Introducing Myrtle & Dove

Where stories come to life.

Nestled in magical Byron Bay, Myrtle & Dove is inspired by a far off place on a serene archipelago where tales of love, hope, and adventure find their expression. That island community, traditionally inspired by goddesses, nymphs, and enchanted voyagers, thrives amidst lush gardens, stone dwellings, and a rich tapestry of craftsmanship.

In homage to my Maltese ancestors and their island's legacy and the enduring creative spirit of our family, we have embraced the symbols of Aphrodite – the myrtle and the dove – as our own. Our mission is to craft unique garments that transcend time and tradition. We do so by repurposing and up-cycling materials, including vintage blankets, tapestries, embroidered tablecloths, doilies, and tea towels. We also curate a treasure trove of unused vintage fabrics, trims, and ribbons.

Our commitment to sustainability means that every piece we create is as distinctive as it is ethically made, embracing the slow fashion movement. Some of our materials have a rich history, crafted by skilled artisans in a time when traditional crafts flourished. We breathe new life into these treasures, inviting you to revel in their unique charm.

But our journey doesn't end there. Myrtle & Dove also offers original embroidery designs, patterns, and kits, empowering you to weave your own stories through intricate stitches.

At Myrtle & Dove, every product is a labour of love, meticulously crafted with care. Join us in celebrating the artistry of the past, the beauty of the present, and the stories that connect us all.
