The inspiration for Eclectopia at its heart, is an appreciation for beautiful handmade gifts which I have had since my late teenage years, becoming a fan of small art galleries, where I became enchanted with the art form of ceramics.
Eclectopia was born into the burgeoning artisan markets scene of the Blue Mountains, back in 2011. An organic series of opportunities presented themselves in 2016, enabling me to open a store in Taralga.
My passion is for others to see that the beauty of handmade items made with integrity, will have more longevity to its buyer giving thought to their purchase with sustainability in mind.
In some small way, discouraging the exponential consumerism of mass produced cheap gifts - which largely end up being discarded in landfill, is my little contribution to Mother Earth.
Since June 2021, Eclectopia now resides within the gorgeous heritage retail experience which is Ensemble & Co. A unique environment, showcasing a collective of 20 small businesses.
Lyn Martin joined Eclectopia in 2015, managing accounts and instore design.
