Gertrude Made

Cathi Bessell-Browne, a farmer’s wife in The Great Southern, Western Australia, is the hands and heart behind Gertrude Made.

Taught to sew by her late-grandmother, when she’s not busy wrangling her three kids, she sews the gorgeous handmade frocks she’s become well known for.

Joining the Ella Blue design team, Cathi is combining her love of a good story with her passion for vintage florals, to create what she terms ‘slow fabrics’.

Using a thoughtful design process that takes well more than a year, Cathi is committed to bringing you fabrics that you will love and cherish, not only for their beauty, but also for the story and meaning behind them.
