About Uncle Phuncle
Uncle Phuncle was founded by Ash (pictured below), a self taught designer and maker. Starting out with a few hand printed t-shirts and cotton skirts, the label has evolved to offer a range of clothing all designed and hand made in Melbourne, Australia.
With a focus on slow fashion and supporting local fabric suppliers and haberdashers, all Uncle Phuncle pieces are lovingly designed and made in small quantities in our Melbourne studio by Ash (Hi!) with Bernie the Bernina sewing machine.
Frustrated with the fleeting trends of seasonal releases, the Phuncle philosophy remains that your wardrobe should be like your favourite music: A great hit should be enjoyed all year round and for years to come! (fun fact - Many Uncle Phuncle designs are named after the creator's favourite tracks). Rather than seasonal collections, the Phuncle wardrobe focuses on key wardrobe staples that are released in new prints and colours.
Uncle Phuncle is all about timeless silhouettes and adapting the classic elements of the 60s and 70s and reimagining them for your modern wardrobe. Wanting to advocate for and promote local industry, the fabrics and supplies are sourced from local suppliers using new and deadstock fabrics, as well as some exclusive prints that are designed and hand printed right here in the studio.
For a brighter future for fashion, Uncle Phuncle stands for a return to vintage fashion values - Quality pieces, designed and made ethically with intention and thoughtfulness.
