Atley.co acknowledges and pays respect to the past, present and future traditional custodians and elders of this nation and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of aboriginal and torres strait islander peoples.
Atley.co is a community of conscious curation and connection.
We make unique, personalised pieces for the home with raw and natural materials, in partnership with talented local makers and their honed artforms.
Atley.co is fundamentally a celebration of quality craftsmanship and Australian-made. We are independent, socially responsible and committed to producing all of our products in Melbourne.
Our mission? To create timeless, sustainably-made pieces that will tether generations together through storytelling and nostalgia in years to come.
Founded by partners Lisa and Terry, Atley.co is an ode to anyone with a love for quality craftsmanship and creations with character.
A trove of distinct handmade treasures from an intimate selection of small-scale Australian designers, and makers. Atley.co is a place to come for creations wrought with history, heart and soul.
The origins of Atley.co date back to European travels. Lisa and Terry relished the privilege of connecting with skilled makers in quaint but culturally-rich towns who used centuries-old techniques to make unrivalled objects of desire.
“It was like a fire within our hearts started to burn,” says Lisa of the deeply nostalgic time.
Upon their return, late nights were spent reminiscing tales of foreign artistry and the togetherness of small-town creators. The duo dreamt of honouring this rich tapestry of local design in Australia, as it’s honoured overseas.
In 2017, they made the decision to go all in. Atley.co manifested, and with it grew a network of local makers designing (and consciously manufacturing) a collection of original handcrafted heirloom pieces for the home.
There was no brief per se, just that these items of luxury and creativity had to be forever, not fleeting. Our products are an extension of the community, all made to exist in the home from now to generations in the future. They simply must stand the test of time, from FSC and PEFC certified timber furniture to luxury leather homewares and accessories.
There’s a certain magic in everyday objects and their functionality, something especially learned through enforced time at home. To have, to hold and to hand down, we connect Australians with products of consideration and beauty.
Atley.co isn’t trying to be something it is not. These objects are grounded in quality, but retain accessibility and integrity, made for everyone and anyone to enjoy. From leather craftsmen with half-centuries of experience to handmade ceramics, every object here represents a labour of love.
The pieces we design, make and deliver to your homes are a testament to the collaboration and expertise of their makers, and it’s an honour to bridge the gap between these individuals through our work. We all have a role to play. The businesses we support and the choices we make all cast a vote for the future, however you hope to see it. Supporting small business and Australian-made initiatives is far more than a fleeting, aesthetics-driven transaction.
When you choose Atley.co, you’re choosing to support Australia’s sacred manufacturing and design industry. And that has to be the greatest investment piece of them all.
