Penelope Shilling is a boutique label specialising in high-quality women’s shirts in natural fibres. The label was established in Sydney in 1995. A wide range of other garments and hand-crafted accessories is also available. The fabrics — cottons, linens, silks and wool — are all sourced in Australia, and all of the garments and accessories are hand-made in Australia by Penelope Shilling personally.
The label enjoys a niche following of loyal customers who value consistent quality of both product and service, classic styling, and distinctive fabrics that are not generally available in the stores. Penelope Shilling sells in Canberra at the Old Bus Depot Markets and at Handmade Canberra — also in Beechworth Victoria at Arcadia Gallery, and at the CMRI Christmas Fair in the Riverina.
Back-catalogue classics will remain available on this website at sale prices until stocks are sold out, while new ranges will be introduced gradually at the markets and online. You can receive automatic email-alerts for sales events and new products, by following this website — see the sign-up form bottom left, or the Follow button, bottom right of your browser window.
❝ I like to offer my customers a personal service that goes beyond selling at markets and on my website. That is why special orders are welcomed. ❞ — Penelope Shilling
