The best all Australian brands for Mums
Posted on 21 April 2016
In Part Two of our all-Australian special, we feature our favourite brands for mummies. They may also act as a little gift inspiration for upcoming Mothers’ Day on Sunday May 8.
bassike was established in 2006 by Deborah Sams and Mary Lou Ryan. Their unassuming, classic aesthetic is coupled with high-end design and construction using the most beautiful fabrics available. For mums, their collection is effortless and chic. In addition to their gorgeous designs, bassike supports the Mirabel foundation – a non-for-profit charity that provides support to orphaned and neglected children in Australia.
STATE OF ESCAPE
STATE OF ESCAPE was founded by Brigitte MacGowan and Desley Maidment in 2013 and we have absolutely fallen in love with their concept! Their use of neoprene fabric is genius in showcasing their 'carryall' bags. Lightweight, strong and soft to touch, these 'non nappy bags' perfectly transform from the gym to the park to the shops. With a nod to the Australian harbour lifestyle, the use of sailing rope straps ties it all in. Sophisticated and simple, you will not regret the investment made for this classic and timeless bag.

Face Hero – a lightweight face oil that deeply hydrates, soothes and boosts your skin. Perfect for mums who have had a few sleepless nights. www.gotoskincare.com
