Rabosi Design is beautifully crafted stylish women's fashion with a hint of fun. Designed and made at my home studio formerly in Mirboo North South Gippsland, now Palmerston New Zealand I draw my inspiration from beautiful South Island of New Zealand and a love of vibrant colour.
I use natural fibres (linen and cotton) sourced mostly from Japan and Europe. I strive to make all of my designs timeless, well made from quality fabrics that can be worn throughout the whole year and can be dressed up or down becoming that much loved wardrobe favourite for many years.
Each garment I make is created uniquely using high quality natural fibres of cotton and linen either, printed or creating my own designs using a variety of embroidery techniques.
I work hard to minimize waste within my studio and support my local community by constantly sorting off cuts for use as features on garments, passing some to local primary Schools and kindergartens for art projects, Some go to another local maker who produces bags and some to another studio to use as inspiration for artworks.
The embroidery threads I use for free motion embroidery are hand dyed by another Gippsland business, Cottage Garden threads that employ a number of women within my local community.
I am currently working in conjuction with our local boomerang bags initiative providing offcuts for bags and also taking a supply of these to markets instead of using plastic or paper bags
My range includes skirts, pants, pinafores, tunic tops, dresses and scarves.
