What drives us.

Cultivating wellbeing  with plants.
What started as an idea to 'encourage creativity with greenery' has grown into an all-encompassing commitment to cultivate wellbeing with plants. We’re passionate about wellness and the myriad life-enhancing benefits plants can bring people and share this through everything we do. This enthusiasm has seen us grow from releasing a small collection of four plant stands in 2014 to being an integral part of an inspiring 'green' movement much bigger than ourselves today.



Crafted in Melbourne since 2014.
Design & craftsmanship are at the forefront of everything we do. With a focus on traditional techniques and materials with integrity, Ivy Muse botanical wares are manufactured locally, in small batches, whenever possible. We work closely with a curated selection of local makers and manufacturers to bring our products to life. For some small collections, we also collaborate with artisans around the world depending on the raw materials and handcraft required.



Community
As a female-owned and run business in operation for seven years, as we’ve grown, so too have our families; we’re both mothers (to five children in total!) and we understand the juggle of mothering whilst running a small business; it takes a village to raise both! We’re constantly buoyed by the Ivy Muse community and operate from a place of collaboration since we began in 2014 - we value our customers’ input in what we create and we’re aware everything we do is an opportunity to better serve our community.



Sustainability 
Sustainability is an integral part of Ivy Muse and we’re driven to be more conscious of our impact on the planet, to innovate and create positive change for a brighter future. We are committed to improving our business practices and offsetting our carbon footprint through a number of initiatives like using quality local materials, reducing waste and making botanical wares that last a lifetime. We manufacture our botanical wares in Melbourne whenever possible to reduce carbon footprint emissions from transportation. Small-scale local production also helps to eliminate the waste of unneeded products made to adhere to overseas minimums, reduce emissions and energy usage.
