Inspired by all things 70s, Bohemian, & Free Spirited, Fleetwood Collection brings you carefully curated treasures to make you feel unique and special - like a gold dust woman.
My name is Dan and I have owned and run my store in the Dandenong Ranges for nearly 15 years. It has been an ever evolving, learning journey, but one thing that has continually flowed throughout - is my love for everything bohemian, vintage, and travel. I love ev-er-y-thing boho and really, I am a hippy at heart!
With that love of travelling to far off lands, I am dedicated to bringing you global wares that are unique & eclectic. I hand pick each piece that has been lovingly made by artisans using only fair trade & ethical practices. From Hilltribe Silver high up in the hills of Northern Thailand, to supporting small family business in India, everything is created and traded fairly.
I also offer our in house Fleetwood Collection Clothing Label. From our hand embroidered cotton range made by artisans in Thailand, each order taking weeks to be hand stitched and sewn from its conception. To our Indian ranges inspired by vintage 1970s dresses and made using practices four generations old, these dresses are effortless and timeless. Using hand carved blocks and traditional block printing methods on naturally dyed fabrics, the appreciation I have for this craft after seeing it done firsthand is one of awe.
I wanted to create the ultimate bohemian pieces you will grab for every day, that will become better with age as you wear them. Every artisan in every corner of the globe I work with has taken months and years of travel, development and relationship building, to unfold to the final products - I absolutely love what I do and hope you do too.
My roots and the foundation of my business is VINTAGE - how can I not offer this sustainable option?! All of our vintage pieces are one-off and have a story to tell... they are chosen for their uniqueness, quality and collectability; items that have been cherished and loved by someone in a different time and place. When you choose one of these, either in our shopfront in Belgrave or online here, you are choosing a unique piece that only you will behold. I treasure hunt for you day in and day out - I live, sleep, love and breathe it..... and I hope you will find a special treasure here just right for you.
"I wanna rock your gypsy soul,
just like way back in the days of old.
Then magnificently we will float, into the mystic." Van Morrison
