What does sustainability mean to you?
For me, I think of it as the preservation of the future – whether we’re talking about being mindful of our natural environment, or our own/other’s mental and physical wellbeing; it’s all about safeguarding the future. This is why I prefer using natural materials in my products. The crafting side of it also forms part of my own self care routine to an extent, which helps me to sustain my personal well-being.
What inspires you in your business?
Macrame, for me, is a very mindful practice. It keeps my hands busy and helps to slow my mind, so that was the initial inspiration behind taking it up when it was my hobby. Knowing that the time and effort put into making each piece is so appreciated and enjoyed by those who have bought something from me is such a lovely feeling and helps to keep me inspired to keep at it. That and seeing how wonderful the creative / small business community is! Seeing so many other women smashing it on their journeys makes me so happy I decided to finally take the leap myself.
Something you couldn’t live without?
So many things! Music is a huge thing for me, I have so many musical interests and it plays a big part in my life. It’s perfect for everything – whether you need to escape for a moment, calm your mind, dance and sing with joy, celebrate or fully rage out… music will always have your back. I truly believe it is one of the best things humans have ever created and I couldn’t imagine my life without it.
