Each AUBE’s piece is designed and handmade by Louise, in a little corner of her house in Richmond, Victoria which is where Pookipoiga is located too :).
Aube believe in quality and timeless design so Louise uses one pattern and a large variety of colours, prints, styles in her fabrics so each one of you find their favourite item.
You’ll love these unique Aube pieces for years to come.
Architect and Urban Designer trained, Louise got a deep and abiding interest in pattern, texture and design and is committed to a making-practice that is sustainable and sensitive to our environemental footprint. Aube only gather fabrics from Australia and from Louise's travels but never involve any long distance shipping. Louise tries her best to maximise her use of fabric and have a minimum waste. Most of the fabric leftover are reused for smaller items given to AUBE’s lovers. Labels are made of organic cotton and water based ink.

*AUBE = AU (Australia) BE (Belgium).
A story that began in Belgium where Louise lived before moving to Melbourne, Australia, where she continued her passion for sewing and Aube.
AUBE is french for DAWN : the most beautiful time of the day and the beginning of all things.
