WHOLESALE CONNECTING DESIGNERS & RETAILERS

www.handmadewholesale.com.au

Handmade Wholesale enables you to build a catalogue of your products, which are then viewable by retailers. Handmade Wholesale is a platform to facilitate business relationships; retailers will contact you directly to open a dialogue with you about your product/s. The Handmade Wholesale platform has been created with the Designer front of mind. We have attempted to keep the site details/colours as minimal as possible so as to not detract from your products, and to help keep the site as ‘clean’ as possible. We encourage that you tell your story through the use of your profile page, as well as telling the story of your products on their individual product page. The designer catalogue has the ability to take on your branding through the use of it’s banner which stretches the width of the site. You are also able to state your Terms and Conditions, Payment Policies and options, policies regarding lead times as well as return policies, to ensure that your brands requirements are communicated upfront to your potential clients (retailers). Retailers have the option of signing up to our weekly ‘new items’ emails which delivers fresh products direct into your inboxes. We also offer a tri-annual print catalogue featuring every single one of our designers. This is absolutly free of charge to retailers (shop owners) around Australia.


Gloriousmess! by Missy Messy is a collection of glorious stationery and whimsical art personally, and proudly handmade by Missy Messy (also known as Amy) in Sydney, Australia. All Gloriousmess! products have been carefully selected from the bazillion ideas whizzing around Missy Messy’s head. All our products carrying the Gloriousmess! label must be all the following - environmentally-friendly, functional, aesthetically pleasing, and bring a smile to whoever sees it. Often, you will find a bit of quirky humor or a whimsical feel to Gloriousmess! products. The CurlieQ™ series are inspired by the childhood playtime adventures of Missy Messy, whilst the misadventures of Tragedy Bear™ are inspired by Missy Messy’s real-life observations of the secret life of her stuffed animal menagerie. As much as possible, Missy Messy makes her items recyclable, biodegradable, or both. Some of the packaging are reusable as bits of stationery, prolonging their life before hitting the recycling pile. Missy Messy adores her glitter and sparkles, so she sneaks a few touches in while keeping a wide berth from materials that harm the environment such as metallic paint and foils, plastics and laminated products for now. Only the best materials are meticulously sourced from Australia, USA, UK, Europe, Taiwan and Japan to make each product, with special attention paid to the source’s eco-friendly properties and sustainability. The Gloriousmess! mission is to conquer the world with happiness, one smile at a time. Won’t you come join our crusade? :)of Maison Blanche

Frosted Candy was whipped up in Melbourne, Australia in 2012. Since the beginning we have toiled to bring you a range of resin bangles that are fun, playful, eye catching and so beautiful you want to eat them. Every aspect of our bangles are handmade and hand-crafted in our Melbourne studio. Our designs are 100% unique, made from moulds which I have created during many hours of whipping, stirring and boiling. You won’t be able to find these in any other jeweller, or candy shop, anywhere in the big wide world. Every bangle is poured by hand, shaped and sanded by hand, and polished by hand, to produce a gorgeous, eyecandylicious treat. As our bangles are handmade, each and every bangle is it’s own wonderfully special, delightful and unique individual, with slight colour and shape differences. Here at Frosted Candy Designs we believe it is these differences which make us all to be treasured, and it is the same with our creations.

Inspired by all things vintage, Dressed for Sunday captures this nostalgia with a beautiful range of men’s and women’s accessories, and celebrates the idea of dressing well. I’m Leah, the creative force behind Dressed for Sunday. I grew up among the lush, rolling vineyards of the Barossa Valley. Over the course of my adult life, I’ve moved back and forth between the Barossa and other places. Currently, I find myself back in the place I grew up. Both my mum and my grandmother were sewers. And while it was so uncool to wear homemade clothes as a child, I’ve come around to the idea! I learnt to sew properly at high school. In the years since, I’ve run up my fair share of miles on the sewing machine. Dressed for Sunday embraces and celebrates the idea of taking the time to dress, along with my love of vintage through materials, prints and textures.

Juwel evolved out of a love to design and create. Initially a jewellery based business, in 2009 I decided to go back to my sewing roots and begin designing handbags. After originally training at the London College of Fashion in Clothing Technology and then working in the industry, the transiton was a relatively smooth one and certainly one I am glad to have made. Now based in Queensland, I bring you a unique, high quality collection of stylish handbags made from luxury Italian leathers and top grade designer print cottons.

