Owners Nikki and Tom were frustrated in their search for products for themselves which fit their ethos of always shopping as sustainably as possible. It was impossible to find a store that catered for both women and men but also to find one that stocked clothing but also other products used in everyday life. We also wanted to break the stigma that shopping with the planet in mind meant wearing 100% hemp hippy pants, or spending $200 on a t shirt. BLAEK Storewas born out of frustration, filling a gap in the market and wanting to lead the way and make change in an industry stuck in the past.
Amazing store with an incredible range of product. All with a heart felt vision behind it. I love BLAEK! - Georgia
