Koskela supports Aboriginal and tribal art
Koskela is committed to using their home décor design and production skills to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and craftspeople. Artists at Indigenous-owned art centers and the creative team at Koskela collaborate to create new contemporary design products and concepts. This ensures that Indigenous artisans have an income independent from the government to continue to create what they love and live the lives they are meant to live.
Since 2017, Koskela has committed an additional 1% of all sales to go towards the projects with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander owned Art Centers. This 1% is derived from the sale of other Koskela items such as furniture, lifestyle design, and corporate projects. To date, Koskela has raised over $550,000 in funds.
Koskela works with artists through their Art Centers and are members of the Indigenous Art Code which is a system to preserve and promote ethical trading in Indigenous art.
Koskela designs for more than just your home
Given that creative nature is the driving force behind Koskela and its impeccable furniture designs, they now offer much more than home furnishings. Their lifestyle line offers products from clothing and accessories to leisure items like books, games and puzzles.
One of the most fun items in this lifestyle collection is the Learn to Weave kit by Tjanpi Desert Weavers. It includes everything you'll need to get started weaving your own basket, an awesome gift idea for the crafter in you life. Tjanpi Desert Weavers is a social enterprise of the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Women’s Council created to enable women in remote central deserts to earn their own income from creating art. Tjanpi represents more than 400 Aboriginal women artists from 26 remote communities on the NPY lands.
Koskela also offers a line of beauty, grooming, and skincare items. They offer beauty lines like Maryse, a skincare line made organically and naturally, and Addition Studio which offers products made locally in Byron Bay.
