Han­nah’s sew in­spired

Cockburn Gazette - - STREETWATC­H -

WHILE trav­el­ling in a camper­van around Europe, Han­nah Goggs never imag­ined that her moody lop rab­bit com­pan­ion Cherry would in­spire a line of hand­crafted work back in Fre­man­tle.

Ms Goggs made and hand­stitched items to keep her oc­cu­pied while spend­ing long hours on the road, with Cherry al­ways right be­side her.

Cherry has since be­come the name­sake be­hind Moody Rab­bit, a col­lec­tion of hand­made clothes, bags and home­wares that in­cor­po­rate Ms Goggs’ other love: Aus­tralian flora and fauna.

“I am so in­spired by our flora and fauna be­cause of their beau­ti­ful colours; I love our sal­mon gum eu­ca­lyp­tus and sil­ver princess eu­ca­lyp­tus and I ac­tu­ally be­came more ap­pre­cia­tive of it all since be­ing away,” she said.

“I re­ally missed Perth's huge blue open skies and the noise of par­rots and birds in the morn­ings.

“I make things for the home, ce­ramic pieces, sell kokedamas and even clothes.”

Ms Goggs is one of many small busi­nesses who fol­lowed Many 6160 from Kings Square to its new Ade­laide Street home.

She said she was en­joy­ing the new Many 2.0.

Moody Rab­bit can be found in­side the new Many 2.0 at 52 Ade­laide Street.

Many 2.0 is open ev­ery Thurs­day to Sun­day from 10am to 5pm.
