“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
We all know that everything we buy has created an impact upon the planet, upon the person who has made it, upon their family, community and the precious environment in which they live. We want to slow down, choose mindfully. We want to minimise environmental impact, support sustainability in culture as well as the environment. We also want beautiful things, quality over quantity. With all this in mind we have created Onslow Street. A collection of hand crafted pieces made with love and tradition. Each purchase you make from us will support our favourite charities below:
- A purchase of our beautiful Journals will support Nature Conservative Initiative Nepal
- A purchase of our beautiful Nichos or Milagros will support The Monarch Butterfly Fund Mexico
- A purchase of our beautiful bags will support Project Maji Ghana
- All other purchases will support Mission Australia
A childhood spent on the sensory rich Dyarubbin lands (Hawkesbury River), a lifetime of travelling and living abroad, lead to finding love and settling on the beautiful Garigal Land (Sydney Northern Beaches) to raise a family.
Onslow Street was created to bring you our most favourite handcrafted and beautiful pieces from our travels. The “slow “fashion movement is close to our hearts and we believe this should also filter through to all aspects of our ‘consumer’ lives. We would like to be a part of the change.
We believe that along with clothing, disposable and mass produced homewares and gifts should be a thing of the past. Soulful, handmade gifts and homewares that you will love for a lifetime and that can be lovingly handed on. Quality over quantity.
With respect for the craftswomen and men, their culture, lands and community. Onslow street is about slowing down and really loving what we have in our homes, and in the gifts we give and receive.
Our promise to you is that we will work hard to bring you the best hand crafted goods. We are a small family business and each transaction is personal to us. We are available to assist in any way we can and can assure quality and customer satisfaction.
Fair Trade is a trading partnership based on dialogue, transparency & respect.
We support the Nature Conservation Initiative Nepal,The Monarch Butterfly Fund, a Community Conservation of Monarch Forest in Mexico and Project Maji in Ghana which provides solar-powered water kiosks.
Through our chosen charities we give back to those artisans and craftspeople. Supporting the women who support their own families and communities.
