Šolta is the name of a beautiful island in Croatia that is the birthplace of my grandfather Miljenko (Mick) Garbin. Mick and his brother were amongst the first migrants from Croatia to settle on farmland in Western Australia in 1908 . Our family still has a strong spiritual connection to Gornje Selo the beautiful tiny village that is still home to many Garbins. We chose to use Solta Homewares as our business name because of this connection.
Our daughter Poppy together with her partner Scott started a unique and creative artist workshop in Melbourne aptly named Pop and scott in 2013. Together they have combined their artistic talents to create beautiful things and enjoy growing notoriety amongst stylists and designers alike both locally and interstate .
Solta Homewares was honoured to be appointed as the West Australian distributor of Poppy's stunning Pop and Scott pots range in 2014. We love the way Pop and Scott pots help people to create their own stylised living spaces in and around their home or business.
Look forward to meeting you and showing you more of the wonderful Pop and Scott range.
