about us

Retrobub is made in Melbourne by designer Bronwyn Howell . With the guiding ideas of fun and practicality each garment in the range is designed to bring a smile to your face. Cute little animal faces, avocados and gumnuts are some of the designs that start as drawings and then are translated into a fabric collage which is sewn on. This technique know as applicae gives a long lasting finish meaning garments can be worn and worn and then be passed down to another child to be worn some more. Also as each applicae is individually sewn it has its own character and a special feel that is missing in the world of mass produced. We think kids pick up on that handmade specialness and we hear from parents all the time how their children want to wear their retrobub everyday.
