Tell us about your business:
Bindle is a boutique gift business that blends sustainability with style. Bindle engages local artisans to produce Australian, hand-made, tailored gift packages that incorporate food, wine and design. There are Bindles for every occasion and every part of the creation is Australian – the products within the Bindles; the boxes that contain them; the hand that wrapped them.
Why did you start your business?
I always aspired to having her own business.
I faced an ever recurring small nightmare of trying to find inspired gifts for friends and family for milestone occasions. After seeing local produce becoming less and less a feature in gift purchases, I spied a niche in the market. It was due to the urge to air my creative impulses and the dream to build something of my own that Bindle transpired.
Following what verged obsessive research and visits to local markets and boutique food stores. Merging design, and a passion for Australian-made local products, Bindle was born.
