Orange Bicycle Designs
Where nostalgia and contemporary living meet.
I’m Maggie Koller and I created Orange bicycle designs in 2013 after I tried to find an adult size backpack that was fun, colourful and made from feel good fabrics. I am a self taught designer and have been making clothing and accessories for myself and family since I was a teenager. The business was named after my beloved Orange bicycle which for me represents freedom, adventure, individuality, health and helping the environment and society.
The durable practical casual weekend holiday hats and bags are Retro Boho design and reflect casual contemporary living for those who like to live colourfully. In Australia the strong Summer sun means that we absolutely need stylish hats to be a regular part of our clothing choices. Cycling is encouraged as a lifestyle choice. The newsboy cap, hip bag and swag bag are all ideal for commuter cyclists.
Environmental sustainability and ethical production is important at Orange bicycle designs. We use repurposed street banners to line the bags and are currently sourcing fabrics made from recycled PET bottles. The minimal leather we use are offcuts sourced from reputable upholsterers. The sewing work is done by myself, local independent machinists and ethical production partners.
Orange bicycle designs is a synergy of my passion and my occupation. I also work part-time as a Social Sciences Secondary School teacher. My geography and history knowledge is incorporated into The Ethical Shopper Blog available on this website. Compiled by a teacher, instead of a fashion journalist or marketer the blog aims to educate consumers about how our fashion and textiles are produced so people can make better choices with their purses and wallets.
