I absolutely love my socks! They are shockingly soft and so pretty. The colors are vibrant and thoughtfully dyed. I'll definitely be buying from this seller again. 😍
Hello! My name is Bonni Walquist and I am the artist and curator behind Bona Roba Sundries. My aesthetic is carefully curated to combine classic style with contemporary romance. Photography and clothing are my go to mediums and I bring excitement and passion to every project.
Due to Covid-19 I have been unemployed since March, 2020. I have spent this time applying to jobs and learning new skills. I stumbled upon dye and was immediately enchanted. I love researching techniques and color palettes. It's been a fun new extension to my skill set and I hope you enjoy the process and the product.
All clothing items are one of a kind wearable works of art. I want each individual piece to feel special while also not contributing to waste and fast fashion. Each item is meticulously hand selected for quality, durability, and relevant design. I believe in breathing new life into items that have obvious potential but are in need of a little TLC. Each item is hand dyed using fiber reactive dyes and a variety of techniques. My goal is to create clothing that is functional and makes the wearer feel feel like a beautiful work of art (because you are!).
All photography is created through use of film and experimental techniques and all prints will be signed and of limited numbered editions. My goal is to keep print runs small because I want my art to feel special. You have taken the time and spent your hard earned money on my art. I want you to have something limited and unique. There are enough mass produced items out there.
Every order will be sent with a surprise postcard from my vast collection with a hand written note from me expressing my appreciation for your order.
Thank you for taking the time to read this page. Much love to you!
Hi! My name is Bonni Walquist and I love to make things that bring joy! My main love is film photography but I am having such a blast finding clothes to dye and choosing my color palette. I am also a mixed media artist and avid reader.

Items are hand dyed the colors may fade and shift over time. I take every precaution to see that this happens minimally, if at all, and that colors shift in an appeasing fashion. . . as any quality dyer should. All items should be washed separate the first 2-3 washes and always cold and on gentle cycle. Hang dry if possible or dry on low heat. All items are modern rejuvenations and may have slight imperfections (that will be noted).
I promise to be forthcoming and meticulous in the descriptions of my items for sale. Please contact me with any further questions you may have. I am always happy to chat about clothes!
I want you to be happy with your purchase. If you are not I do accept returns. Again, these items are gently used and may have slight wear and/or imperfections. These garments are hand dyed camouflaging most imperfections.
Items will be shipped in 1-2 weeks.
