She often begins each design with a pencil or paintbrush in hand and can’t wait to run downstairs to print it on one of our two century-old letterpress printers.

Meet Dubbleyou's new friend--Hank in Cheif

Hank in Chief is the gorgeous label started by Ashley Nash for her own wedding last year. These stunning creations are lovingly hand-made in Sydney and are the perfect gift or solution to your wedding party strife.

What do you find inspiration in?
I find it hard not to find inspiration in things. We are constantly surrounded by many forms of inspiration whether it be shapes, texture, colour, movement, film and music. I'm lucky enough to live in a pretty darn inspiring world!

What is your favourite material to work with?
I think its always been fine cottons and linens. I love working with fabric's mainly because of their texture and flexibility. Its amazing what you can create using a few metres of cloth! 

Why do you love design?
I love that design has the ability to create lasting impressions. At the core of design is creation, I love watching an idea grow and evolve. Design with intent can make the world a better place. Now who wouldn't love that!?

Something you're good at?
Remembering birthdays and reverse parking! (can I have 2?)

Something you're terrible at?
Decision making! But I'm a Libran so I think thats pretty normal for us.

Meet Dubbleyou's new friend--ALAS

So I'm pretty excited to be able to share my space with a talented few. One being ALAS, they make stunning sleepwear in beautiful patterns and comfy fabrics. They even head over to India once a year to check in with their makers and make sure everything is ticking along nicely and fairly.

I had a quick chat to the girls about their label and what makes them happy on the inside:

What do you find inspiration in?
Kelly and I usually combine all of our inspiration together to make a big colourful soup of old paintings, songs we've heard on the radio, camping trips under the stars, crazy new collections from emerging and established designers around the world, cobwebs and other feats of nature... this list could go on for days as we are perpetually in awe of this mad universe!

What is your favourite material to work with?
All of our sleepwear is 100% organic cotton, which we believe is the most soft, comfortable and breathable fabric for sleeping in! 

Why do you love design?
Design comes pretty naturally to us, like taking a bath or making lunch. Seeing an idea become reality has got to be one of the most satisfying things ever!

Something you're good at?
Coming up with new weird colour combinations

Something you're terrible at?
Kelly and I are both terrible at remembering keys, I am locked out of my house today uh oh!
