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!

Style and Focus blog

Style and Focus is an exciting new blog that is Perth based. It concentrates on creatives that have taken their style and designs to the next level. “We have called ourselves a ‘blogazine'!”, says Jody, as we show original images and writing, much like the magazines that we freelance for. The articles will continue to grow in their focus and style to bring together all aspects of what makes beautiful homes.

The blog is a collaboration between photographer, Jody D’Arcy and stylist, Jo Carmichael who have an eye for beautiful things and want to source and share with their readers some serious eye candy. Their backgrounds include work for publications such as Inside Out, Home Beautiful, House & Garden, Country Style and Scoop magazine. From all their combined experience, they want to showcase people they have come across (all proudly sandgroper talent), beautiful things they have discovered, style and design hints, tips and forecasts and project it all onto one special blog to share. They focus mainly on the home and garden and all its trimmings, discovering the people behind the design and things they love. 

Jo and Jody specialise in creating beautiful and thoughtful styled images for websites, advertising and online stores. Their clients range from architects such as KADA, online stores like Bowerhouse and builders such as National Estate Builders. If you are stumped on how to showcase your products and style, Jo and Jody can round it up, story board, create sets and photograph it for you for all your business needs.

Their vision is to connect, grow and support Perth burgeoning talent base, fostering all that is original and beautiful for example, Made on the Left stallholder, Fluid Ink
