HELLO, HELLO, HELLO! and happy sunday.
How was your weekend friends? I feel like I killed it in the organizational/cleaning department yesterday. Major win for ME! ; )
Paola Buendia who is the founder of Woodenship Knits is passionate about her knits – the quality, the yarns, the stitches, the details, the colors, the patterns, the crazy softness (so important!), and achieving that super comfy flattering fit that’s effortless and easy. Just to name a few things…
Her journey began 25 years ago in Bali with her now husband, Mark. Today they are still family owned and family run. Our obsessive attention to fit, to creating lasting quality, and to providing the best customer service – combined with our love for cool, casual-chic style – has brought us many devoted followers.
But they are more than that – they are also wild about coffee, beautiful meals, spontaneous road trips, long novels and great music. And we are passionate about friends, family, community, taking care of our planet and giving back. It’s all connected.
From the mouth of Paola: “Wooden Ships began with the merging of many of my life-long loves – literature, travel, fashion, and the environment. In 1992, I went on a trip to Indonesia to see the rainforest and the orangutans in Borneo. I had just spent a year doing grassroots campaigning for the environment, recycling and clean water. People were less receptive to these issues then than they are now and after a year,
She was burned out. Armed with a journal, a pile of books and my backpack from NOLS, I set off “to see the world” and…. basically never left Indonesia. She was blown away by the nature, the sense of freedom, the beauty and the possibilities. During that trip, she realized fashion could be more than a passion – it could be part of the work of her life.”
