Ripe Maternity Wear

Ripe Maternity Wear is an Australian owned company that was established in February 1996, by Kate Beaconsfield and Lisa Balakas, both then aged 27.

Kate was a physiotherapist running several busy clinics and Lisa was a trained Interior Designer. After having three children Lisa was frustrated by the lack of fashionable maternity wear that was available to pregnant women and thought it was time things changed. She had the design background but needed the business skills to start up and run a label. Kate was contemplating a career change so the timing was perfect. They teamed up, pooled resources and have never looked back.

Ripe is now stocked nationally throughout Australia in boutiques and selected department stores. The label is also available internationally through a growing and diverse market and now export to USA, Canada, China, UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Europe.
