In Bed with Axel & Ash

The Bondi based girls behind aspirational travel diaries Axel & Ash are Hanna Axelsson Sahlen and Ashleigh Powell. With divine journals, hand drawn world maps and a new range launching soon, we chatted to these creative entrepreneurs to get their take on wanderlust. 

Was there a particular place on either of your travels that inspired the creation of Axel and Ash?

One memorable afternoon on Ash’s balcony in Bondi Beach we decided to share our own crazy bucket lists. Filled with laughter and excitement, whilst indulging in fresh coconut juice we bonded over our passions for travel, adventure, photography, the art of journaling and a common bucket list goal - to start a business – and Axel & Ash was born.
