I am a Melbourne dweller and like many Melburnians I love my coffee. I live with my husband and two children, Vienna, 13 and Luca, 8. We grow veggies, I clean often but never iron.
I started Acorn after an elusive search for a lovely soft winter hat made of pure merino wool with a fun and whimsical design for my little girl.
With nothing available to suit my tastes and sensibilities, I decided to draw on my ten years of experience in the fashion industry and create my own children’s label specialising in hats, scarves and mittens.
I believe products should be made to last and in ethics in business; I am passionate about fair-trade and selling a product that has brought benefit along the whole supply chain.
We support a women's collective that have been hand-knitting most of our winter products since we started.
I believe we should shop local and support small business whenever possible.
I try to live by my personal values of...
Be kind to yourself and others
Exercise whenever possible
Don’t waste energy on negativity
As a Mum I believe in...
Letting them get messy
Ask about their dreams
Take them into nature whenever possible
Cuddle them often
Thanks for stopping by.... and I hope you enjoy your piece of Acorn
