Established in 2013, Mount Vic and Me® is the brainchild of local designer Kara Cooper who resides in the historic village of Mount Victoria high up in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, Australia.
The quirky, unique range of tea towels, socks, greeting cards, mugs, cushions, wallpaper and fabrics are created in a fabulous 100 year old cafe on the highway in Mt Vic. The studio shop is a mash of colour, textures, retro fun and nostalgia.
The bold printed art tea towels, greeting cards and cushions have the tick of approval by the Australian Made campaign. It’s a delight to see people laugh at the Aussie Political tea towels and you can also find Kara’s range of Australiana designs across upholstered retro chairs, cushions and linens.
Mount Vic and Me moved into the current premises of the old Mountain Top Cafe in mid-2019 after being housed right next door sharing a tiny shop space next door. Taking that initial plunge on the small shop was terrifying, but by around three months into the space, it was clear that it wasn’t big enough! Our large studio shop is now broken up into a beautiful working space and a retail/shop space which houses many other fab brands that work well with Mount Vic and Me product lines.
A ‘working studio’…
With Kara designing the range, hand-packaging the products, distributing across Australia and internationally, keeps us pretty busy and a good work/life balance is important. That’s why the studio shop is not always open. It’s a good chance to get out and get inspired, a bushwalk, hang out with the kids, weeding the veggie patch and tending to the chooks.
