TVM Startup Stall :: Sunstained

Prior to every market, TVM offers a Startup Stall package to one new business that catches our eye. It’s our opportunity to ‘give back’ and support the up and comers, the locals doing great things with heart, in the creative industry.  

This week, our Start-up Stall recipient is Lisa Hu and her label Sunstained. Read on to find out more and you can find Sunstained at TVM this Sunday 19 January.

Hi Lisa, congrats on receiving our TVM Standout Stall initiative for your first TVM this Sunday! We’re looking forward to meeting you. Tell us about how Sunstained was born?

Sustained came about from my passion for girl's empowerment, specifically in third world countries. I wanted to create a brand that supports our fellow superstars, no matter how far they might be from us. Educating girls has been proven to be one of the best ways to improve economies, fight climate change, and create a more fair and equal world.

I wanted a brand that was more than just fashion, but wearable art, if you will. The sun, the beach and the wonderful array of talented women that roam this planet inspire all of the designs!

Have you always been creative?

I have a background of illustration and graphic design, which I have only just begun to translate onto textiles. I also specialise in watercolour painting, and spend a lot of time painting dog ‘pawtraits’!

Is this business your full-time gig?

I also host watercolour workshops at The Craft Parlour on the GC and pick up freelance design projects on the side.

Tell us about your brand name, how did this come about?

I played around with the word “sun” for ages, because I knew that was the best reflection of my style, aesthetic and vision.

Then I happened to be listening to a song called “Lovestained” by Hope Tala. I knew straight away that Sunstained was perfect for me. I never looked back!

We have our eyes on your beautiful headscarves, tell us more about the products you offer?

Currently I sell silky headscarves illustrated by me, as well as enamel pins, and 100% cotton tote bags dyed using turmeric and hand printed with linoblocks.

I made some jumbo scrunchies from the offcuts of the headscarf fabric and also from thrifted fabric.

Soon I’d like to start designing clothing, specifically comfortable dresses made of sustainable materials such as recycled cotton, hemp, bamboo, and Tencel.

What inspires you creatively?

My biggest inspiration is definitely nature; I find that a walk on the beach always leaves me buzzing with new ideas, as well as travelling and seeing cool new places. I’m constantly inspired by the different colours and patterns different cultures use, and my Asian background has really helped me appreciate that.

Do you work from home, an office or creative workspace?

I work from home mostly, in a room decked out with prints and artworks from floor to ceiling!

Do you implement any sustainable practices within your company, if so tell us about this?

My products are packaged in 100% biodegradable compostable plastic, hand sewn on the GC, and printed locally using water based pigments and dyes with minimal waste.

Like TVM, I’m working toward zero waste and for this reason you’ll find pretty minimal packaging on my products. But it’s what’s inside that counts!

Favourite podcasts?

My favorite podcast has to be the Deliciously Ella podcast, which covers a range of interesting topics like nutrition, sleep, and psychology.

A close second would be Girlboss Radio by Sophia Amoruso; anything that includes women killing it in business has my attention!

Thanks so much Lisa!
You can shop Lisa’s products and say hello this Sunday 19 January at TVM, or visit the online shop, here.

Stall Profile :: Friday at Five

Growing up in the same small coastal town on the NSW South Coast, Andy and Eva fell in love 15 years ago and their life since then has included road-tripping…

Growing up in the same small coastal town on the NSW South Coast, Andy and Eva fell in love 15 years ago and their life since then has included road-tripping around Australia, working, buying a home and raising their three young daughters. Four years ago, amidst wrangling a 2 year old with another baby on the way, they decided to start their new side-hustle a men's apparel clothing company, Friday at Five.

What prompted you to start your men's apparel company, Friday at Five?

Andy was a casual employee of a contracting company as an operator for a local coal mine. At the time there was a lot of uncertainty within the coal industry, we decided it was time to think about the future. Also around the same time Andy had an interest in independent clothing brands, following a lot on social media, we fell in love with the idea of creating our own label, something unique that was ours.

With Eva being an artist and able to create our designs, we though this was an achievable small business we could successfully run from home. We didn't tell anyone of our plans, friends and family weren't in the know purely because this was our plan that we believed in, we didn't want to be influenced in anyway, be it positively or negatively, by those closest to us. We had to back ourselves and trust our gut.

Friday At Five was born!

