Today we chat to the beautiful creators behind the amazing small business The Print Sisters.
Inspired by a stroll along a trail on the beautiful southern Victoria coastline Print Sisters is a local business producing a range of unique Australian-themed textiles.
Sisters Julie and Tabitha have taken their inspiration from what they saw while walking the Surf Coast trail and are creating Australian-inspired and on trend textiles designs, printed and made locally by family and friends.
The beauty and uniqueness of Australia has been brought alive within their designs which feature in gorgeous handmade tea towels, cushions, soft furnishings, zipper pouches and baby wraps.
These designs include Australian flora, fauna and bird life, and with the diversity of these in our beautiful country there are many to choose from.
