The Bird and Knoll Scarf

What could be more essential than a versatile sarong, which you can use as a wrap on the plane, cover-up next to the pool, headscarf on the beach, or scarf to wear out?

Bird and Knoll’s oversized scarves are created with travel in mind, featuring designs of various destinations captured on camera, and transposed onto its cashmere, cotton and silk blended fabric. The scarves are made in Australia by local duo Natalie Knoll and 
Macayla Chapman.

Helen Kaminski hat

In 1983 Helen Kaminski handcrafted raffia hats for her children from her home in country Australia, to protect them from the sun. She later left one in a small country boutique, which sold almost immediately. The hats are now sold in luxury department stores and boutiques around the world. They are made using sustainable practices, have a SPF of 50+ and some are also rollable, making 
them easy to pack.
