Here at Tinitrader, we are always coming across gorgeous and unique Australian labels. Laikonik is one of these labels and a brand you won’t be forgetting any time soon, trust us on this!
So, who and what is Laikonik?
“We are mothers, artists and artisans, making hand crafted, original Australian products in a world of mass produced, commercial and disposable goods. We are serious about sustainability and quality but don’t take ourselves too seriously. Behind every design is an artistic impulse and a little bit of our hearts. Most importantly for us, inspiration always comes before commercialism”
It is this philosophy that makes up Laikonik into the spectacular brand it is now.
Founded in 2005 by Kasia Jaquot, Laikonik is a small design and textile silk screen studio based in Sydney. Laikonik was used by Kasia as a vehicle for all her creative ideas and unique designs inspired by Polish folklore which, fast forward 10 years, have certainly not been lost!
The current face behind the Laikonik range is Josephine, mother of two boys who has lived and travelled throughout Australia and the world. Joesphine’s experience goes back over 20 years in the design and branding industry, with her personal inspirations drawing from traditional printmaking methods - lithography, etching, etc.
Laikonik’s collection includes many unique products all of which are handmade with true passion and a desire to create inspiring art. Every piece is created using traditional methods such as paper cut out stencils giving the fabric prints a truly individual feel. Some of our most loved Laikonik products include;
New Baby Journals
Available in two designs, foxy and owl, the New Baby Journal is a Laikonik best seller, and we can see why! The gorgeous journal differs from stereotypical baby books with its beautiful design and wooden keepsake box. The boxed package includes the Once a Year Book, Chatter Book, instructions and a gift tag, making for the perfect baby shower or new parent gift. The Once a Year Book chronicles a child’s life from birth to adulthood in its own unique special way through photos and simple memory.
Art Prints and Wall Hangings
Laikonik’s range of art prints and wall hangings will add the perfect touch to any nursery or bedroom with their sweet designs. Art prints are hand silk screened and ready to frame. Linen wall hangings are also screen printed on to 100% heavyweight flax linen. This gives the piece a rustic charm which can give a great effect to any room.

Laikonik covers any gift needed for Mum, Dad or friends with a range of gorgeous tea towels, scarves, napkins and garlands.
