Creative Minds

Creative Minds 


In operation since 1995, Creative Minds is the most unique direct import store.  Owner and founder Mike Cook travels to Indonesia, Thailand, India and Nepal in search of handmade folk art, clothing and jewellery - purchased directly from the artisan families themselves.  The more than 20 year relationships Creative Minds has personally established with these families helps the families earn a sustainable living while providing festival goers with unique products to beautify their lives.

We pride ourselves on fair and ethical business transactions both home and abroad. You will find tapestries and decor items, sculptures, natural fiber clothing, instruments, sterling silver jewelry, organic bone, horn and wood jewellery, incense and essential oils, handmade paper products, beads and more!
