Naturally handdyed, ethically handmade with pride — at RŪPAHAUS, every piece worth so much more with each thread loomed, as they are a true reflection of the time spent in the making, the endurance of the makers, the untold story.
RŪPAHAUS is an Australian-based ethical fashion company operating with total transparency, as well as a commitment to environmental and social responsibility; home to naturally dyed and ethically handmade products.
Their journey began in 2016, with a vision to create a sustainable fashion practice that merges the contrast of past and future. Founder Stephanie started it off as a collaborative project with traditional local artisans in rural Indonesia in response to the shift towards a slower lifestyle. Her sisters — Adeline and Nathascha joined soon after. Having grown up between Indonesia, Australia and Germany, the trio integrates the three cultures in their livelihood and their journey led to the birth of RŪPAHAUS, a platform that not only embraces the artisans and the natural resources found in Indonesia, but also gives back and empowers the communities and the environments where the cultures collide.
