Once Was Lost – Where Fair Trade Meets Timeless Luxury
What began as a want for beautiful, thoughtfully designed products, evolved into so much more when Once Was Lost founder Laura partnered with Ethiopian artisans to bring their luxuriously handcrafted products and skills into our homes.
Once Was Lost operates as a for profit social enterprise, choosing to collaborate with artisans, nurturing age old techniques, in a way which allows them work from their homes and be part of their community.
“We work with a different business model that best benefits our artisans. For us, it’s all about creating opportunity for the men and women we work with to be strong, to have a voice, a sense of self-respect and a genuine feeling of pride in the work they do – gaining a sense of hope that they will then pass onto their children.”
You can feel the quality, see the extraordinary detail and appreciate the love and care which has gone into making every single piece. I know my Once Was Lost throw will come with me on every adventure, to be loved and treasured for a lifetime.
