Welcome to Holy Kitsch!
After quite some spell of pitting their wits through art school two amigos from artist families eventually decided to join holy forces. Thence from the embers Holy Kitsch! gift stores mainfested sparkling. Holy Kitsch! arose from the combined mass of intense art and design studies, dramatic efforts and passion for the thoughtfully crafted, visionary, sensorial and quirky.
Holy Kitsch! is enamoured by handmade art and collectibles and through Holy Kitsch! Odyssean ethical pilgrimages and Atlas-like efforts is able to support artisans, artists, makers and designers from the random universes including communities in, in particular, Mexico and Central America for their handcrafts and artisan made and contemporary wares. Holy Kitsch! collects from numerous other countries highlighting imagination and differing perspectives too wide ranging to name individually. Holy Kitsch! scours the Planet! Holy Kitsch! also purchases local quality gift wares in Australia. Our wares are ethically sourced and we trade fairly. For example many Mexican artisan wares are cottage generational industries or from long-standing studios oftentimes creating bespoke wares for Holy Kitsch! Holy Kitsch! is run by artists after all so we value that which actually reflects on something. Our ethos is to challenge the mass-produced world of generic consumer goods and present a truly alternative vision of a wonderland of hand created gifts, imaginative quality home wares, more than interesting being a plus and a pantheon of paraphernalia. Home wares and gifts that that are enjoyable, a challenge for people to make and bring joy to the people to whom you give. Gifting a generous warm spirit to the house.
Our extensive and eclectic range includes spectacular handmade Day of the Dead Sugar Skulls, candelabras of great beauty inspired by the Mexican "Dia de los Muertos" and myth, hand painted mirrors evoking the life of Frida Kahlo, vintage styled old school tattoo hand painted bamboo curtains, really cool antique and vintage wares, ephemera and cards, Mexican artist crafts, homewares and contemporary culture. An outrageous variety of gift wares.
Holy Kitsch! also has at our retail gifts stores only, except for a few select pieces, a remarkable gallery of framed imagery including original hand made screen prints, many are Mexican, hand set letterpress, totally hand made linocuts, contemporary tattoo and Mexican limited edition art, tattoo art, hand-made paper-cuts and strings of hand-cut artist made Mexican banners or bunting, a traditional art form in Mexico. Of course Mexican Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos is included! Sorry but y'all just have to drop on by for most of the gallery. The bunting is online.
Holy Kitsch! tries our best to upload new gifts onto our website though really if you are in Sydney you must visit either store to experience the energy and love that goes into Holy Kitsch! The Holy Kitsch! website barely alights on the surface. There really is a difficulty when Holy Kitsch! wares are so individual and numerous. Holy Kitsch! gifts that are supposedly the same frequently vary as they are entirely hand made and sourced from so many different areas. A constantly changing procession. Many gifts are unique, one-offs that Holy Kitsch! has collected on pilgrimage. Even Holy Kitsch! wrestler masks are various.
We pride ourselves on maintaining the best quality and most unusual in all that we discover and acquire. Already we have well and truly earned the reputation for having the most intriguing collection in the random universes, depthless and beyond and are the envy of all! Holy Kitsch! Accept nothing less!
