CLOTH & CO.
Cloth & Co. was another brand that caught our eye. Designing ethical, sustainable and luxury items of clothing, Cloth & Co. is on a journey to help alleviate poverty through the utilization of traditional artisan’s skills, as well as providing capacity and skills development to those in need.

From beautifully packaged gifts, soaps, candles, textile & leather accessories, rugs and stationery, the Dan300 Group have got you covered.
It all started back in 1999 when the Founder, Dani Rosen, had a range of handmade cards stuck together on the apartment floor, that brought together design, colour, pattern and passion for business. Now, Dan300 is one of the most well-known names in Australian design, with one being able to recognize it immediately for it's distinguishable palette and pattern. Lending itself to many mediums, shapes, and textures, Dan300 continues to innovate across the retail and wholesale field, constantly moving and changing with current trends but managing to stay true to its essence and familiar form and palette.

ME AND AMBER
Wasn’t it such a beautiful feeling when you and your friend would sit and talk about your dreams? How you were both going to live together, or how you would both start your own business together and conquer the world?
Well, this all came true for best friend duo, Karen, and Amber. After graduating from Design at UTS in 2004, the best friends established Me & Amber, creating simple and beautiful screen-printed products that help people make meaningful connections within the digital age.
With a passion for timeless designs and typography, the pair creates unique and beautiful cards, notebooks, t-shirts and more, for you to share with people you love.

How beautiful is the thought that an image captured within a moment of time, can tell such a powerful and moving story?
This is exactly what Maegan Brown does.
Based in Melbourne, Maegan has dedicated her time and talent to photography, working across commercial and fine art projects with a portfolio spanning landscapes, lifestyle, still life and interiors. With an urge to create powerful and emotive imagery, Maegan tells a story and captures a moment or mood with her photography skills. Her personal fine art presents remote and other-worldly landscapes through minimal compositions which are often abstract and nondescript. Experimenting with scale, depth, and shape, Maegan’s work emulates a feeling of calm, stillness and solitary.
