Marianela has had a few requests to knit this cardigan again and so we have had a total of three knitted 🍁 but every cardigan is unique in its thickness and in its colour - never again will Marianela have the exact same wool or forest ingredients to dye with πŸ˜‰ so rest assured that every one of our garments is the only one that will exist just like it 😜 #handknit #oneofakind #unique #slowfashion #ondama

Morning folks πŸ™Œ I touch this wool and I always need to breath in the scent of sheep life that comes with it! There is something incredibly grounding about absorbing aromas of natural materials that have not been treated with heavy chemicals to 'make them clean' what ever that means right! You can imagine you are on the farm with Etelvina whilst she goes about her daily chores from dawn till dusk, yet taking her time and enjoying the simple pleasures of life!

I don't yet have any wool up on the site but it's in motion...for those living locally, shop by appointment is also open πŸ’šπŸ™β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € #slowfashion #sustainableliving #ethicalfashion #clothes #wool #sheepwool #natural #pure #organic #farmlife #slowliving #slow #lifestyle #grounding #knit #smell #yarn #simple #pleasures #sustainable #life #ondama #breath #touch #hands #shop #supportsmall #byron

Good morning world 🌎
For those that are new to my Ondama purpose -
I chose to work with rural craftswomen in Chile because I believe we have much to learn from their slow, timeless lifestyle that emphasizes conscious actions and quality over quantity. Their ability to live sustainably and in harmony with nature is an ethos to which many of us aspire, but have difficulty fully incorporating into our own lives. They use natural sheep and alpaca wool to knit or weave unique quality wool clothing; if they wish to dye the wool, they use herbs, fruit, or tree bark instead of harmful chemicals. By supporting these women, consumers not only facilitate positive lifestyles for others within the global community but also incorporate a sense of timeless craftmanship into their own lives.

I met the gorgeous Karina who founded @onceuponanartisan at the Off Grid Living Festival on Saturday! Turns out she has been working closely with Peruvian artisans just like I do in Chile. It's refreshing to meet someone who is in the same world trying to maintain the ancient sustainable traditions that these ladies are trying to keep alive. Ensuring ladies such as these are paid honourable wages which allows them to thrive is something we both strive for!
Their baby alpaca jumper is absolutely delicious πŸ’š

I had the pleasure of sharing a space next to the beautiful dancer and ecologist @brittany.eagle.jane at the bushcraft area at the festival yesterday! It was a gorgeous day in the dry heat of an Australia autumn. Thank you for an epic weekend folks πŸ™ I miss Victoria already, I'll be back soon for sure πŸ™Œ

FOLKS!! I am in Sydney and heading down South to Eldorado Victoria next week, in preparation for the Off Grid Living Sustainability Festival on Saturday 28th April πŸ™Œ Its a chance to celebrate and investigate off-grid living in some stunning surroundings.

Canadian smiles + ondama forest goodness πŸ’› Thanks for the delicious photo Kim!
It's been a while since I've posted anything folks, I was taking a leaf out of Marianela's book - she has little to no technology in her life and I communicate with her by calling her daughters phone πŸ“± I think it's crucial that sometimes our phones are forgotten and we focus on walks in nature and hugging trees πŸ˜œπŸ’š #treehugger #ondama #love #canada #nature #forest #tree #green #wildwood #smile #goodness #ethicalfashion #sustainablefashion #slowfashion #easter #sustainable #slowliving #wool #organic #fashionrevolution

Sustainable habits ✌️In harmony with the earth, in harmony with life, in harmony with you 🌞 I'd love to hear about your sustainable habits πŸ™Œ#sustainablefashion #habits #practices #ondama #sustainable #lifestyle #nature #greenfashion #dye #chile #artisans #environment #conservation #potd #landscape #sun #light #fashionrevolution #mountain #quote

Who would like some of Marianela's hand spun alpaca or sheep wool? We have never sold any of this wool but I am really excited about getting some!
I just got off the phone from Marianela πŸ‘ She told me she was spinning her wool as the heat had finally dropped! it was 36 degrees today in Chile and they worry there might be fires due to the extreme heat, but thankfully no fires yet!
In April, JP will be going to Chile and will be visiting her and the alpacas and with any luck will bring some of her fine wools home just in time for Aussie winter!
Marianela shears her sheep and alpaca once a year, usually around October/November time. She then slowly starts to spin the wool, ready to knit her magic!

Marianela's words of wisdom "If I hurt nature, I hurt myself". When I heard her say these words, I knew our values were aligned and we would make a wonderful team πŸ’›#nature #selfcare #earth #sustainablefashion #quotes .

I have just spent a nurturing wonderful 5 months with JP, family and friends in cold but oh so cosy England after 7 years of living in Australia. .
Thank you to all those who enriched my time back in Norfolk, you know who you are ✨❀️

Now en route back to Australia where I am happy + excited to continue to work towards a healthier sustainable fashion world!
Encouraging quality over quantity! β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’
Choosing ethical informed choices that support fair trade.
β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’
Using Eco natural dyes, that do not dirty our waters and wildlife in the process! β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’
Maintaining knitting and weaving traditions alive in small communities in Chile! β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’

Fast Fashion is the Second Largest Polluter in the World, Next to the Oil industry! - The clothes we wear don't need to cause such environmental catastrophes. We work closely with artisans who use only natural materials and ingredients to weave timeless quality wool clothing. The pure sheep + Alpaca wool they use are not treated with any toxic chemicals and natural plants + herbs are used to dye the wool if desired! When it comes to packaging, we use recycled paper + do our VERY best to leave toxic plastic out of the equation! Rest assured there are many healthy alternatives in the fashion world - Slow Fashion is the way forward πŸ™Œ
