Mookah. Nicole and Leisa. Two creative sisters.
Leisa is younger……Nicole is older
Leisa likes to think she’s the boss…..and Nicole is happy to let her think that.
Nicole was always the arty farty one, and Leisa the more organised one.
Both however have a keen sense of colour, texture and design.
Both dreamt of one day running a business together, but didn't really think it would happen, until one day, personal circumstances changed, the stars aligned, and a little project together developed into a business proposition. It all started in 2009 in a single car garage before progressing to a tin shed in an industrial area, and these days we have our own bricks and mortar store in coastal Inverloch with our working studio out the back.
The Mookah philosophy can be summed up as ‘natural, earthy and simple’.
The clothing is loved for its wearability and uncomplicated design, and the fabrics/homewares for their beautiful textures and simplistic designs.
It's the culmination of our creative energies, sometimes wacky ideas, and random thoughts, that produce mookah designs. Only those that we both love make it past the starting gate.
Mookah is now bigger than just the two of us though. It includes others such as Kate, Red & Dainy who help us out in the shop, Mum & Dad who run errands for us and help out here and there, and Daz Man who is always building something or other for us.
