About the founder
Hey! I’m Leonie.
In 1985 I embarked on a trip to Bali which sparked a lifelong love for its people, culture, and vibrancy.
Since then, my family and I have visited the island almost every year, and it was during a month-long trip there in 2016 that the idea for Zylish Living was born.
Wandering the bustling street markets and tiny shop fronts where artisan makers proudly displayed their wares, I could just tell that each piece was expertly crafted from the heart.
Inspired to start a business that would allow me to share these unique pieces, I set out on a journey to find the best Bali had to offer.
A journey that ultimately led me to living my dream.
As I travelled the island meeting and building relationships with talented makers, I collected a range of beautiful pieces to take home to Australia with me.
And what started as an excess baggage nightmare at Denpasar airport led to the huge milestone of importing my first container-load of stock just one year later.
Since then, I’ve built a trusted network of artisans and sustainable suppliers in Bali, India, Morocco, Bangladesh, and China, some of whom are now cherished friends.
Zylish Living is proudly stocked in five collective stores in New South Wales.
I hope you love getting lost in our collections.
To living the dream,
