Tamara Design Co is an unabashedly bold pattern design and textiles studio in Canberra, Australia.
The spark for Tamara’s obsession began while studying fashion design at Sydney’s Whitehouse school back in the late 1990s, here Tamara was introduced to the wallpaper designs of William Morris and Florence Broadhurst, she quickly become enamoured by their use of intricate patterns and the consummate skill that was evident in their works.
Starting from a slow burn Tamara went on to study textile design and screen printing at RMIT, honing the skills she had developed during her earlier studies she went on to produce some truly innovative and remarkable designs. Her talent for pattern design was noted by several important figures in the Melbourne scene, resulting in Tamara being awarded an internship with UK’s Timorous Beasties upon her graduation in 2010.
Her experience with Timorous Beasties further fueled her obsession, and having decided that that was what she wanted to do with the rest of her life Tamara returned to Melbourne and founded Funky Wombat Textiles in 2011. In 2016 Funky Wombat Textiles was rebranded to Tamara Design Co.
