With my mum being a ceramic artist and my dad events producer from a very early age I was surrounded by art and culture. I remember spending my days in my mum's workshop filled with clay, glaze dust, and unfinished pieces of art in the making. Being able to understand the beauty of the process of craft making I wanted to cherry-pick the most stunning items for my customers' home life. Recently I realized another long-lived passion by introducing my own designs to home items, wall prints, and clothing collections. Besides curating creations of others it has been just a blessing to be able to add my own designs to the offering.
Created for fellow mums in need of the quality me-time
Being a mum of 1 I created the items thinking of my fellow mums who very rarely have any time for themselves. As we are so busy - finding opportunities for beautiful me-time can be challenging. I wanted to help women create a home and space for themselves where they would be able to fully relax and enjoy the quiet moment with a book or cup of tea in their favorite loungewear, journaling or simply savoring the moment by having to do nothing at all.
A while ago I read the quote saying “Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realise they were the big things.” That just hits the nail on the head of what life is about for me and I want others to be able to share the same philosophy too.
Sustainable materials and manufacturing process
When looking for suppliers I always look for eco-friendly and sustainable items to sell. I understand the impact consumers have on the environment and since I am in the retail business I want to be able to do it right, considering the natural resources and how much damage mass manufacturing can cause to the environment.
We only produce items we get an order for, avoiding textile waste from overproduction. Our and manufacturing printing partner's state-of-the-art printing tech creates almost no wastewaters and uses less energy. Out clothing is printed with the direct-to-garment (DTG) printing method. The printing tech we use is made with sustainability in mind, and our DTG printers use almost zero wastewater and less energy, lowering our carbon footprint. Each product you see in the unique Little Dune design line is made-on-demand, which means once you place the order, we start working to get it to you. It takes time for us to create and send out the product, but making each order on-demand allows us to avoid overproduction. This way we're all part of the sustainable fashion movement. I also choose eco-friendly and organic materials whenever possible, which are higher in quality and can last many washes which steers consumers away from fast fashion.
