When we are processing applications, we have criteria, which we follow in order to prioritise the more ideal products to be represented at aBL. Your application, including images, online descriptions and all aspects of your business are seriously and carefully considered.

These criteria we look at in particular are items that are short run, items that are locally made/sourced, eco-friendly, unique and aimed at our target market of 30-year-old+ consumers.

This does not mean that each designers product has to meet every criteria,  this just helps us to choose between multiple applicants in the same category!
