Mood Australia™ began with the design and production of a unique range of quality, hand-crafted gifts for men. Established in 2001 by Steven Marando, the studio and workshop draw on the legendary design reputation of Steven’s own European heritage as the inspiration for our range of original gifts, fashion accessories, jewellery, Australiana souvenirs, architectural hardware and custom-made products in a contemporary Australian environment.
From its early days as a small manufacturer, Mood has grown into one of Australia’s premier one-stop-boutique studios (now nestled among the cottages of Leichhardt in Sydney’s Italian district) incorporating our own process facilities for model-making, metal-casting, electroplating, assembly and finishing. The house range is comprised of the finest-quality materials including pewter, gold-plate, brass-plate, nickel-plate, enamels, horn, bone and crystal, and all creations are handmade and finished under the discerning eye of the craftsman.
In 2012, Mood still oversees all stages of production from original design, individual conception right through to the finished form. In the spirit of artisan-based craftsmanship, the talented men and women at Mood strive to create the highest-quality products possible for the wholesale and custom market, and to ensure unique service beyond simple manufacture and supply.
Mood ethically sources imported and local environmentally-friendly materials such as leather, horn and bone in the production of all our items. We have proudly taken our place as a vibrant, Australian-owned-and-run supplier, and we export to clients all over the world including HONG KONG, USA, EUROPE, UK and NZ.
The vision is simple—to listen to the customer, to provide an outstanding local and international service, and to offer practical, affordable objects of natural beauty for urban living without compromising integrity. Steven Marando and the Mood team celebrate the creative process and the artisan tradition, and we look forward to consulting with you soon.
