Our process

Hand Crafted in India

Every House of Lacuna piece is made using traditional hand-stitching and block printing methods; an age-old artform that makes for detail and quality that is rarely seen in today’s fast-fashion obsessed world.The resulting pieces are items rich in quality, detail and lifelong wearability, where the people responsible for them earn a good living, can support their families and work in conditions that are safe. Our pieces are designed to be trans-seasonal; layered for winter, paired back for summer, and loved over and over again.

Our Story

Naomi Swalwell comes from a long line of entrepreneurs, with her great grandfather founding the nationally treasured brand, Cottees. 

It was her grandmother Mae, in fact, who came up with the Aussie staple of every family’s summer, ‘Passiona’, helping her father to lovingly squeeze the fruits for each batch of cordial and jam. 

Naomi’s fashion credentials are vast and impressive, with stints in design production at Zambesi and womenswear design at Bonds. It was these experiences that Naomi credits to her love for homegrown brands; ones that cultivate and celebrate the laid-back Aussie aesthetic, and snap-change seasons of the land down under.

Using renewable textiles and Employing Local Workers to create timeless, quality garments.

Thoughtfully Designed
Lovingly Hand-Crafted

At House of Lacuna, we don’t believe in seasonal collections. In fact, we stay away from doing anything quickly; without conscience.

Our styles are slow from infancy: designed, hand-stitched and printed with intention and purpose at every step. The result is simple, timeless and classic fashion, worn for years and across every season.

Supporting Artisans in India and their communities, with integrity, honour and grace.

Every texile print Naomi Designs inhouse through motif design in illustrator and photoshop.
