A bit of history about a little shop by the sea

Robert, the principal of Talisman has over 30 years experience as a trader & ethical importer. Originally he founded Lysun pty ltd an import business in Sydney. In 1996 Lysun pty ltd became Akimbo Imports, where it operated in Bondi as a wholesaler in the 90s.

In 2000 Robert decided to move the business to Byron Bay where he continued to import from India, Thailand, Nepal & Morocco, to attend trade shows all over Australia & provide textiles, jewellery, clothing, rugs and accessories to boutique shops on a wholesale basis. We are still operating the company to this day, on a more relaxed basis. Hence, the little shop by the sea. Robert is currently working with talented young people here in Australia and a network around the world to work together to provide beautiful hand-crafted products to your door
