Bombazine About Us

Who, why, where is Bombazine?

Not to get all heavy on you, but Bombazine is a silk mix fabric, traditionally dyed black for mourning clothes. Bombazine is also Kate and Klarissa – two childhood friends who bonded over dress ups and dolls clothes in the Melbourne ‘burbs. Decades later we’re still sewing stuff for ourselves and our small people – hitting and missing with each new make, and talking way too much about notions, straight grains, zipper feet and welt pockets. And yeah, we often wear black. It’s Melbourne, remember?
