Sultry Shades was established in a corner of my clothing studio in Fitzroy in 2009/10. Our decision to go bush forced the closure of the Fitzroy studio and we arrived in Mansfield late 2010. It was a rough start, we had to put in a dam and roads, weather proof the shack, build the shed, studio and house. We are entirely off grid, well insulated and double glazed and loving it!! Being free of building duties I gleefully re-connected with my passion and am ready to re-launch Sultry Shades on the unsuspecting public..
