Based in Melbourne, Elk produces stylishly simple contemporary men’s accessories in raw leather, natural jute, and vegetable-tanned leather.

Simplicity and humble luxury is the mantra of Secret River,
a homewares specialist that utilises ethically sourced woven cloths to create long lasting, high quality pieces.

Knitwear artisan Wendy Voon Knits is renowned for her
carefully crafted and beautifully detailed garments and
accessories. Visitors are welcomed to interact with Voon
and watch as she develops her next collection in her
studio, which will be set up each Saturday in situ in her
pop-up gallery space.

Building on an extensive background in screen-printing and printmaking, Adventure Pants delivers hand printed, durable and original leggings made from locally sourced natural
fabrics and inks.

Melbourne-based brand Luna Gallery specialises in textural knitwear garments and homewares, embracing feel, function, style and sustainability to create quality knits from natural yarn.

Power to Make has a unique take on furniture and accessory production, exploring the craft through digital technology. The result is highly customisable and contemporary furniture that can be reimagined by the user, in keeping with the fast pace of 21st century living.

Zsofi Samu integrates coiling and the ancient looming technique “double weaving” to create three dimensional textile sculptures inspired by the Tasmanian wilderness. Nature is a reimagined as art with Samu’s one of a kind pieces, which can be reshaped and re-installed in different ways to reflect the changeability of nature.

Wearable art is the focus of Elenii’s men and women’s accessory line. Individually handcrafted knitwear jewellery makes for a collection of show-stealing statement pieces.
