From the much anticipated second 'Outback Wife' collection by Australian designer Cathi Bessell-Browne of Gertrude Made.
Inspired by the beautiful barkcloth fabrics of the 1940s and 1950s, each detail of this collection has been meticulously and sincerely considered to create a range with an authentic vintage voice. The stunning hand-painted floral designs printed on an exclusive cotton barkcloth base, tell the stories of Australian rural women.
Outback Wife is an ode to the strength, passion and courage of rural women across Australia.
