Moody rabbit inspires Many handcrafted creations

WHILE travelling in a campervan around Europe, Hannah Goggs never imagined that her moody lop rabbit companion Cherry would inspire a line of handcrafted work back in Fremantle.

Making and hand stitching items to keep her occupied while spending long hours on the road, Cherry was always right beside Ms Goggs while she was creating.

Cherry has since become the namesake behind Moody Rabbit, a collection of handmade clothes, bags and homewares that incorporate Ms Goggs’ other love: Australian flora and fauna.

“I am so inspired by our flora and fauna because of their beautiful colours; I love our salmon gum eucalyptus and silver princess eucalyptus, and I actually became more appreciative of it all since being away,” she said.

“I really missed Perth’s huge blue open skies and the noise of parrots and birds in the mornings.

“I make things for the home, ceramic pieces, sell kokedamas and even clothes.”

Ms Goggs is one of many small businesses who followed Many 6160 from Kings Square to its new Adelaide Street home and she said she was enjoying the new Many 2.0.

“I am finding it really good and it is a nicer, cleaner building,” she said.

“It has a real community feel and we look out for each other; I love it there.”

Moody Rabbit can be found inside the new Many 2.0 at 52 Adelaide Street.

Many 2.0 is open every Thursday to Sunday 10am to 5pm.
