Today, we bring you a giveaway from SouleMama Sponsor, Monaluna. In Jennifer's words:
"Monaluna is an independent organic fabric company operating out of a 100-year-old farmhouse in Walnut Creek, California. All of our fabrics are GOTS-certified organic and tend toward the modern, graphic and whimsical. We’ve also recently added sewing patterns and kits!
Visit us on Facebook."
SouleMama: In your mind, what is that one thing which makes your business different?
Jennifer: One of the wonderful things about being such a small business is how intensely personal it is. My husband and I started Monaluna out of a real desire to bring more organic fabrics to the marketplace, and were thrilled to find a community of customers who were as excited about the product as we are. At this point, I wear all the different hats, and it allows me to have really strong and direct relationships with my vendors and my customers. We’ve grown a lot over the past year, and I just hired an assistant a couple of months ago, but as we grow we plan to continue the personal feel of our business.
Jennifer: We have a new collection coming out this week called Raaga, and I’m really excited about it. Most of our collections are great for kids things, but I’d had requests for fabric that is more appropriate for women’s clothing, so I designed this line to be a little more sophisticated. The colors are warm and rich, and the hand is light and drapey – perfect for blouses and summer tunics!SouleMama: As a child, what did you wish to become when you grew up?
Jennifer : I wanted to be something different every week: a painter, writer, cook, dancer, fashion designer… along with a number of other mostly creative professions. Recently I realized that I am able to practice many of those skills in my current work, and it’s a truly wonderful thing.
Jennifer : I think the role of “handmade” has evolved in a really wonderful way in recent years. I always loved to make things, but when I was a kid, actually wearing something that you (or, gasp, your grandmother) made definitely wasn’t cool. Some of that was probably just being a ten-year-old, but boy has that changed! “Handmade” has grown to signify quality, creativity and a desirable uniqueness. It shows that thought, heart and intentionality was put into making the item. I also think that as a society we’re identifying that the process of making can be as important and inspiring as the item itself.
