The Tamsin Cooper label was born in Arrowtown in 2003 with just a small range of women’s silk wallets and coin purses, exquisitely hand embroidered in Vietnam. Since then the range has grown to include an extensive range of fashion accessories and coats which over the last few years have gained National media acclaim and are sold on-line and in over 100 stores nationwide.
The growth of the business and the need for a spacious workshop and boutique saw Tamsin relocate from Arrowtown with her husband and business partner Luke to the gorgeous historic building they work out of today, in the heart of Dunedin’s Creative Hub - Moray Place.
Tamsin Cooper’s collections are a regular fixture at the iconic iD Dunedin Fashion Week and this year was chosen as a personal favourite of Dan Awa from The New Zealand Herald. You will also see a lot more of Tamsin’s lovely face in the next few months as she co-hosts a new TVNZ series called “Hearts in Crafts” on TVNZ channel 7. The show highlights the best of New Zealand’s craftspeople and Tamsin herself creates pieces in the studio for you to make at home alongside her co-host Justin Newcombe.
Tamsin is particularly proud of the links her family- owned business have established with Vietnam. The talent and skill of these incredible craftspeople ensures that the quality and workmanship of any Tamsin Cooper product is the best in the world.
The Tamsin Cooper brand has forged a close relationship over the last decade with the manufacturers of her designs, who are a small family based company in Hanoi, Vietnam.
Tamsin Cooper designs combine western design aesthetics with time-honoured Vietnamese workmanship. All embroidered detail is exquisitely hand stitched onto fine silk fabrics, by artisans in traditional Vietnamese villages using techniques that have been passed down for generations.
The Tamsin Cooper Company reflects a truly global perspective. From designing the collection in Dunedin, renowned for its thriving fashion and arts community, to making regular trips to Vietnam, where the vibrant surroundings and rich heritage serves as infinite inspiration to her designs.
Trading with a conscience is essential to the way the company works, and Tamsin Cooper donates a percentage of her profits to a respected New Zealand/Vietnamese aid organisation.
