Thinker, maker & mender.
Hi! I’m Louisa and I live in Oslo, Norway.
I'm a philosopher by training, with a long-time love for knitting and sewing. That has lead me to pursue a more thoughtful and ethical wardrobe. And not least, to embrace mending as both a practical necessity and a creative challenge.
I started the Worn Values blog as an exploration into slow fashion, wondering what ‘ethical’ and ‘sustainable’ really mean in the context of our own wardrobes and the fashion industry at large.
As I see it, slow fashion is about valuing the clothes on our backs. It is about questioning the origins of our clothes, honouring the resources and craftsmanship that went into making them, and celebrating the well-made, well-worn and mended.
Along the way, I hope to inspire and empower you too, in exploring your own version of slow fashion – whether that means handmade, long-worn, mended or thoughtfully acquired clothes.
Together we can move mountains.
How it started
You can read more about me and Worn Values in this interview on the Temple of Knit blog.
You can also read how the blog started in my very first post:
Workshops & collaborations
I am available for workshops on mending. I am also always open for interesting collaborations around the themes of slow fashion, sustainability, textiles and wool.
For more about workshops or any other questions or ideas, please get in touch. I would love to hear form you!
Kurs & samarbeid
Jeg er tilgjengelig for kurs i reparasjon, og spesielt stopping/bøting av håndstrikkede plagg. Jeg er også alltid åpen for interessante samarbeid omkring bærekraftig mote, tekstil og ull.
Ta kontakt for mer informasjon om kurs, eller andre spørsmål eller ideer til samarbeid. Jeg vil gjerne høre fra deg!