Anna Davern is one of Australia’s most respected contemporary jewellers. Her practice straddles the visual arts, jewellery and fashion. She gained her undergraduate degree in Jewellery and Object Design at Sydney College of the Arts and her postgraduate studies and subsequent Masters degree were completed at RMIT. Anna works from the Northcity4 studios in Brunswick, Melbourne. She exhibits regularly and has held three major solo exhibitions at Craft Victoria, Melbourne. About the Rocks range: “In my art practice, I have been working with images cut from old biscuit tins and tin trays. I wanted to find a way to determine what is printed rather than relying on finding the image I want or working with what images I have available. The technique of sublimation involves using heat to embed a printed image onto metal that has been coated with a plastic surface. It is a great technique to use as I can do it in my studio and I don’t have to employ industry, which would involve printing in the thousands rather than individual images. Everything from printing the image to cutting it out and cleaning it up is done by hand in my studio. I’ve used the technique to create oversized fake versions of traditional styles of jewellery. It’s kind of an homage to one of the initial tenets of contemporary jewellery which was to react against the use of precious materials. These works are also an alternative to the real thing at a time when the real thing may no longer be affordable.”

My name is Beck and I am the designer behind KolbeeRae. I’ve always been a little ‘crafty’. It started when I was around 10 and my mum bought me a friendship bracelet making kit. I probably would have easily made at least 1000 of them in my first week alone!! From there I tried my hand at a few different little projects that included everything from sewing my own pencil cases for school to making new outfits for my Barbies! KolbeeRae began with a dream and a passion for beautiful things. From humble beginnings to the pieces you see now, KolbeeRae is inspired by nature. From the smallest buds to the biggest blossoming flowers, a KolbeeRae piece will complete your outfit no matter what the occasion. My everyday range comprises of easy wear pieces such as wire headbands and chiffon hair clips. All quick and easy to add to your everyday outfit. The party range features chain headpieces and glamourous lace headbands to finish your party look. My festival pieces are where you will see my love of nature. Fun and ‘fresh’ floral crowns that will make any festival outfit pop! My specialty lies with the bridal range. You will see it also draws from my love of nature with the use of real touch roses. When creating bespoke pieces for your wedding I combine these beautiful roses with other mediums to create a truly unique piece that is sure to become a treasured heirloom and keepsake. I strive to provide beautiful handmade hair ‘pretties’! I wouldn’t say ‘accessories’ as a majority of my pieces are more statement than accessory. My only hope is that everyone who wears one of my pieces will feel like the most beautiful girl in the world!

Hello and welcome to Dichroic Creations. My name is Mandy and I live in Adelaide, South Australia. I am a mother of 3, their ages are 8, 16 and 18. I first started making Dichroic Pendants when my youngest was just a baby and have been addicted ever since. I have been featured in catalogues internationally every year for the last four years and was also featured in an Australian book called Handmade Living. About dichroic glass is pronounced dye-crow-ik, and the name comes from the Greek language for two colours—”di” means two and “chroic” means colour. NASA developed dichroic glass for use in satellite mirrors. It has a reflected and transmitted colour, so, as you look at it, the colours seem to change. This is why it is so difficult to truly capture it’s full beauty with a single photograph. The effect is stunning and dichroic glass jewellery is possibly the most wonderful fused glass you will ever see - so full of light and colour. Each Dichroic Creation is guaranteed to be a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art. No two are ever exactly the same. They are made of many layers of glass and fired at very high temperatures to achieve the amazing and stunning results you see. I make each one of my Dichroic Creations using only the highest quality genuine dichroic glass. They are absolutely stunning and sure to be noticed when you wear them!

