We both see the month of August as kind of a turning point, a stress-free shift in the thought process. August brings beautiful weather, long days, and a feeling of calm and relaxation that let your ideas flow freely and easily. When we were coming up with the name for our brand, we came across a painting called She was in August Company. That phrase stuck with us, and we looked more into what it means and found out that it means ‘to be in good company’, surrounded by anyone or anything that makes one happy and content. There it was, right in front of us, and we knew that’s the feeling we want to inspire and contribute to.
It comes about when you’re surrounded by someone or something you feel a genuine connection with, be it when exploring the unknown on your travels or enjoying breakfast at home with your friends. It comes about when you’re in august company.
We often speak about a mood we want to pass on through our products, a certain calm yet pure happiness, which you recognise the second you feel it, and which fills you with joy and a sense of belonging. It comes about when you’re surrounded by someone or something you feel a genuine connection with, be it when exploring the unknown on your travels or enjoying breakfast at home with your friends. It comes about when you’re in august company. That’s what we feel defines us, and that’s what we want to recreate through our products and creative process.
We believe that it’s not about how many things you surround yourself with, but what connection you have with them, which is also why we take such good care of how our products are made. We care about the materials, love the fantastic skill the craftsmen bring into the process, and love learning all about it. We truly hope that all this translates into the final products and that they will make you feel that spark of joy and bring about a sense of completion, a sense of being in august company.
