Our store opened as Ex Libris Prints in Vincent Street Daylesford in May 1997 with a further room opened a few years later. Owners Jo & Robin purchased the building in 2012 and renovated the store, re-opening as eCasa Daylesford.
eCasa – “E”uropean Home (“casa”) stocks classic European homewares with much of the stock sourced directly from artisan suppliers in France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Wales & Scotland. Jo & Robin travel to Paris each January attending Maison Objet (one of Europe’s biggest homewares fairs). They also scour the flea markets of Paris to find quality vintage French linen, cutlery and other brocante for the store. Often they also visit one or more of eCasa’s suppliers to see the creation of the beautiful homewares in the artisan’s studio or factory.
Karen (eCasa store manager) and Jo also work with Australian importers of quality homewares from New Zealand, the US and Europe.
eCasa is also focussed on showcasing local artists and designers including Sarah Gabriel (Kyneton-based artist), Greg Stirling (Castlemaine-based furniture maker) and Sonia Collard from Habadash (Castlemaine-based vintage button dealer). The eCasa collection is curated in store by Louise, Karen and Jo.
Daylesford and the Central Highlands region is a beautiful area to visit for a day or stay for a week. Jo & Robin have created a beautiful French-style boutique apartment on the first floor above the store – L’Atelier Daylesford.
