55 Parrots were born from a love of travel, inspired by the unique work of artisans around the world. Maxine Walker, the creator and vision behind the brand shares her passion for artisan products that all tell an individual story. The craftsmen culture, their families, and their art are what is essential to Maxine Walker, who from her respect to this artistry, sparked her the desire to establish 55 parrots in her hometown of Wollongong.
55 Parrots range has been carefully curated to provide customers with quality products that are also beautifully handcrafted. We work closely with our artisan makers to ensure designs are made to a high standard while remaining authentic and distinct in design.
Founder, Maxine talks about her vision behind the brand, ‘From this journey, I had a strong desire to bring artisan-made furniture, homewares pieces, and antique items to my hometown of Wollongong with 55 parrots opening their first store in Fairy Meadow in 2013. With the overwhelming success of this store, we have expanded on our range to support sustainable living in a homewares and lifestyle range. Every collection is sourced from artisans worldwide and includes a unique range of handmade products crafted with a strong commitment to design, supporting fair trade and a greener world’.
