Colours of Australia was started in 1991 by Renske Carbone. In 2000 she was joined in the business by her husband John.
The first products were hand painted scarves, table linen and bed linen.
Since then the products have changed a lot but one thing has remained the same: the focus on creating wonderful, usuable products that add colour to our lives.
There is a focus on early childhood, educational and custom designed products. An additional focus of working with natural fibres and fair trade has added to the enjoyment of developing the range and is helping small communities in other countries, especially Nepal where all the felt work is done.
