 Batik fabric and traditional crafts meets contemporary urban style. We're so excited to launch this fabulously unique fashion accessory that every woman needs in her life. We're literally wondering how we lived so long without The Shrug For Women!  Shrugs for women, are like the frock with all the pockets, the pumps without the blisters, the bag for all occasions - finally, the cardigan and scarf we all need is available here in Australia.

The ONLY Shrug For Women

The Shrug is a Cotton Jersey Scarf with Arm Holes, meaning you can wear it as a Scarf but also as a cropped cardigan / bolero to keep your shoulders and arms warm. The perfect thing for in-between seasons and travelling.  Shrugs are women's new best friend, versatile, light weight and oh so hip.

Lightweight and soft the Shrug rolls up and fits in your bag so take it with you everywhere. When the temperature cools pop on the Shrug which ever way you fancy.  

Forget diamonds, shrugs are a girl's best friend

Simply so many applications for Shrugs - wear it on a plane trip, to a concert, over a strapless dress or If you'd rather, just wear it as a scarf.  And frankly, it's the perfect item for any woman living in Melbourne because seriously, what is up with that weather?  

The Absolute Perfect Gift for the Woman who has Everything and who loves all things unique.
