Months ago, when we first started discussing the possibility of setting up a small business we were stumped by the name, searching for the perfect name was really hard!! Until "BAM!" it struck Tatum on one of the many drives from Adelaide back to Roxby Downs...Unicycle Design...
Unique + Recycled = Perfect!
Unicycle Design is a brand born of the love of unique finds and designs, creatively finding new uses for both vintage and pre-loved textiles...upcycling. An eclectic range of clothes, bags, toys and accessories for people with a great sense of style and fun!
After 'discovering' Unicycle Design we quickly realised that our ideas extended into clothing that would be made from all new materials. We didn't want to compromise what Unicycle is all about so we knew we would need a second brand...with this realisation we also knew we would need to work under an all encompassing umbrella.
After several days of throwing names around we decided on Green Dandelion as our business name and, naturally, our 'all new' brand would be Dandelion Design. However, after some reflection time we didn't think tat Dandelion Design would suit everything we wanted to do with the brand. To be honest, I can't even remember what made us think of fabrication...we thought it sounded edgy and it's literal meaning 'the act of making something' just seemed to work. The idea for the logo came from a washing instruction tag, we thought it would be cool to trade the washing machine and iron for clothing 'icons' and Danielle has done a fabulous job of turning my scribble on paper into something we just love (just like all our logos and web design!).
We can't wait to start introducing our fabrication line to you over the coming months. Like everything sold at Green Dandelion it will be ethically produced and over time we hope to introduce more and more organic materials. Fabrication will aim to produce garments for all ages, stages and sizes and like Unicycle we will definitely welcome custom orders!
