Hubble + Duke started over a coffee and the noise of Jo, Katie and Rosie’s eight children at the playground on Hubble Street. These three creative mums from Fremantle, Western Australia have a background and interest in design. Inspired by the online community of creative and entrepreneurial mums they dreamed of starting a dynamic children’s brand. A business that would enable them to follow their passion while working together from their homes.

With eight kids between them ranging from one to six, they never have to look far for gorgeous little ones to test their wares. Hubble + Duke moccasins are handmade using 100% super soft yet hardwearing genuine leather. Made with an elasticised opening the moccs fit snuggly on your child’s foot and are easy to get on but hard to kick off! This makes them perfect for newborns, toddlers and even walkers.

What is your favourite way to spend time with the kids?

We have eight kids (aged between 1 and 6) between the three of us and that makes for a rowdy big group when we’re all together! We have a favourite spot down near the river where there is a little coffee shop and a playground.. We often meet there so the kids can run around and burn off some energy, especially after school and during the summer holidays!

Who inspires you?

Our kids are always our first source of inspiration! For kidswear, interiors, style ideas etc you cant go past Pinterest and of course Instagram has been such an integral part of our business. We love how you can connect directly with people from all around the world, its so inspiring seeing how others live and work, juggling and balancing work and children while keeping their passion for creativity alive!
