About Us ~ Meet Lauren & Jackie

“...And suddenly you know it’s time to start something new, and trust the magic of new beginnings” - Meister Eckhart

Olyve & Rose is co-owned by Lauren and Jackie, or Lol and Jax as we are affectionately called, and we believe that the universe brought us together for a special reason. We are two friends originally from South Africa, who share a love for connecting with people, taking on new challenges & living life to the fullest. O & R is an expression of this beautiful new beginning! 

The dream behind Olyve & Rose started on a shared family holiday in Greece where we were both inspired by the beautifully handcrafted pieces and the people behind them. Our vision is to be the platform for many more entrepreneurs who have a special story to tell through their products.

We stand to partner through purposeful connections with suppliers who inspire us through empowerment, heritage and family values. We source in an ethical way that promotes wellbeing for people and planet.
