Perth Upmarket

My trip to the Perth Upmarket on Sunday was fantastic. I am in awe of all the talented people there are in our city - and our state for that matter. People came to show their wares all the way from Geraldton!

Among my favourites there on Sunday were Eco Peko, Rubber Gob & Mokoh Design.

Eko Peko has beautiful 100% organic cotton t-shirts for babies and kids and are available in sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 1 year & 2 years.

Their designs are gorgeous and have messages including "eco babies say no to plastic" and "My Dad recylces more than your Dad". I bought one for my son that says "Little Greenie".

Each t-shirt comes in a gorgeous hessian eco bag with some open pollenated, certified organic veggie seeds inside for $49.95.

Rubbergob is the brainchild of Graphic Designer & artist Rachael Barkess,
and her business partner Janine Finnie.

Based in Perth, Rubbergob produces greeting cards, printed works and paper based items.

I love their Domestic Drudgery range which includes "Big Bums",
"Fork You" and "Watchadoin".

They also have gorgeous gift tags, canvas prints and a kids range.

Mokoh Designs is based in Perth, WA and is owned by artist Trudy Baker and husband Andy. Mokoh is named after their 2 children, Molly and Koh.

All Trudy's creations are handmade with the majority of the products made from Elemental
Chlorine Free pulp sourced from sustainable, well managed forests.

Mokoh has a cute range of gift cards called "Parliament" which features the most gorgeous owls. I had to buy a large print for my son's bedroom then the lovely Trudy gave me one of her too cute Parliament Owl cutouts. I feel very privelledged as these were not for sale, but Trudy went in search of a spare one for me to take home.

Mokoh Designs also has a fantastic range of notebooks, magnets, stationary pegs and tile pendants. Their online store is coming soon!
