Elemental Barossa is more than a shop. It is a reflection of the travels and passions of its owners, Lisa Ognjanovic and Steffen Peter, and of their appreciation for traditional handmade craft.
Lisa, from the small town of Gladstone in South Australia’s mid north, and Steffen, born in East Germany, met during stints working on aid projects in Southeast Asia.
Together, they travelled extensively throughout Asia and Europe and, along the way, they grew to admire and appreciate the cultures that value and respect age old customs and support artisan craftsmanship and traditionally made products.
Now with a young family, overseas work and travel has taken a backseat for the couple, settling in the Barossa and Elemental Barossa has grown to be known as a home for beautiful handmade goods, sourced from traditional cultures around the world.
