well it is official folks, dunkle authentic has a happy new studio home in California Lane, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane.
between the beautiful natural light, crisp stainless steel manufacturing equipment, & warm wooden furniture, I feel pretty over the moon to be in such a wonderful space.
the best part? the chance to share a deeper level of connection with dunkle authentic; for clients to experience the brand through texture, smell, & taste while learning about the manufacturing process.
akin to the farm to table movement, onlookers can now watch me hand-make product batches through the large studio window. indeed there I am in my lab coat, mixing my signature pigment blends, melting organic mango butter with plant oils, & pouring molten lipstick into molds.
during open studio days, I invite you to pop on in & discover the origins of each vegan-friendly raw material; smell the Australian-harvested olive oil, learn how cold-pressed organic rosehip oil is processed compared to rose Maroc absolute, understand the colour tones that go into each foundation shade.
of course, then enjoy a feel-good moment & try on a fresh lipstick, face oil, or get matched in the botanical balm foundation, all the while sipping on chilled rosewater (because rose, naturally).
the next open studio days are this Friday 6 & Saturday 7 March between 9am & 2pm.
an actual dream come true.
Studio 5, California Lane is open every first & third Friday & Saturday of the month between 9am & 2pm, or by appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
