Landhaus produces slow-made clothing liberated from seasonal trends, gender and age.
We do not take the responsibility of producing clothing lightly, and have implemented a circular system that breathes life into antique and vintage fabrics of strictly natural fibres. Carefully sourced from around the globe, the fabric is chosen for its unique story, composition and splendour. The textiles inform our vision, and are transformed into one-of-a-kind garments that champion ease of wear. Working with a local seamstress to create each piece, we release them as they are made. The patterns have been inspired by treasures that founder Tara Kehoe has collected since her youth.
Landhaus found its name after Tara spent several years acquiring vintage materials that had ties to Bavaria. Growing up surrounded by her Oma's ceramics and textiles from this region further inspired her to connect back with the crafts of her heritage. This, in turn, sparked an interest in using household textiles that no longer functioned for the home.
Akin to its name, the sourcing, design and making process of Landhaus evokes a slower way of life – like moving to the country – prioritising our Mother Earth, beauty and comfort.
Landhaus designs and makes clothing on the lands of the Boon Wurrung/ Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation. We would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of country throughout the Kulin Nation and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all First Nations people today.
