About Us

AUSTRALIAN DESIGNED GIFTS & HOMEWARES 

Along with our in-house brand, Alperstein Designs collaborates with Aboriginal Artists & Art Centres around Australia, creating unique ranges of lifestyle gifts and homewares for both people abroad & Australians alike! 

WHO WE ARE

We are a small family wholesale business (established in 1996) who supply high end retailers, including galleries & museums, with quality, functional lifestyle gifts and homewares.

Whilst Alperstein Designs is not an Aboriginal owned business, we have long established relationships spanning over 15 years with many Aboriginal Artists and Art Centres. These collaborations provide an opportunity to amplify the artist and Art Centre profiles and distribution opportunities. We work primarily with practicing artists whose primary focus is in art making with exhibitions within Australia and around the world. Products are made in consultation with the artists and art centres and aim to complement their existing practice.

WHO WE COLLABORATE WITH

HOW IT WORKS

Alperstein Designs reproduce Aboriginal artworks, under license, on a range of functional lifestyle products so that you can bring some art into your everyday!
Royalties from these products benefit the artists and their community.

We pay ongoing royalties based on licensing agreements which are renewed periodically together with the Artists and Art Centre. Artists always retain copyright ownership of their artwork. Before going into production, we consult with the Artists and Art Centres to ensure that the products you enjoy have been signed off on and all products come packaged with information about the artists and the artwork.

ART GALLERY

Artworks showcased in the Art Gallery are original, authentic artworks.
These artworks are consigned for sale, direct from the Art Centre and come with certification from the Art centre so you can feel confident in the artwork providence and that you have ethically purchased an incredible artwork. Listed sale prices are set in consult with the Art Centre to ensure that sale prices are in line with primary art market prices.
