Q 1: What is Bobs Buckets?
A: Bobs Buckets is a new unique tie dye fashion start-up located in Sydney. We specialise in providing a range of high quality, hand painted tie dye items including bucket hats, beanies, socks, hair ties, tees, tote bags, jumpers and bandannas.
Q 2: How did you come up with the idea for Bobs Buckets?
A: Travelling around the US going to music festivals I found a lot of awesome tie dye stalls, one of them had bucket hats and I instantly bought one and wore it for the rest of my trip. People loved it but the only problem was that the colours ran and covered me in a liquid rainbow whenever it rained. I decided one day that I could make and sell them better than a lot of other stores so I ordered plain bucket hats and used colourfast dyes that wouldn’t run. Bobs Buckets have been expanding ever since.
Q 3: What makes Bobs Buckets different to other tie dye?
A: I personally hand paint every piece using brushes compared to the ordinary method of spraying dye onto fabric using bottles of paint. This enables us to create more original designs and doesn’t limit us to standard tie dye patterns.
This makes every Bobs Bucket item individual. Not only unique but also personalised too. Any member of the family can rock one from Grandpa’s favourite fishing hat to your favourite wiggling Labrador!
We also use all natural, UV activated paints sourced from http://www.tiedye.com.au/ in Byron Bay that are super colourfast. These paints ensure that all of our items are as colourful as possible and are guaranteed not to run!
We’re always expanding our range to eventually enable our customers to buy entire tie dye wardrobes! We’re open to suggestions too that might score you a free piece of gear! We often customise items to any requests, including colour, design and style. We’ve even spray painted designs over the top of our tie dye creations for added effect.
Q 4: How have you been getting the word out about your unique products?
A: Selling online at www.bobsbuckets.com.au as well as at local Sydney markets like Glebe, Rouse Hill Boutique Markets and the Rock n Roll and Alternative markets as well as live music events. We have some festivals lined up for later this year and other surprise events, so stay tuned via our Facebook page.
A lot of our Marketing and PR involves self promotion, wearing our clothing out to music events, clubs and parties and giving out promotional freebies, stickers and hair ties. We love going out and partying and people always seem to be impressed with the bright colours and unique looks! It makes promotions more enjoyable when half of our work involves having fun and meeting new people! Reaching out to social influencers and Instagrammers has been an important turning point for getting the word out to a wider audience too. Often these are people we meet out too and it helps when the people promoting you’re brand are genuinely excited about what you’re doing. We’re really starting to see the effects this is having on building our own social following and media presence.
Live music events have also helped us to get some amazing exposure and awesome memories with some of our favourite DJ’s and producers getting in on some Bobs Buckets action. Like legends Dub FX and Giorgio Moroder, both rocking their Bobs Buckets hats!
Q 5: What does the future hold for Bobs Buckets?
A: We plan to over run the galaxy with tie dye and awesome new gear step by step. Adding tie dye leggings, yoga pants and knee high socks to the range, as well as some amazing printed psychedelic buckets available very soon. At the moment we’re booking market stalls for smaller music events, exclusive parties and locking in as many opportunities to spread the word as we can. Hopefully expanding to festivals like Splendour and Blues fest in the next year or two. As well as continuing our involvement with local university groups and events. Recently we gave a big bundle of rainbows to SubSki Ski club to give away as prizes on their annual New Zealand trip during the winter uni holidays. We’re always looking for new events and opportunities to help expand our brand and improve our promotions. If anyone is interested feel free to shoot us an email at email@example.com.

Hope to see you on the dancefloor!
