OUR FOUNDER, ANGELA LAVENDER
“I started Country Culture because I could see that there was this really rich and colourful source of talent in sometimes the most unexpected of places. The more I looked into it, the more I realized that we needed to bring this talent together, and showcase it to the whole world"
After moving from Sydney to live near Spring Ridge, on the Liverpool Plains in North Western NSW, I really missed the city galleries and boutiques and 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.
And so Country Culture was born in 2012, and nearly a decade on retains an unwavering commitment to champion Australian makers & designers online.
Country Culture collaborates with specially selected artisans to deliver gifts to both design lovers and large corporate companies in Australia and abroad.
We are passionate about supporting Australian small to medium businesses who share our passion for considered, quality goods.
Discover both emerging and established Australian artisans including leather makers, ceramicists, bakers, confectioners, candle makers, knitters and more, all in a carefully curated gift box.
Choose from our prepared gift boxes, individual gifts, or build your own box, presented in either our beautiful wrapping paper featuring the map of Australia, or one of our natural gift boxes and twine.
You'll notice our cattle dog, Rusty, graces our packaging as well, bringing a quintessential part of regional Australia from our house to yours.
A large part of our business is working with corporate companies to find the perfect gift solutions for their valued clients.
We can help you choose the right gift with provenance.
