Born out of a love affair with my mothers’ wardrobe, Australian womenswear label merri (meaning “joyous” “happy”) was born.
Here at merri I wanted to create beautiful clothing and accessories with meaning and soul. Exquisite items that can be worn both day and night, from beach to bar. Items that can be passed down to your daughter, then theirs. Real heirloom pieces, timeless and classic.
An effortlessly feminine style forms the philosophy behind Merri. Inspired by the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s and all those pieces you wish your mum had kept.
I care deeply about our environment and believe in conscious creation. I work hard to deliver collections that are equal parts beauty and heart and that are a step in the right direction towards a more sustainable future.
You will only ever find your merri pieces handmade from natural fibres such as cotton, linen and hemp. You will often see an injection of dead stock and vintage fabrics (that I have lovingly collected over the years) fabrics that may have otherwise ended up in landfill. Every fabric I choose is carefully selected for its reduced impact on our environment and uncompromising beauty.
The production process here at merri is slow and beautiful. Limited edition and non mass produced.
Every single merri piece is made ethically and with so much love by a husband and wife team in the middle of Denpasar, Bali. They work from home alongside their loved ones and are paid fair and well. Something I hold so close to my heart.
When you choose merri, you are not only supporting my dreams but also the livelihoods of every single person involved in the process.
I hope that your merri piece delivers happiness to your wardrobe for many years to come.
With love always,
