OOLAH STUDIO was founded by Rachel Grimes-Carmichael in 2017, a momentous year in the Surface Designer’s life where she uncovered a passion for process, creating patterns and playing with colour.

A Block Printing Workshop in Sydney introduced Rachel to a completely new perspective of creating. She was immediately drawn to the simple, instantaneous method and the rhythm of the pattern unfolding in front of her eyes.

OOLAH STUDIO design and create original, colourful, perfectly imperfect hand block printed textiles on the Central Coast, NSW.