Months of planning, learning on the run, sourcing manufactures, printers, brainstorming design concepts, logo's, building websites, all while Andy was working overtime shifts to cover the costs involved with starting a new business.

We also welcomed the birth of our second daughter, Layla, in this time. To be completely honest we were out of our depth and had no clue what we were doing. But we were having fun, embracing the challenge and enjoying the journey.

Our first tee's went to print in February 2016 and since, thanks to all of our customers who have trusted in us and purchased our products, we now have and continue to sell Australia wide to every state and territory. Tasmania was the last to come on board in 2018.

We now have created over 40 different limited release designs over a range of products! We are continuously learning and evolving.

The journey continues!

What is your creative background/qualifications?

I (Eva) am our artist (self taught).

I have always loved art (drawing/painting) but when it comes to the digital side of art I was completely in the dark, so I learnt on the go how to use Adobe Illustrator, so that our designs could be ready to print, I'm getting better and more confident with the program and have improved dramatically in these last 4 years!

Andy is the ideas man, his mind is constantly ticking and he is always shooting ideas at me and things he wants me to get down on paper because he has a strong feeling that they will go well! So far he has been pretty spot on and all our art inspired gear has been really well received!

Four years on, is this business your sole income or do you still have a full-time gig?

Andy has still got a full-time job in the mines, I'm a stay at home mum to three kids, so I fully run the business from home. Our aim is for this to be our full-time gig! Hopefully in the not too distant future.

Tell us about the name Friday at Five, how did this come about?

The name represents the weekend, yes, but more than that it's the feeling you get when you're no longer working, you're on your own time, free to do what ever it is you love, be with whoever you choose!

Tell us more about the products you are currently offering?

Our apparel is art inspired limited run designs, we never reprint designs keeping them unique!

We have tees, muscles, singlets, hats, long-sleeve tees, hoodies, crews, button up 'flanno' and beanies.

We also sell original artwork, hand painted one of a kind skateboard deck art coated in resin so it can be used as an art-piece or as a functional board.

What inspires you creatively?

I just love art!

It's always been a part of my life and even if we did not have FAF, I would still be drawing or painting!

Do you work from home, an office or creative workspace?

From home. A lot of the time on the floor, on the lounge, kitchen table, occasionally while in bed. Always surrounded by our kids.

Do you implement any sustainable practices within your company, if so tell us about this?

We use recycled paper bags and we are moving into 100% biodegradable and compostable mailers in place of plastic.

Do you collaborate with any other local GC/Brisbane businesses?

Our screen printers are PSI Screen Printers located on the Gold Coast

Why did you choose TVM as a platform for your business?

We have family that live in Byron Bay and we have herd really great things about the stalls and overall vibe of the market. We have a really strong customer base in QLD (Gold Coast/Brisbane area especially). We wanted to expand our markets outside of NSW and TVM seemed like a great way to do that!

Where’s your favourite local coffee haunt?

Asser House in Scone NSW do one of the best Dirty Chais!

Favourite book?

So hard! I love so many but one of them is - Ivory by Tony Park

Favourite podcasts?

The Joe Rogan Experience and The Basement Yard

Favourite way to unwind?

Outside with my family, music, BBQ and a few drinks.

Thanks Eva and Andy!

Frills Factory was created by Jess Roche, a digital marketer who wanted to jazz up her sisters hospital work shoes by creating handmade re-purposed footwear accessories.

“I started Frills Factory when I was considering what to gift my sister for her birthday. She is a nurse who wears Frankie4 shoes for their orthopaedic benefit over long shifts. Because they're so comfortable and quite a nice looking casual shoe, she wanted to wear them on her days off too. However, they were a bit tainted with the work vibe. So I made her some Frills to accessories her Frankie4's with to fully enjoy wearing them and celebrate her own style, whilst reaping the benefits of their supportive nature.” Jess Roche.

TVM – Do you have a creative background?

FF - I have a double degree in Commerce (majoring in Marketing) and Sports Management and have 15 years digital experience in marketing. As most of it has been in the digital space where there is nothing tangible to show for it, I yearned for something more hands on where I could see and feel the fruits of my labour.

Is Frills Factory a side hustle or a full-time gig?

I have a full-time gig, working from home as a digital marketer for a UK based company.

Tell us about your brand name, how did this come about?

