Our garment and fabric designing all happens in our Bangalow Studio, Australia.
Our Garments are all ethically crafted in Indonesia, our home away from home, as we feel so strongly connected to its rich culture of textiles, printing and colour.
Lead by our head Tailor and production Manager Jero, 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 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 as 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 Indonesia Studio.
Head to our videos page to watch the process
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.
