Our Story

Thank you for your continued support over the last 40+ years. We have loved meeting our loyal customers at the Queen Victoria Market who travelled from interstate, overseas, regional Victoria and local Melbournians too! We have now decided to wind down Catcher coats and have ceased trading at the QVM however, we have limited stock of our Australian made Wool/Cashmere blend coats and Jackets available through our website. Please order/email us with any enquiries and we can check availability.

Keep Warm – Catcher Coats


  • Australian Made
  • Italian Wool
  • Family Owned and Operated for over 40+ years

Established in 1975, Catcher Coats is a third generation family owned and operated business.

For 40+ years, Sally and David Kiper have manufactured Australian Made, Italian wool and cashmere coats.

Catcher Coats sell directly from their iconic Queen Victoria Market stall and previously their Chapel Street boutique and are one of the very few remaining manufacturers of wool blend garments in Australia.

To meet demand and after repeated requests from our regular interstate and international customers, our online store, www.catchercoats.com was launched in March 2015.
