Borne from Identity!

A love & collection of ethnic textiles, clothing, accessories & handcrafts to share with you, from around the world!!! 

Come down Victoria Park market to meet with Ashley, the third generation of a family of explorers that embrace distinctive cultures by trying to preserve their traditional methods, which have been handed down from generation to generation. She goes in search for exquisite markets in remote villages, hand picking unique and vibrant pieces that tell a story and embrace the craftsmanship and details of ancestral designs.

Her current collection is mainly from Guatemala (her home country). The collection is sourced from various indigenous markets and villages throughout the country. The pieces are vibrantly stunning and made from repurposed vintage Mayan blouses called 'Huipiles', each having its own unique pattern that identifies the village of origin. 'Cortes' which are vintage Mayan foot loomed skirts are another textile used to make these beautiful pieces, along with genuine leather and other fabrics. They also work with Czech glass beads and stones to create beautiful jewellery and other accessories.

Her mission is to connect with skilled artisans in developing countries and bring their wondrous handcrafted, repurposed & fair trade products to a wider audience. This will help sustain their traditional methods, while adding colourful treasures to homes across the world.

Come for a wonder and open your eyes to see this visual explosion of bold colours and textures, to which you can allow your mind to run wild with incredible ideas & ways you can give your home and persona a new life.

There is something for everyone! Men, women, children, home & even your furry little pets...
