If you’re yet to discover the amazement that is Melbourne brand Stix and Flora, consider this post your wake up call. I’ve been smitten with the handcrafted creations from the duo behind this business for quite some time, and I’m delighted to have them on the blog today – and equally excited to give you the chance to win some of their stellar designs for your own home. Read on for more!
The Stix and Flora Handmade Wall Vase Range
Based out of the Mornington Peninsula, Stix and Flora is a family affair. The ladies behind the brands are a mother and daughter team (Jules and Em, respectively), who create everything in their online store by hand. They’ve been doing it since the business took off back in 2014, and have already outgrown the kitchen table they used to design and construct at. Now in their own dedicated work studio at the back of their house, the clever creatives tell me that the business started by chance.
“Emily wanted a few pot plant pouches for her home, so we made some and found all our friends and relatives wanted & liked them also,” Jules tells me. “Within weeks after adding a picture to social media, we had so many enquiries from homeware stores wanting to stock our pouches – and so our business began!”.
From fabric pouches to floral flasks, and even some beautiful native wood vessels, the product range from Stix and Flora is a varied one, but one that’s infused with heart and soul. The products you see in this post are by far my favourites, and Jules tells me that they’re a winner with customers, too.
“Our favourite product is our new Teardrop wood vase, they are our best sellers [and] we have been amazed by the response,” Jules says. “It is so lovely knowing people love and want our new product in their homes and work space. It is very rewarding for us when people send us a picture”.
The ladies tell me that they’re in the midst of creating and launching a new wood product, which is just one of the excitement developments in the Stix and Flora journey. There have been others along the way, of course, with Jules calling on their first Life Instyle event last year, as a true highlight.
“We went with an open mind not knowing whether buyers would like our products. We were overwhelmed with the response, gaining over 70 new stockists Australia wide and several new customers from New Zealand & Tasmania”.
