made from home kits are still available
to save any confusion, even though we have paused made to order on our collections, made from home workshop kits are still available during this time.
we're shipping them out within 3 business days at the moment.
made to order is pausing
as well as providing your simétrie pieces, we also offer our design and creation services to a broader community of businesses who can enlist the talents of our team. we have an exciting opportunity to work with a well-known Aussie brand [its top secret ~ but our newsletter community will be the first to know who it is!] who are supporting locally made through our bespoke services.
this collaboration means we are commencing a large batch production order and as a result, we are pausing made to order simétrie pieces ~ but not to worry!
if you have any questions about this process, please don’t hesitate to get in touch here.
