Our Design Studio and Flagship Store is based in Bangalow, NSW. Our garments are all hand crafted in Ubud, Indonesia.
Lead by our head Tailor and Production Manager, whom we have been working with since 2013, we work with up to 20 independent seamstresses in a village south of Ubud at any given time. They work from one central studio, or have the option to work from home. All the women we know personally, have worked alongside for many years and earn a living wage.
All our fabric designs are completely original and unique, created by our head designer Rachel Cooper.
We source all our own raw fabrics that are grown and woven in Indonesia. We are passionate about fabric texture, composition, feel and weight. Our priority is working with natural fibres, and sustainable options, grown and manufactured locally to our Indonesian Studio.
We use independent, highly skilled artisans throughout Indonesia to create our Iconic fabrics. Each collection is bespoke, and we only print once. This makes each Collection limited edition.
We value the story of our garments and are passionate about traditional printing techniques and producing fabric that embodies the narrative of the creative process.
So when you hold a Frank & Dollys garment understand that you are holding something that has been created by hands, over time with thought and care.
