Where Elegance meets Function
Austin Press is a small letterpress and apothecary located in the historic Pier 70 shipyard in San Francisco. Inspired by the craftsmanship of days gone by, Kim Austin’s aesthetic is informed by rare books and turn of the century ephemera. Or – any curious, small object that conveys a sense of beauty.
Aromatically nuanced candles made from botanical waxes, fine perfume, and natural essential oils. Small batch pours in large 12 ounce milk glass vessels, double braided cotton wicks, and long clean burns. Exquisitely adorned with letterpress art and hand-crafted packaging.
A blend of wet dirt, forest florals, neroli and earthy, woody sandalwood
