Celebrating Women in Design for IWD

Celebrating Women in Design for IWD

It's International Women's Day this week, and I'm taking the opportunity to celebrate our incredible female designers, makers and creatives.

At Gingerfinch, we live and breathe our values of integrity, quality and sustainability with everything we do, every product we stock, and everyone we work with. So, I did a little survey of all the great brands we showcase, and guess what, well over half of the designers, authors and makers we work with are women! And that number didn't even include the fabulous husband-wife teams on our brand list (of which, there are a few). I am so proud to work with so many talented women, so I wanted to feature them here. 

If you want to spoil a fabulous, inspirational woman in your life, why not shop from this collection!

To give you a little taste of the collection, here's a couple of female brands we love.

By Mölle

This stunning Dutch brand is the creation of Marianne Maat. By Mölle is ethical design at it's very best. Marianne's fabrics are women in Europe using sustainably-sourced materials. Her recycled denim products are our absolute favourites! By Mölle products are sewn in her studio in rural Holland, making everything to order with as little waste as possible.

Alison Jackson

Alison Jackson is one of Australia's most renowned and celebrated silversmiths. Pairing fine hand-making skills with industrial processes and highly customised tooling, Alison's products are handcrafted by her and her small team in her Canberra workshop. She has an incredible eye for detail - and she is a darn cool chick, to boot!

Tina Frey Designs

Tina Frey started her design studio in 2007. It started as an outlet for her many creative interests, but her work is now coveted for its refined simplicity and unique style. Every piece is hand crafted by Tina in her San Francisco based studio. She sculpts clay moulds then casts the vessels in small batches. Each piece is hand sanded and carries a unique beauty.
