tea of earth
Tea of Earth Founder Rebecca Moore is a Tea Master and Blender based in Kyneton, a lovely little country town 15 minutes’ drive from Endangered.
Her groundings in tea began in a backyard vege patch as a kid, infusing fresh mint and healing herbs to drink. When she wasn’t concocting healing tonics, Rebecca was getting an education in the finer art of tea drinking with her grandmother’s fine china.
Fast forward 20 plus years in the tea industry and Rebecca has built up quite a following.
Her passion for fresh, organic healing teas has translated into over 100 blends and tea extracts.
You’ll find our favourite blends in Endangered’s online store, with plenty more flavours to choose from instore.
Eaststyle Furniture is a local family-owned business in every sense of the word.
Based in Tullamarine, Melbourne, the business has been manufacturing innovative and stylish furniture for over two generations.
Their handcrafted furniture is made using fabrics that are cut, sewn and upholstered in their factory. While native plantation timber Tasmanian Oak is their most popular hardwood used for frame foundations.
Although we don’t offer their marvelous furniture via our online store, you’ll find selected pieces on display at our retail space in Woodend.
Tony Barnes has been making a full time living as a potter since 1978. His studio is located in the tiny historic village of Malmsbury, less than half an hour from Endangered’s retail store.
His masterful skills as a production potter are reflected in a full range of functional ware, such as pasta bowls, casserole dishes, teapots and mugs.
Known for using traditional Chinese and Japanese-style glazes, Tony has mastered copper reds that give a beautiful red ruby colour to some of his pieces.
Tony conducts live ceramic demonstrations at popular The Lost Trades Fair each year and has work displayed in local and international museums.
Founder and Aromatherapist Siobhan McCuskey is passionate about plant-based ingredients and the therapeutic benefits of essential oils on the skin and in the home.
Siobhan created her own luxurious aromatherapy products to help recreate that ‘day spa’ feeling at home.
Bask Aromatherapy products are made with premium quality, vegan friendly, plant-based ingredients. Her luscious products are made in small batches in Melbourne to Siobhan’s unique recipes and minimal packaging is used.
They have also partnered with Fifteen Trees to reduce their carbon footprint by planting a tree for every online and wholesale order.
three little rams
Geraldine from Three Little Rams is a Kyneton-based sewer and crafter, who creates gorgeous bags, clutches and pouches.
She discovered her passion for sewing through self-development, honing her skills to bag making.
Using predominantly Australian flora and fauna printed fabrics, Geraldine’s creations are perfect gifts for not only the overseas and interstate traveller, but those who travel or live within the beautiful Macedon Ranges.
Husband and wife team Floyd and Patricia are Melbourne-ites that deliver cocoa-filled joy via their fine and organic chocolate treats.
The pair kicked off in 2004 as a home-based business, driven by the desire to create a truly handcrafted chocolate product that was also 100% Australian made.
Floyd also happens to be an experienced five-star Pastry Chef, Chocolatier and Creative Madman (his words not ours), so his skill-set was well and truly in place to kick off a chocolate adventure that has led to the most superb tasting Australian made chocolate.
Trust us, you can really taste the difference.
