Unknown Quantity - chance encounters with rare delights

Apparel and accessories – Vintage, recycled, and new fabrics are carefully selected to create one-offs and limited runs, along with some hand-picked and modified vintage also being on offer. Our philosophy is to focus on form and originality, transcending trends and conformity; character and individual style are encouraged over trend-driven seasonal looks. By making our garments into lasting, collectible items that transcend fads or trends, another dimension of sustainability is added.

Stationery - 100% recycled paper is used as well as upcycled, usually vintage components, to create items intended to be treasured and collected. Greeting cards sometimes feature calligraphic accents amidst rare ephemera and original artwork.

Décor - Vintage and upcycled materials and pieces are presented to preserve the distinctive finds that have been painstakingly sourced; each piece is intended to be a collectable keepsake.

Coming soon- Psi-fi series
An illustrated series exploring the worlds of dreams, imagination, heart, and mind in an alchemical journey of transformation. Join us on social media for updates and release details, or stay tuned here.

    Obsessively collecting rare and vintage materials has been a life-long compulsion for Del, who followed the ambition to create and design from her earliest years. She now channels the collection of rarities built up over the years into one-offs.

~~ Sizes/measurements ~~

Considering that buying clothes online can be tricky, I measure the garment's maximum or minimum girth where applicable. I aim to be as clear as possible with measurements and I strongly encourage using my guidelines and measuring yourself before purchasing. Feel free to contact me to get further measurements or clarification are required!
Orders will be shipped to the address listed with Paypal (or Etsy if you pay by another method). If you would like your item shipped to a different address just let me know during the checkout process or by convo.

I aim to get your order in the post within 48 hours of payment confirmation. Purchases made on a Friday or over a weekend won't be sent until Monday.

Orders within Australia take approximately five working days.
Air mail out of Australia to the rest of the world can take up to 2-3 weeks.

Every effort is made to ensure orders are well protected during postage - as such I cannot accept any responsibility for any items lost or damaged during delivery! For extra assurance I will be happy to upgrade post or add insurance.

~~ Packaging ~~

I use recycled packaging where possible; if you prefer new packaging, please contact me and I will happily oblige. I do make the prettiest and best of my recycled materials however!

~~ Quality ~~

Each original design item is meticulously handmade in a pet-free, smoke-free environment and is guaranteed to be made with love and care. If there are any concerns please feel comfortable to convo me!

All vintage items are quality checked, washed, and if necessary repaired or reinforced. The aim is to curate and present finds based on their iconic, collectable, and distinctive qualities as well as their rarity.

Please note that original design pieces are created by hand, so no two items are identical - this makes each item extra special, really!

~~ Custom orders ~~

No custom orders are made at this time.
