Introducing | Barkly Basics - Everyday Consumables For the Stylish Home

Created by Melbourne molecular biologist, Dr. Natasha Malkov, BARKLY BASICS was born to address a gap in the market for simple yet stylish kitchen accessories.

 Indulging her appetite for creativity, Natasha embarked on a journey to design, develop and produce a range of products to help fill this gap.

Using her sense of style, coupled with her background in science, the resulting range is both innovative and beautiful.

By incorporating a simple monochromatic palette, and utilising a selection of natural materials, the BARKLY BASICS range expertly combines aesthetics and functionality to create a kitchen product you’ll actually want on display.
