Castle and Things for Gorman

Habitus was recently enamoured with Rachel Castle’s lively screen prints for Aussie label groan.

CASTLE was founded  by artist Rachel Castle in 2008 when she set sail with her own small range of bedlinen.

Created originally for her friends and family Castle quickly moved on to launch a commercial venture of handcrafted or handprinted, pieces for the home.

Not without the right experience Rachel Castle has spent the past 20 years working in the homewear industry both in Australia and abroad.




Prior to CASTLE, Rachel was joint founder of London-based branding and design agency, The Nest, and before that, worked for The Conran Shop in the UK.

She regularly styles and writes for Australian lifestyle magazines, and currently lives in Sydney.


All handmade artworks are sewn by Rachel Castle and her very patient and loving mother, Jillian Patching.

The images featured are from the a lovely range of tea-towls, hats and bags created with Gorman just in time for Christmas.


Put the love in the coconut when you order with Gorman on line. You could even win one of these fabulous Gorman bikes if you refer a friend! Now that’s neat!
