OUR mission statement

MADE ON THE LEFT was founded in 2008 by independent designers to support Western Australian creative talent. We hold bi-annual handmade craft markets to showcase local designers.

Being on the left hand side of Australia no longer

means you'll be at a disadvantage.

Our aim is to support all creative designers and events showcasing independent labels. MOTL is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organisation. You may wonder why we promote other markets besides MOTL; it’s because it’s not about us, its about you; the buyers and sellers of indie wares. Here at the blog, you’ll discover up to date information about our latest market, the low-down on some of Perth’s emerging talents, other opportunities for artists and designers and a little bit of fun stuff too. It’s all right here… welcome!

Mustard Menagerie

Osier here, back for another guest blogging extravaganza!

Ok, so a few days ago I promised a look at a hot trend in handmade was soon to come. I'll have you know I dont dissapoint... heres a beautiful picture from The Sartorialist blog to get your heart racing...

Possibly the greatest colour combo I have ever seen. Grey, maroon, creamy white, and the trend-setter colour we'll be taking a squiz at today, Mustard Yellow.

Heres some great etsy finds, using the keyword 'mustard', with both handmade and vintage stirred in (I cant resist mustard AND vintage, its just too much!)

And of course, this would not be a Made On The Left blog post without featuring the mustardy goodness of WA etsy sellers!
