If you are new to Fat Mango, WELCOME! We are Rik + Em. We are the makers, creators, stock finders, website updates, photographers, graphic designers, market goes and emailers! We live in a little country town and both teach at the local school. We L O V E Fat Mango and the journey it's taking us on! Welcome to our page!!
F A T M A N G O started one Sunday afternoon, mid 2014. It was cold & raining, so we decided to have a Sunday craft hour. After this craft hour, we posted our finished products, (which we thought were good enough for the garage wall) to Instagram & we were surprised by the likes & comments!
Sunday craft hours became more & more regular. To the point we had created so much (awesome) stuff we decided to create an Instagram & Facebook account, so our friends didn't have to keep seeing our very regular #crafthour #diy related pics.
FAT MANGO was born!
We attended a couple of local markets in Bordertown SA, where our items flew off the tables. We were overwhelmed by the support & positive feedback from the local community.
We are always creating new, one off, handmade pieces so make sure you check back regularly (especially after Sunday craft hour) for the latest FAT MANGO craze.
