The creation of Dot and Frankie came about from having too many similar conversations with people about making environmentally friendly and ethical shopping choices. It no longer means that you need to choose fabrics and textures that were made from rough, neutral materials, and they couldn't be fun or beautiful.
We decided we needed to change that!
The idea behind Dot and Frankie is to create a place to be able to purchase gorgeous, luxurious and lovely products that are made and sourced ethically and sustainably.
And our newest step is to create our own custom clothing line that provides body positive shapes in ethical and sustainable fabrics with beautiful prints by local and Australian artists. Printed and sewn in small batches in Gariwerd and Melbourne, we can now bring you local ethical fashion designed for our customer by us!
We are constantly researching new products to find premium fashion, lifestyle, skin care and reusable items to stock in our store. These can then either be purchased online or found in our retail store in the middle of the stunning Gariwerd (Grampians) National Park in Halls Gap.
It is definitely possible to buy something that is both beautiful to use and beautiful to the planet.
