About Us

Hello, I'm Ange Lavender, founder of Country Culture. 

The idea of Country Culture began after I moved from Sydney to the country. Missing the city galleries and boutiques, I found myself exploring quaint, local villages. Here I stumbled upon local makers, designers and producers, crafting quality goods in hidden workspaces.

Not only was their wide range of products incredible but I also fell in love with each artisan’s story and the passion that surrounded the making process. Astonishingly, only the locals knew where to find them.

So, Country Culture was born in 2012 with a commitment to champion Australian makers & designers online. Through this journey, I have met some amazing people who still inspire me daily. 

The business is growing and I now collaborate with specially selected artisans to deliver gifts to both design lovers and large corporate companies in Australia and abroad. 

We have recently launched our custom gift boxes, with a promise to have at least one hero Australian made artisan product in each. Our team near Sydney lovingly puts our gift boxes together, each hand wrapped with our map of Australia tissue paper. Every gift receives a stamp of approval from our mascot, Rusty the cattle dog (our actual cattle dog at home)!

We are proud to have roots both in the country and city. We hope you can enjoy some of the artisan gifts we handpick for you!
