MAKER #3 - ALANNA COONEY
Alanna Cooney, in her studio, Brookvale, NSW
Again, another dear friend, in fact all folks featured in our 'Makers' Series are friends. We wanted to first feature the makers that are closest to us. Yes, that list is endless, not cause we are popular and know everyone... But because we are fortunate to have a network of friends, who just so happen to be some of the greatest creators in the world.
And, this lovely lady is one of the greatest. Alanna comes from the PR world, but after studying Ayuverda Medicine with her partner Madeleine Whitter, they launched Ayu.
For nearly 9 years they have created beautiful Ayuverda body products, which started with fragrances and body oils, and now includes candles, incense, cold process soaps, face mists, with more products on the way. Unbeknownst to us, some of these products are made, or poured right there in their studio/ clinic in Brookvale.
"We pour a rich knowledge of traditional remedies into each bottle, with each scent deeply rooted in the sacred science of Ayurveda. Within a petal exists a cosmos of healing. Ayu infuses the ancient power of plants, flowers, resins and barks to enhance your modern universe."
In order, Alanna wears;
Wide Jean - mellow
Straight Jean - coal
Wide Jean - true blue
