Celebrating Makers | International Women's Day

International Women's Day is a great time to recognise the amazing women around us. At O Gosh, we're especially grateful for the talented women who create the beautiful, unique products we offer. Today, we're introducing you to some of these inspiring women through their products.

Read on to meet the women who made these fabulous homewares and pampering products.


Michelle Kistima-Menser, who grew up in South Africa, produces fabric and homewares, and teaches screen printing, in her inner Sydney studio. Her lush and colourful designs reflect coastal and tidal patterns.

Warningakalina women on Groote Eylandt run a social enterprise where they produce luxurious skincare products and support their communities. Drawing upon traditional wisdom passed down through the centuries, they incorporate a range of native botanicals into their products.

Nina Koops lives in southern Tasmania where she produces a range of quirky rusted steel garden animals, full of personality, at her family foundry in the beautiful Huon Valley.

Brigitta Altschwager, from Adelaide, produces a range of textiles and homewares featuring her own retro-inspired designs. Where possible, she uses fabric that's produced in Australia.

We're inspired by these women, and hope you are too.

All our products at O Gosh Shop are made in Australia by people committed to sustainable and ethical business practices.


This is the first in a series about our talented makers, artists, and designers. Check back soon to meet more of these fabulous Australians.
