The name Betty Jo is taken from a popular version of Elisabeth and a shortened version of Jones.
It also references the character from the 60's sitcom Petticoat Junction, as well as honouring all the fabulous Bettys I've met volunteering at opshops over the years!
Betty Jo Designs was started in 2005 and now can be found in dozens of stockists around Australia and New Zealand.
Betty Jo Designs is hand made by Liz in her studio/ retail space in Brunswick with predominately recycled and repurposed materials. All pieces are 100% Australian made, sweatshop free (on hot days there's only a little bit of her own sweat involved in the production!)
Each piece purchased from Betty Jo Designs is guaranteed to be totally unique. You won't see another one exactly the same in the whole world.
There is a repair or replace policy on all purchases, so don't hesitate to contact Liz if you need this service.
