“Once upon a time there was an island? On that island, there was a village and in that village lived a group of native bozos. They have lived peacefully for many, many years. There are numerous stories about this island. Some say that the natives have ancient ceremonies for each new tree to get to know each other. Some people also say that dinosaurs have been spotted on the island shore. Others have said that episode 5, season 9 is their favourite Simpson’s episode. But believe what you want. It doesn’t matter. We think it sounds like an idyllic place to live.”
- Bozo Island
Bozo Island was born with a desire to create objects built around tradition and the nature of slow processes, focusing on handmade creations that celebrate raw imperfections but remain for a lifetime. Like Inland, they believe in creating objects that last because the most sustainable way to live is to buy less.
Bozo objects vary in style and structure, and no two are ever the same. To minimise as much waste as possible, any inconsistencies are celebrated and objects come with a lifetime care promise, meaning if they have an accident along the way, they promise to mend and restore. Their objects are sustainability sourced and made from biodegradable materials mixed with the modern remedies of vegetable-dyed inks.
