Outback Wife is the collection of Cathi Bessell-Browne, the hands and heart behind Gertrude Made.
Each fabric has been a labour of love and they have taken more than a year to complete.
Inspired by the beautiful floral barkcloth fabrics of the 1940s and 1950s, each detail of this slow fabric collection has been meticulously and sincerely considered to create a range with an authentic vintage voice. This year, the exquisite hand-painted designs are woven with the stories of seven rural women from the station country of the Gascoyne Region in Western Australia’s north-west.
The stunning hand-painted floral designs printed on an exclusive cotton barkcloth base, tell the story of four Australian rural women.
Outback Wife is an ode to the strength, passion and courage of rural women across Australia.
The price is per quarter and this stunning barkcloth is 150cm wide. All multiples will be cut continuously from the bolt.
