Stunning nature, the iconic Aussie animals, heaps of sunlight...ever since arriving in Australia we were instantly smitten!
Cockatoo Collection was born to celebrate all things Australian in a range of fresh and functional homeware and gifts. Whether it is a tea towel or a tray, our designs have been inspired by our love for our surroundings and the things that make Australia such a lucky place to live.
Born close to the arctic circle in northern Finland I relocated to Melbourne with my young family in 2011. After luck (and our children!) brought me together with Helena, also from Finland, we soon became friends and realised we both share a love for our adopted country and an appreciation of fresh and simple Scandinavian designs. Cockatoo Collection was born with the aim to offer you original and beautifully designed homeware and gifts - with a little bit of Scandi and a whole lot of Australiana!
Most of our pieces have been designed by Helena and handmade by Katarina in Melbourne. And as we love keeping things Australian we use Melbourne eco-friendly printers and suppliers for our textiles.
We also love supporting other talented Australian designers, illustrators, creators and makers, which is why you can find a curated selection of modern Australiana here at Cockatoo Collection.
We only choose genuinely different finds by small Australian businesses - so you won't find these products just everywhere.
Many thanks for supporting independent Australian design and small businesses.
We hope you like what you see!
Katarina and Helena
