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 shared a love for our adopted country and an appreciation of fresh and simple Scandinavian designs. Cockatoo Collection was born just before Christmas in 2015 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!
All our pieces have been designed by Helena in Melbourne and we then work together with suppliers in Australia and Asia to make our product dreams to reality. We also have a new range of canvas bags and cushions printed and handmade right here in Melbourne.
We 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 have only chosen 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
