About us

Monsoons and Mangoes was established as a hobby in 2006 with a focus on creating beautiful handmade upcycled vintage clothing.  The range of clothing and homewares delighted buyers because items were unique and one-of-a-kind and held immense appeal to unconventional, free-spirited types.  Monsoons and Mangoes quickly became a well known label in the Australian handmade world for women and children, and namely our hugely popular "Soul Vibration" patchwork skirts.  

Years later, select vintage pieces still feature in delightful garments, patchwork and homewares which are vibrant and truly unique.  Most pieces are eco-friendly, as they are made from upcycled fabrics and remnants. Every piece made is still one-of-a-kind. The children's range is designed with versatility mind: what was purchased as a baby dress is intended to be worn as a top for years to come.  I often hear back from long-term customers, proudly telling me that 7+ years on, the garments are still being worn and loved.  Most customers save their purchases (particularly patchwork skirts and dresses) as heirloom pieces, and if not, they lovingly hand them down to favourite friends or family members.

In January 2018, Monsoons and Mangoes took up residence at the glorious Original Kuranda Rainforest Markets. A long-term dream come true. Find us at Shop 11 - at the end of “eat street”. Here you’ll find a range of ready-made garments and homewares. I do usually accept custom orders, so please feel free to ask. Additionally, I am offering alterations and repairs at competitive rates.
