What is Orange bicycle designs?
I'm Maggie Koller, the creative and business manager behind Orange bicycle designs based in Sydney, Australia. Find joy in the everyday with Retro Boho inspired contemporary lifestyle accessories- sun hats, cycling caps and bags and technology bags and cases. I have always loved textiles and using them to create products, and have done that since I was a teenager. Having a family led to an upsurge in creativity. It was whilst looking for a backpack for my 10 year old daughter that the idea for Orange bicycle designs emerged. We couldn't find anything colourful and fun made from feel good tactile fabrics. How hard could it be to make one? The challenge was set. At the time an artist friend was selling her art at markets. What fun! I needed to try this. What a fabulous experience the markets have been; except maybe for the early morning starts and packing down and up. Otherwise it's been amazing. I've met interesting people and made likeminded friends. This journey has already been a slow steady flame of 5 years. We will continue to trade at selected markets but have exciting plans ahead involving education and learning.... stay in touch to find out more.
