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!

Support for the flood disaster

From My Heart Card donated by glasfaden

As part of the Australia Day event, we'd also like to help spread the word about the efforts on etsy to raise funds for those affected by the terrible flood disaster in Queensland.

The BrisStyle team is running a Handmade Ark Flood Appeal, with some or all proceeds from items sold to be donated to the Premier's Disaster Relief Fund. Browse items from the Ark Appeal here or find out more on the BrisStyle Blog.

The DUST team has set up a dedicated shop with all proceeds (minus etsy and PayPal fees) to be donated to the premier's flood appeal. Visit the shop here.

(please note- the flood fundraising appeals are separate from the Australia Day discount offer)
