OUR STORY WITH JAPANESE TEXTILES AND CRAFTS BEGINS IN AUSTRALIA AND CONTINUES IN FRANCE

'We dream of the rhythm of sashiko stitching, shibori indigos, the wabi-sabi of yarn-dyed cloth. The age-old techniques of Japanese textile crafts are part of what stirred us to create BeBe Bold, based both near Byron Bay in Australia and the east of France at the base of the Jura mountains. We love the mishmash of our everyday, an Australian-French family with a love of travel and Japanese textiles.'

 

BeBe Bold’s origins on the North Coast of NSW in Australia have now extended to the Franche-Comté region of France. Created by Jane MacDonald over ten years ago, BeBe Bold is a recognised name in Australian textiles and craft. BeBe Bold is a visible presence at Australian craft and quilt shows and recently in Europe and the UK, having a stall at the 2018 Festival of Quilts in Birmingham and teaching in France and the UK.
