Supporting local artisans and makers is a big part of our philosophy here at I saw this and thought of you.
This month we bring you an interview with the lovely Helen Wright, the creator behind our favourite luxe baby wraps, 'Bumble and Oshie'.
HI HELEN, TELL US ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS AND THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR PRODUCTS.
Bumble and Oshie are the creators of beautiful handmade baby wraps. A dusting of old world charm with a little sprinkle of boho and a kiss of shabby chic. All our wraps carry the licenced Australian Made Logo so you know you have the best. Our inspiration came from the need for a high quality sewn fabric and lace wrap for our girls.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT WHAT YOU DO?
Creating fabric and laces choices for each collection.

Afternoon school pick up comes quickly then homework and sporting activities begin. Then the day comes to a close with dinner, bath and bed for our girls.