Elk {Textiles & Home} was born from a love of creating - something new, something interesting, something quirky, something I could say was all by my own hand. I’ve always been an arty-crafty type. My home is speckled proudly with goodies that I put my mind, heart and time into. So I wanted to share that joy with the world. When my daughter was born in June 2013, it gave me the perfect opportunity to do just that - and here we are. Elk ‘opened its doors’ in February 2014, I had my first sale in early March and now I’m a Work-at-Home-Mum. At Elk {Textiles & Home} I create my own prints using block printing techniques, on 100% cotton. Each print is hand drawn onto the rubber medium and then carved out to reveal only the image that will be printed. High quality fabric ink is then used to transfer the image which is then heat set for durability. As a result of this process, each print is as unique as the last. Combine this with the use of designer fabrics and I’m able to come up with bright, fun and quirky ways to decorate your home. I’m always open to custom orders, so if there is a particular product you would love to see combined with one of my prints, just let me know! Elk {Textiles & Home} is located in Brisbane, Queensland and currently has a presence on Facebook (200 + followers) and Instagram (77 followers) as well as an online store at etsy. com and madeit.com.au. To place an order or to make an enquiry, contact me via email at elktextilesandhome@gmail.com Thanks for stopping by!

Since having my daughter nearly four years ago, I was always on the lookout for accessories to go with her gorgeous wardrobe and found it hard to find that perfect little something that would make an outfit complete. That is, until I discovered Embellish’d! I instantly fell in love and when the business was for sale, I knew it was something I would LOVE to do and have been designing for over a year now. I am currently stocked in around 35 stores around Australia and several stores internationally. I am passionate about spreading the joy that I felt that comes from opening up a little parcel of Embellish’d goodies. I have always had a shopping addiction that only grew when I had my own daughter. Now I have the opportunity to keep shopping, but these days it is more for high quality materials to create my designs for others to enjoy. My range is stylish, classical and timeless, yet funky and colourful at the same time. The range is ever expanding to include a gorgeous line up of products in a rainbow of colours with something to match anything! I hope you enjoy my range at Embellish’d and I look forward to sharing many more creations with you in the future!

Gum Tree Lane is a contemporary range of essential oils that are distilled in Australia by our own plantations and distillations or plantations contracted through us, this means that we are unique in supplying essential oils straight from distilment through to the final product. Gum Tree Lane began its journey as a small range of fragrant and essential oils under the name of Nuts n Stuff in 2001 based on the south coast of NSW. This was successful in high end souvenir shops, woodworking galleries, and beautiful craft shops with a high quality handmade edge. We decided to rebrand in January 2014 and grow the range to only include essential oils as this was the area we had become passionate about and with aromatherapy and health and wellbeing becoming more in focus we understood that the retailer wanted a quality product that looked exciting and beautiful whilst meeting the customers brief of a ethical, good for you product that could really assist in their everyday. Gum Tree Lane fits this brief perfectly. Our bottles are beautifully boxed and with a collection series about to be launched we will have a beautiful contemporary product with a wonderful price point for you the retailer.

Gorgeous Jewellery by Carly, all started around five years ago while travelling around Australia. I received some handmade porcelain beads from my aunty in Adelaide and made myself a one-of-a-kind necklace. The compliments I received encouraged me to start a handmade business. From there my business has grown, I now take a lot of time to source different findings to create and design one-of-a-kind pieces. I also do lace dreamcatchers, baby headbands and fascinators. I have been attending local handmade boutique markets with great sales and following clients. Located in Northern NSW, I would love for my work to expand into other areas around Australia and the world.

I am a very driven, goal-oriented, working mum and inspired by my gorgeous toddler decided there was a need for fashionable and good quality nappy bags and baby/kids products. I absolutely love leather and its stylish look plus it is one of the most durable and flexible materials around. So, at Indi Leather Products, I am trying to design good quality and practical nappy bags and baby/kids leather products so that you can still look and feel fashionable at a good price. Indi Leather Nappy Bags are also designed with the idea in mind that you can continue on to use them as your own hand bag or overnight bag once you are done using it as a nappy bag! Whilst I do not have a background in design I have spent many years working in the business sector and as a manager, as I still am. I also have a Bachelor and Masters Degrees showing how much I love hard work and, I also have a keen eye for design and fashion, as does my husband. All of the products are original and designed by me & my husband, Alicia & Nick Moltzen. My hope is to grow my small business offering more and more quality leather baby/kids products that you will just love.

An inspired project of Australian jewellery designer Heidi Atchison, Jet Empire was born after nearly five years with renowned jewellery brand Jet & Ruby (which still continues to operate successfully). Using an often-unexpected mixture of semi-precious gems, pearls, leather, chain and more, Jet Empire adorns those wanting something out of the ordinary: something that gets noticed. Each Jet Empire piece is carefully and lovingly named after a song, an expression of Heidi’s love of music. In the same way that your taste in music says who you are, so too can a Jet Empire piece be an extension of you. Designed and hand-made in their studio in Floreat, Western Australia, Jet Empire is an eclectic collection of jewellery. Modern and vintage. Beautiful and edgy. Inspiring and fun. Don’t we all have two sides?

