Bootblack KL oozes passion for her craft. With 6+ experience privately bootblacking, she didn’t see a stand until 2014 at a mixed leather event. Since then she has established herself as a community minded and engaging person; an educator of bootblack culture in both the Melbourne and wider Australian communities. Bootblack KL has been described as a loyal and committed community member who takes pride in her work. With the motto of Bootblack +, she is about the diversity of “us”. She is a mother, a daughter, a lover, an educator, a writer, a publisher and a bootblack.
