Subtropic

Inspired by invigorating ocean swims and balmy summer nights, Subtropic offers a truly unique line of hand crafted bags & accessories.

Based on the Mid North Coast of NSW, the label evolved after a move from Melbourne. With versatility & sustainability in mind, the designer has sought to create a range of every day essentials that are long lasting & functional.

Bags & accessories are constructed from organic cotton canvas that has been certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). The leather that is featured throughout the range is vegetable tanned in a soft, natural colour; which, over time will develop a rich patina unique to your travels.

Subtropic utilises both screen printing & hand dyeing to create it's unique textiles. Screen printing is outsourced to Printink Studio in Melbourne who use GOTS approved water-based inks. Subtropic's hand dyed range is created in small batches. Thoughtfully hand dyed by the designer using a dynamic process that renders every piece one-of-a-kind.
