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, Uncle Phuncle has evolved to offer a range of clothing for men and women 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).
Uncle Phuncle is all about timeless silhouettes with a nod to mid-century design and music. Wanting to advocate for and promote local industry, the fabrics and supplies used to make the designs are often sourced from local suppliers using deadstock fabrics, as well as some Phuncle exclusive prints that are designed and hand printed right here in the studio.To contact Ash, say hi, ask a question, enquire about a creative collaboration and/ or share your favourite Dad joke, please email email@example.com
