About the Owner
My name is Noriza, I started this business for my children, and the world I want them to grow up in. My three daughters are usually at the shop with me- my eldest running the Boutique with me and the youngest two making teddy bear castles underneath the displays. Meraki Collective is about keeping them close to me, it is about their future, my future, the future our brothers and sisters around the world. I believe we can make a difference, however small at first, by supporting the Meraki way of life, and making ethical purchasing accessible to Australia and the rest of the wonderful World!
My greatest wish is to be able to work directly with Fair Trade producers in developing communities and assist in developing their skills for lifelong and meaningful employment, where they don’t have to worry about how to put food on the table or how to find clean drinking water, where they can keep their families close and safe. It starts with this website. I believe everyone deserves to live with Meraki- soul, creativity and love.
We are looking forward to expanding and sharing this wonderfully, exciting journey with you. Thank you for being part of our roots. May you always live with Meraki!
