Luna Niños playfully vibrant TRI-moss knit blankets are BACK in stock.
Blending 27 different yarn colours is not easy – as our wonderful NEW knitters can attest to – but with careful planning & deliberation we MATCH.
… contact us for STOCKISTS … we LOVE for you to support your local retailers … or go to our online SHOP if you are out of town.
Living the lush life in our NEW knit studio in Kew – with welcoming Winter flora and a leafy green outlook – bringing a fresh dynamic to our design and production process. … but how we loved those grungy back streets of Richmond … yet how we embrace the serenity and charm of Kew.
With an abundance of natural light and peaceful green surroundings, we are pretty sure we don’t actually miss the chaos, noise, parking problems and dreadful lighting of our previous beloved DUNGEON.
But our memory’s are fond – and a part of Luna history lives forever in Cremorne.
Embrace change – it is good for you – it creates new challenges – and then brings fresh, sustainable growth and evolution.
The Luna team rallied to exhibit new knitwear ranges at Life InStyle Melbourne 2015 in August – under the beautiful dome at The Exhibition Buildings in Carlton.
Seeing all the beautiful products and amazing designers, friends and fellow exhibitors is always a joy. And nice to see Amelia Coote-Harris back at the helm.

‘Have you seen the old signs, in the back streets of Richmond, more forgotten hero’s, for a world that doesn’t care’.
Sadly old signs and industry icons are all we have left these days, with local manufacture diminishing by the minute…second even!
But this Ragtrade industry icon is getting a glorious makeover thanks to Glasshaus Nursery.
Back in the old Ragtrade days – Richmond Laundry was our weekly go to for denim and wovens, and Vince del Brocco was the MASTER of washing and finishing knitted textiles. But sadly these businesses have been forced to close…and we have lost these great characters…the heart and soul of our industry…and with them the skills and expertise.
But our beloved local industry lives on – in signs, in icons, in memory and still in our passion and determination to create and produce knitwear and fashion locally.
‘Long Live Melbourne Manufacture’
After 14 years – Luna is leaving Richmond – the grunge – the heart of knitwear manufacture Melbourne.
When we first arrived in 2001, the Slade Knitwear sign was still lit up and Cremorne was this unknown nook of creativity and mystery. So many amazing urban makers, young architects, artists, film makers, graphic designers … motor mechanics, printers, KNITWEAR manufacturers, quirky cafe’s, the Cherry Tree Hotel, some tree’s and great neighbours. From our balcony we had superb views to the City, the Botanical Gardens, across the river to South Yarra, the Nylex Sign, Slade Knitwear, the asbestos, the concrete and the urban skyline – bats and all.
So as the high rise takes over – the Queen of Cremorne departs.
My name is Maddie, for my year 10 school work experience I was with Luna Gallery for one week. I was able to attend a presentation at AJAR, a furniture design shop in Collingwood to present the latest range of Luna Home knitted blankets and bedding. Here are some photo’s with Georgie, the design assistant and I.
Primed & excited to be exhibiting at DEN fair next week in Melbourne alongside so many noble brands & design entities.
