Sponsor Spotlight : inaluxe


I believe it was Joelle who first introduced me to the wonderful work of Australian based company inaluxe…in 2006 Kristina Sostarko started inaluxe out of passion for art and in May 2010 long-time friend, Jason Odd, joined inaluxe. Both are former art students and their philosophy for work and life is: 'make it beautiful, use the best materials possible, and be responsible and sustainable in production practice' … nice i think! Go here for shopping and here for seeing their inspirations
