Kate has always been passionate about beautiful aesthetics and experiences and the joy that these instil. The thirteen years she lived abroad in London and Hong Kong opened her eyes to a world of luxury goods - in which she unashamedly indulged. Upon her return to South Africa, she struggled to find similar items at an affordable price-point, which didn’t compromise on the scent or the experience.
Inspired by the abundance of local florals and scents, she decided to create her ideal products and spent months researching and trialling new ideas. The result was a bespoke range of handcrafted hydrating and exfoliating bath products, inspired by her favourite scents and flowers from her own garden. She recalls the delicate art of growing her own roses, the anticipation of waiting for them to flower; the headiness of their scent on summer days. She began gifting the products to friends, who immediately requested more, so delighted were they with the experience and aesthetic effects.
Kate loved the feeling of gifting something that created so much joy – both for herself and for the recipients. She now dedicates herself full-time to the joyfully fragrant world that is Kate Sunley; a collection of beautiful and nourishing things.
