Tess’ Story

Hello, and thank you for stopping by. I’m Tess, and I’m a sustainable Jewellery Designer.

My work is inspired by sunlight, happy people, and sustainable materials.

Ethical and environmentally sustainable fashion fuels all my designs, and I believe it has the potential to change the world.

My Monkey & Mum creations are handcrafted by me from woven organic cottons that have been custom printed with low impact water based dyes. They are completely safe for mothers to wear as they contain no harmful toxins or small parts.

My unique designs for mums landed me silver at the 2015 National Ausmumpreneur People’s Choice Awards in Melbourne last year, and have been featured in Cosmopolitan Pregnancy, Peppermint Magazine, My Child Magazine, and The Sunday Mail.

2015 proved to be a busy year for me, with the launch of my second label Sahasa, which allows me to work closely with less fortunate women in India, empowering them to overcome poverty and gender inequality through Fair Trade.

More recently, I launched the Monkey & Mum Community. A space for mums to lift each other up and offer the support and laughter that’s so desperately needed on this crazy journey. I firmly believe that love has the power to change the world. Mwah!
