From its home base in Sydney, Oon which means ‘wool’ in Nepali, combines the age old tradition of an artisan made textile with the fashionable edge of contemporary garments and homewares. That is right, cashmere is not confined to wardrobes of the rich and famous, but is now an accessible bit of luxe to wear or enjoy in the home, everyday. Check out their range of wool rugs, vases, baskets and ottomans in earthy tones with soft pastels in ombre tones – greys, pinks, ivories and then there are delicious pops of brighter hues – lemon, sky, rose and caramel tones in a host of geometric shapes.
If you ever needed another reason to introduce cashmere into your life and home, Oon has it well and truly covered with a covetable range in which each piece is crafted individually in looms and low tech machines to produce hand spun yarn. The company take protection of the environment, sustainability and fair trade very seriously – everything is made with natural, renewable materials with natural sunlight and non-toxic dyes.
When it comes to wearable cashmere, the Oon essential and basic ranges offer trans-seasonal, layering pieces that make the perfect travelling companion – soft and light, warm and trans seasonal and believe it or not, gets better with age.
What we are really excited about is the homewares – Oon’s delightful organic shapes are reminiscent of its creator’s formative years, growing up in the traditional, whimsical and colourful city of Kathmandu.