Frills Factory was born out of a play on the word 'Thrills' meaning to suddenly feel excitement (aka a rush) and together with 'Factory', it's the place where rip snorting good times originate. The fun starts here. 'Frills' describe my footwear accessory product to a T and the brand name lends itself quite nicely to an expansion into other product lines.

Tell us more about your products?

My handmade re-purposed leather footwear accessories, Frills, are available in two sizes: Long: 6.5cm wide x 16cm long (best suited to high tops and boots) and Short: 6.5cm wide x 15cm long. There is something for everyone's colour palette from plain bold block colours, to snake-skin-esque designs, leopard-print, chain link and glittery, 'smack you in the face' shimmery numbers.

What inspires you creatively?

I like natural fibres and I love the idea of re-purposing things to give them a new life. I'd love to live in a world where nothing 'new' is created but rather, sourced from something old and innovated. I'm inspired by items that have duel function and a side benefit, whether that be environmental, health, community etc.

I enjoy minimalism so it agrees with me that Frills are quite literally two parts meaning pretty much nothing can go wrong or break.

Do you work from home, an office or creative workspace?

I work from my home office. Thankfully my craft doesn't take up a whole lot of space!

Do you implement any sustainable practices within your company, if so tell us about this?

I only use leather offcuts to make Frills. This ensures there is no waste - every scrap serves a purpose.

Do you collaborate with any other local businesses?

Not yet but I would love to!

Why did you choose TVM as a platform for your business?

I researched many of the different markets on offer and decided TVM best suited my customer. Frill Seekers are sneakily bold. Not necessarily loud personalities but they like to buck tradition and do things a little differently. They are conscious consumers who think twice about just buying more and consider maximising what they already have to create additional looks. They don't conform to the norm. From what I've seen of TVM, Frill Seekers hang out here!

British designers Christie and Karoline first met 10 years ago while studying fashion in High School. They have always had a shared passion for design and a dream of owning their own clothing label. After high school they both went on to study at University, before graduating and deciding to take the plunge into starting their own clothing line in April 2019 - MITTSU.

What is your creative background/qualifications?

Christie grew up in Scotland and has a BA (Hons) in International Business from the University of Edinburgh & also studied for a year in Berlin during her degree. She has always had a strong interest in sustainable fashion and started buying & selling vintage clothing in 2010. Whilst studying at University, Christie started her own second-hand clothing company ‘Christie’s Cupboard’ on an online platform called Depop.

Karoline originally from Norway, moved to Scotland at the age of 10. Having grown up in a country full of rich textile and fashion traditions has strongly influenced her interest in fashion & design. Karoline has a BA (Hons) degree from The Glasgow School of Art and experience working in the industry.

With a shared passion for design and sustainability, they are excited to see what the future holds for Mittsu.

Is this business your full-time gig or a side hustle?

We both work part-time at the moment as well as working on Mittsu. We hope in the future for it to be our full-time job.

Tell us about your brand name, how did this come about?

We wanted our brand name to be short, snappy and exotic. We researched different word options and wanted something unusual - choosing MITTSU.

What products or services are included within your range?

Our initial collection consists of seven pieces all made in the UK; three pieces of swimwear, three pieces of clothing and a bag - which launched in April 2019. We will also be selling handpicked vintage pieces to complement our MITTSU collection.

What inspires you creatively?

The inspiration behind MITTSU'S first collection is strongly influenced by our European travels; from the sparkling coastline of the Côte D’Azur to the charming hilltop villages of Italy. Each piece in our collection has been carefully considered so they can be mixed and matched together.

Do you work from home, an office or creative workspace?

We work from a mixture of home and away - we take inspiration from our surroundings, going to different cafes and countries, which also allow us to photograph our collection while on the go in new and exciting places.

Do you implement any sustainable practices within your company, if so tell us about this?

All of our items have been designed in Glasgow and ethically made in London using locally sourced fabrics in very small limited edition batches to avoid waste. We have a strong focus on sustainability, taking inspiration from vintage photographs and films we make each item focusing on quality and flattering silhouettes seen in the 1950-80s.

Each one of your orders are lovingly packaged in 100% re-usable or recyclable packaging, using no plastic whatsoever. We will always strive to do the best we can and aim to be 100% sustainable, working on our future collections being made from recyclable yarns made from plastic bottles or waste from the sea.
