Foley Street is located in the heart of Darlo and is home to five creative businesses working across art, design, fashion, jewellery and home wares on the newly paved laneway. Running between Oxford & Burton Streets off Crown this is inner city Sydney's latest craft & design shopping destination.
Run by self-taught shoemaker Marina Roorda, Bermuda Black offers a bespoke shoe design service, along with a range of off-the-shelf shoe and clothing designs. Bermuda Black’s Foley Street retail space is combined with an open studio and workshop where customers can watch Marina at work and see her suite of shoemaker’s tools.
