The idea of Asterluxe began brewing while we were living as neighbors on the West End of Providence. We bonded on our shared stoop over commonalities like the adventure of being a maker, creating time for self care, and North Bakery's egg sandwiches. As we watched our neighborhood grow, we pondered what unique perspective we could bring to our our multicultural community. We gathered up all of our crystals and moonbeams and started to plot our gem of a shop.
We’ve assembled an amazing group of makers, many that have fallen into our lives through work travels. Our collection is focused on living well through thoughtful design, materials and construction. We celebrate modern makers, wellness and caring for one’s inner and outer space.
