Mister Christmas

Gifts for Him are often the hardest to buy, but at Handmade, we have your Man-Gifts covered with many treats from wallets to cufflinks and whiskey to biltong. Cue The Mister Brand, a wonderful vintage style business that produces natural grooming products. The Mister Brand are no strangers to Handmade, and will be back on 10 & 11 December with lots of products for you to try. We asked the lovely Catherine our five questions.

  1. What is your business all about?

The Mister Brand is a boutique business specialising in natural men’s grooming products. We create quality Australian handcrafted, vintage style products that are gentle on the skin and easy on the earth. We source top quality ingredients with numerous benefits and amalgamate them into a cocktail of amazing.

At The Mister Brand we believe that we are taking a forward step, back in time, to where craftsmanship and quality were highly valued, brewed together with skill, passion and care above machinery and quantity.

Our objective at The Mister Brand is to deliver a product and experience to our customers that is about celebrating people being in charge of their face, be it bearded or shaven.

  1. What advice would you give to designers coming to Handmade for the first time?

Take the opportunity to network. There is a wealth of knowledge and experience that fellow stallholders are willing to share…plus you might make a new friend. 

  1. What’s the best thing about Handmade?

A well orchestrated market with customers that have a genuine interest, appreciation and love to support niche handmade products.

  1. What’s new for the Christmas Market?

You can expect a couple of our tools to appear such as The Mister Brand handcrafted beard combs and our handsome wooden barber straight edge razor…not for the faint hearted.

  1. What will Santa be bringing you this year?

Happy to do a trade Santa!…a bottle of beard oil for a bottle of Veuve Clicquot? 🙂
