Our brand began in 2000 with a simple little A-line dress sewn for friends and family. It was a practical, comfy shape that could be adjusted to suit the little girl as she grew. Each one was handmade using original vintage fabrics with lovingly stitched details like embroidery, special buttons or trims. Our original label Miamore emerged and gained representation in several Sydney boutiques.
Soon our range expanded to meet demand for interesting boys wear with the same quirky sensibility - the Raisin did it was born.
the Raisin did it has since grown to include all manner of girls and boys clothing and accessories with an emphasis on bold colours, vibrant patterns and animal motifs. We use a mixture of vintage and new fabrics and also hand screen-print many items with our original artworks to maintain a unique edge. The Raisin's creations are handmade in small quantities or as one-offs, each with an individual finishing touch. However, we believe that special things should be enjoyed everyday, so a Raisin treasure is always comfy, durable and affordable.
The Raisin's playful, happy aesthetic is inspired by childhood memories, imaginings, story books, nature and everyday life. We create products that are as special and rare as the little person who wears them.
