Responsible design – meet the makers of your kit:
Joanna Kubala is a Polish designer. In her own words she described her youth as difficult and poverty stricken. She is 41 and was a child during communist rule. During her childhood stores were empty, there was nothing to buy. Her grandmother made her mothers clothes and knitted sweaters. Joanna also wanted to make her own sweaters and started to teach herself using knitting magazines. She wanted beautiful and unique clothes and was soon envied by other school children. Joanna loves Intarsia because it requires patience and attention to detail.
The beautiful Indigo blue Ocean soaps are hand made from Natural ingredients by Sara White of Samaavar.
