Laboratory tested for hygiene, Wild Wares camphor laurel timber was found to contain natural anti-microbial chemicals (also known to occur naturally in edible products) making it the most effective food preparation surface with regard to reducing microbial growth.

Wild Wares

Wild Wares chopping boards have been extensively tested by a NATA approved laboratory for the four most common food viruses (E coli, Salmonella, Staph and Listeria).

The tests carried out on Wild Wares’ boards showed that bacteria were unable to survive after just a short time on the boards.

The table below shows the test results. The timber for our boards used domestically and commercially for the past 7-10 years showed ZERO bacteria growth.


The Boards Save Australian Ecosystems

The camphor laurel species is a declared environmental weed and has an ecologically harmful effect on natural ecosystems within the Australian landscape.

It is causing particularly problems to our natural habitat in South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales, where the timber for our boards is sourced.

There are Government programmes in place that encourage the removal of these invasive trees from sensitive environments and their utilisation by enterprises to support local economies.

The boards support the local Australian economy and save Australian ecosystems

But they do more than that . . .

Saving Koalas and Other Wildlife

Wild Wares plant trees for koalas who have not only had their homes destroyed by Australia’s recent bushfires, but have suffered for years due to drought and excessive tree-clearing for human houses. Sadly, they are on track to be extinct as early as 2050 – this is not a future we want to see for the koalas so Wild Wares are determined to help save them by replanting the trees they need to survive and thrive.

Having run a wildlife charity for years, raising over $400,000 for wildlife all around the world, Wild Wares will continue to raise much needed funds for wildlife conservation by donating 20% of their profits through charity Animal Works International.

Animal Works uses its funds to buy physical resources such as land, anti-poaching gear, research equipment, veterinary supplies and educational tools for various conservation projects around the world, including here in Australia.

Wild Wares is proudly Australian Made and Owned

The famous Australian Made, Australian Grown (AMAG) logo is the true mark of Australian authenticity. It’s Australia’s most trusted, recognised and widely used country of origin symbol, and is underpinned by a third-party accreditation system, which ensures products that carry the logo are certified as ‘genuinely Australian’.

As a registered certification trademark, the AMAG logo can only be used on products that are registered with the not-for-profit Australian Made Campaign Ltd (AMCL), and which meet the criteria set out in the Australian Consumer Law and the AMAG Logo Code of Practice.

The Team Behind Wild Wares

Wild Wares seek to create elegant timeless homewares that are works of art as well as practical products for your home.

Wild Wares’ products are designed by the creative duo internationally award winning artist, Nafisa and illustrator, Imogen Taylor.

Nafisa is one of Australia’s most awarded artists – having won the Archibald Packer’s prize, the Gold Medal for Painting from the Florence Biennale and she has been a finalist in every major art prize in Australia. Her works are in numerous corporate and private collections around the globe.

Wild Wares has come about through our shared passion for our planet’s dwindling wildlife and our determination to help save it. Wild Wares plant trees for koalas and donate 20% of their profits to wildlife conservation through our not-for-profit Animal Works International.

Wild Wares


Born in the land of the Tiger, in Mumbai India. Nafisa became acutely aware at a young age of the impact the crush of humanity was having on our planet’s already endangered wildlife.

Growing up in Hong Kong and then later migrating with her family to Australia, her desire to make a difference led her to study Medicine at UNSW, and later began a fashion business designing and manufacturing fitness wear and swimwear for a global market.

Her love of art, wildlife and the environment then pulled her into looking at the fragility of our eco-systems and the pressures humanity places on all those around it. In 2000, she began her full-time career in Fine Art, after winning a scholarship to Australia’s oldest Atelier art school (JAAS) and in 2007 completed a post-graduate degree (Master of Fine Art) at the National Art School.

Nafisa has won the Archibald Packers prize, the Gold Medal for Painting from the Florence Biennale and she has been a finalist in every major art prize in Australia. Her works are in numerous corporate and private collections around the globe.

Nafisa’s passion for the world’s increasingly fragile and endangered wildlife inspired her to create a not-for-profit charity, Animal Works in 2009, her call to action against wildlife destruction. The charity partners with conservation projects around the world to educate and protect the world’s most threatened species through the sale of wildlife artworks.

Nafisa believes that it is time we experience a collective awakening and educate the broader community on the truth of our disappearing wilderness.

It is imperative that we look upon the world as the fragile ecosystem that it is and that we take responsibility for what is a global problem and action change.


Imogen’s first career was a lawyer for an international firm in London, before moving to an environmental law charity to work in a field she was a passionate about.

It was there that it dawned on Imogen that she wanted to focus her attention on trying to prevent many of the environmental issues she fighting from ever existing in the first place.


She was also longing for a more creative life so she taught herself digital illustration, headed to the other side of the planet and became a children’s author-illustrator of conservation books covering topics from poaching to deforestation to pollution.

Whilst Imogen believes that it’s vital for children (tomorrow’s decision makers) to understand the environmental issues facing our planet, if we are to stand any chance of saving it in the future, she doesn’t believe in painting a doom and gloom image of these important issues. Instead her books inspire children to be planet-saving adventurers.

The pair met at the Global March for Elephants and Rhinos in Sydney in 2016 and decided to join forces to help save wildlife. Together with another friend, they run Animal Works International.

Wild Wares has come about through our shared passion for our planet’s dwindling wildlife and wild places and a determination to help save them.

Wild Wares homeware are available on their website and on website as well.
