Multidisciplinary design practice, specializing in jewellery and clothing
Business owners Barbara and Ben started their business in their garage with a small range of ceramics and jewellery manufactured in Melbourne that they traded at local markets. Since migrating into studio space at Melbourne Innovation Centre, the business has grown considerably and they’ve upsized to larger studio space on site. The collection has grown to include womenswear and accessories.
Klei also expanded their reach by taking part in Darebin Council’s program called Active Spaces. They ended up with a six-month lease for a pop-up shop, and following the trial, the property owner offered a five-year lease. Knowing that retail worked for their businesses, they agreed.
