Higher Road Australia

Sally Sattler is primarily a clothing designer, but when travel came to a halt last year, so did production on her line of versatile women's dresses made from natural fabrics.  In keeping with her optimistic outlook, she didn't let the ensuing lockdown dampen her spirits, and used the time to create Higher Road Australia.

The online boutique, Sally tells us, is "for women looking to elevate both their personal and living styles." She has curated a collection of feel-good products, with a focus on remaining approachable.  "We believe life itself is a balance ...the difference between how yo live and how you want to live lies in taking the elevated path - a higher road," she explains.

Sally operates the store from her home on a cattle station stud in Drillham, in Qld's Western Downs region.  Her vision is for the store to act as a platform for both creators and consumers, supporting each other to encourage local business.  The site features three categories - personal style, self-care, and home - and offers sundresses, linen shirts, pearl jewellery, candles and essential oils. Of note is the stylish linenware by LJC designs, and Li'Tya skincare, made using Aboriginal healing techniques and native botanicals.  

This year, Sally will also relaunch her fashion line, Jean with Grace.
