Hey guys! It’s me
My name is Mahlia and I am the sole owner and designer at Mack and Co- Creatives Club.
I wanted to just share with you guys how @thecreativesclub_ came in to existence briefly. I live with chronic neck and shoulder pain following an accident and when photographing I found it really flared up my injury. I wanted a strap, from a local or small business, that was all about comfort (mostly) and style and I couldn’t find one anywhere. I love the boho/retro vibe but all the straps I saw weren’t fitted to my very simplistic taste. There were a few online companies, but nothing that made me feel the warm and fuzzies. Nothing that screamed at me or stood out. And so then I decided that I wanted to create a brand that sold high quality, luxurious feeling leather accessories for photographers but that was more than that. I wanted to create a collective, a place where the artsy and creative minded people could come together and celebrate..well, us!
And so The Creatives Club was born. A company that sold leather camera straps, but also apparel for ALL the creatives. The designers, the artists, the musicians, the makers, the dreamers and of course, the photographers. I came up with the name one day at a play date. It kind of just came to me. A club, where we all belong. Where the kids who never felt like they fit in anywhere because of their artistically wired mind, finally felt at home.
Our brand isn’t just about making the best straps, it’s about making the best space for creatives. Down the track I will be hosting Creative Workshops which will be a chance for photographers, videographers, visionaries to get together and make magic. I would love to see our company teaching minorities how to take photos as a form of art therapy. I would love to see us having catch ups where we collaborate, inspiring one another and lifting each other up.
For now, this small business mami will work on getting our incredible products out to you all...but I have big plans for this company and I’m glad you’ve come along for the ride #perthphotographer
