at simétrie, our team is made up of artisan craftswomen creating the works of wearable art in our bag range. we’re also lucky enough to have opportunities to collaborate with others in the local community who are just as passionate about quality and style as we are - and to share the talents of our team with them.
Inherently a visual artist & maker of jewellery with a bold & humorous Australiana 80’s aesthetic, Lia Tabrah's creative journey has led her to working with the ‘grotesque’ cane toad.
