Auake [ uh-weyk ] was created during the stay-at-home order.
We are a homeware brand sustained in an intentional lifestyle choice to live consciously, in a minimalist way and considering our environment as a priority.
We believe the consumer habits are reshaping to a frame of mind to only invest on things that we need on our daily basis.
Honoring Portuguese culture, well-know for handwork as-well-as sitting around a table gathering for a reason, or no reason at all. Memory makers, over a fresh meal and wine, moments that remain in our souls for eternity.
Auake makes for keeps homeware assembling conscious products each a one-and-only, with raw forms inspired in simplicity.
Collections are unique and therefore in limited units.
After spending over a decade in a nomadic course around the globe, lived in the Middle East and a few other locations, the vision of a lighter way of subsistence grown on me.
All my personal and business ventures merged me into diverse backgrounds which conceived me an immense awareness.
Crystal clear my passion for a cross-cultural cooking and setting up a pleasurable table.
One day I undertook some hours at a Ceramics Studio in Lisbon, the attraction was instant.
Over time my artistic work arised from a need of expression beyond carefully designed products. Developed an openness and respect for the materials and process, as well as the importance of craftsmanship skills.
I welcome you to Auake project, where am I currently striving and experiencing the gift of slow living by the sea & countryside.
