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!

Ikea Competition

I was wandering around Ikea the other day, as you do, collecting random bits and bobs and saw this 'Sew Me What You Got' competition.

Using Ikea textiles, sew us what you can create with them!
Home furnishings, clothing, toys and accessories are just a few ideas that come to mind...what can you create?

Click on the above image for more details, but they are due August 12 2010 and you could win a $1500 Ikea gift card.

Now I can't sew (actually I can sew on a button and have been taught to darn socks...) but thought that the ultra creatives that read this blog (that's you!) might be up for winning some money.
Have Fun & Good Luck :)
