Sasha Titchkosky on following your heart


When we embarked on our Rosebery showroom, a 2,000 square metre, 100 year old warehouse building, it was really exciting. It was like there had been a real renaissance in Australia for Australian made and designed product.

On this episode of People of Purpose, Johanna speaks to Sasha Titchkosky, co-founder of much loved Australian design brand, Koskela. Sasha talks about about creating a business with a mantra “Follow your heart. Trust your judgement. Do it with joy.”

She is a design lover and a book lover, with a passion for Australian products and people. She shares her passion for Yuta Badayala, a collaboration between traditional weavers from Elcho Island Arts in Arnhem Land and Koskela. She also talks about the pair’s new project, Koskela Kitchen, the challenges they’ve faced in pursuing a purpose-led business, and the joy she gets out of producing good quality products.
