Outback Wife by Gertrude Made presale!

Outback Wife is the debut 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. The stunning hand-painted floral designs printed on an exclusive cotton barkcloth base are an ode to the strength, passion and courage of rural women across Australia.

Outback Wife by Gertrude Made

Inspired by the beautiful floral barkcloth fabrics of the 1940s and 1950s, each detail of this collection has been meticulously and sincerely considered to create a range with an authentic vintage voice. We hope you love our selection as much as we do! You can place your pre-sale order here.
