All designs are hand-drawn by us and then set up as vector files.
These are sent off to our local laser cutter in Alexandria.
We then hand-paint the laser cut bamboo pieces using non-toxic water-based acrylic paints and POSCA markers.
We then spray them with a clear coat of varnish to protect the design.
We then assemble the earrings by hand, attaching the hypoallergenic surgical steel hooks, posts or hoops.
Bambooyah was launched in September 2019 and is run by sisters Nikki and Megan.
We are Sydney-based makers who are passionate about sustainability and art & design.
We do everything as a team of just the two of us! From designing, painting, gluing, accounting, managing the website, managing Etsy, responding to emails, running social media accounts, and packing orders for our beautiful customers ♡
We've both always had a love for everything hands-on and creative.
We knew we wanted to do something meaningful to affect the world positively.
This project is a direct reflection of our love for the earth and our love for creating.
We have chosen to use sustainably sourced bamboo as our primary material, so we can have peace of mind knowing it can eventually go back to the earth.
As well as this, we regularly donate a percentage of proceeds to charity, from selected products, to give back to the community.
