Aacute was founded on various influences, one of which was Melbourne’s vibrant local community and the other, the rich inspiration from the occasional travel.
Aacute was founded by two sisters, Julie and Kelly, who love making and refining designs that are unique and not exactly like the other.
Aacute has spent six years endlessly learning through the creation process and enjoy taking on new projects that challenge their imaginations.
Mass markets do not inspire them. People in the community do. Instore, Aacute want to be a product that requires thoughtful decision. Aacute refuses to be a trend and will only appeal to those who can feel the ethos of slow and sustainable. They want to be a gesture or gift, which invite the receiver to slow down and create a space for relaxation. Julie and Kelly invite users to put their feet up and relax, be enveloped by the authentic scents and the glow of the candles and its warmth.
The Aacute community appreciates a small business backed by a story and philosophy.