Jo’s Desktop is the trading name for the art and design work of Joanne Pearcy. Focusing on wildlife art and commissioned portraits I love to capture in an artwork something of the subject’s personality and hope to create products that will be treasured for years to come. I have a passion for the conservation of Australia’s wildlife and environment and hope that my art can bring a bit of awareness to these areas. I have been drawing in some form or another all my life. Coming from an artistic family has helped to instill a love and appreciation of all kinds of art, and since starting my own family have taken up the pencils and paints more seriously. Combining my background working in the fields of Graphic Art, Desktop Publishing and Printing, I produce greeting cards, calendars and prints featuring my wildlife art. My products are printed on 100% recycled paper and card and printed in Melbourne, where I oversee the entire process. Since 2012 my cards and calendars have been selling online, in local gift shops, including at Melbourne Zoo and Healesville Sanctuary, and at the occasional market. I live in the Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, and will happily arrange delivery of your order to anywhere in Australia or overseas.

Prices range from RRP $30 for cattle bone brooches and sterling silver earrings, and from RRP $75 - $180 for the range of bespoke necklaces. I live with my small family in the Southern Highlands of NSW and am looking for stockists further afield to grow my business.

Founded in 2012 Miss Emilie’s is the design dream of me, Emily Bowser. Back in 2012 I found myself in search of a perfect colourful geometric necklace to brighten up my dull, boring, all black Melbourne outfit. Uninspired by what I found I took matters into my own hands, painting some lovely 14 sided beads in blues, pinks and purples, creating the first ever Miss Emilie’s necklace. Once I started wearing that first necklace my friends and colleagues were asking me where it was from and if it came in any other colours, I love creating for others so this is where Miss Emilie’s was born.

Necklaces and earrings are made of wood, generally maple, oak or bamboo, and are intricately hand painted – receiving several coats of high quality acrylic paints, then varnished so they will stay vibrant wear after wear.

Established in 2005 and handmade in Melbourne, Miss Moi jewellery offers a unique range of stunning and vibrant necklaces and earrings.

A commercial printer by trade a printmaker by choice I specialise in original handcarved lino block prints with a bit of letterpress thrown in for good measure. All printed on antique printing machines with that unmistakeable bite into the paper that you can only get with letterpress printing. The work that I do is not created on a computer everything is hand drawn then hand carved out of lino then printed one impression at a time on my tabletop letterpress machine, I do not use polymer which limits me somewhat in regards to type but I love to use traditional methods in my printing, that involve handset type and hand carved designs and I think this is what make my work totally original to what other people are doing right now and it also meaning everything I make is an original work of art. I love what I do and love to share it with all my new & existing Customers & fans of relief printing.

Suz E Bee Candles was born in late 2009. I’m based in beautiful Port Stephens, NSW.

Suz E Bee Candles are perfect for your eco-friendly customers as well as those unable to burn fragranced candles due to allergies.

I started Toadstools & Tails 1 1/2 years ago after I had my two beautiful sons. Obviously, having babies introduces you to a whole new world of linen, clothing and accessories and I just loved some of the gorgeous items out there. I have always enjoyed doing embroidery and anything else that allowed me to explore my creative side. I adore things that are unique, beautiful and most importantly, eco-friendly so I decided to create my own designs. All products are made from Bamboo fabrics which hold the most amazing qualities. Bamboo is hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial, super absorbent and extremely breathable. Perfect for babies with eczema or allergies. It is a fantastic choice when considering the environment as Bamboo is a sustainable fabric that can be 100% biodegraded. The fabric is also amazingly soft, often compared to the feel of cashmere! I am located in Bayside Melbourne.

Warratahstree has been in business for 2 years. My hobby of art and craft have become my business. In my former professional life I was a Geologist/Computer Scientist. I have been creating art of many forms for over 20 years. It was my way of unwinding at the end of the day from a highly competitive career. I sell many of my products at local markets as well as facilitating Art parties at several locations in Melbourne, VIC.
