Weaving visions into reality

Hey there fellow Earthling,

My name is Roosa, and I'm the creative force behind Maana Crafts.

My passion is to make beautiful and unique clothing with sustainable, natural materials, and to bring my vision into reality. It is my way to take part in protecting our home planet.

There is something raw and beautiful about creating garments using only three elements: pair of hands, yarn and a simple tool, which in my case is a hook-headed needle. It has been believed among most indigenous peoples that all things are alive and sacred, including human handiwork. I strongly connect with this thought - it signifies that by wearing clothes made by hand you are literally carrying the love and energy that has been put into those garments. I'm so happy it's becoming more popular to support handmade and choose sustainable options: it means, among other great things, more people having opportunity to do what they love. And most of all, it’s amazing news for Earth.

Before starting my own small business in 2019, I studied nature, environment and sustainability for a few years. I was building a better and deeper relationship with nature and learned to identify and use natural materials diversely. For example, I was (and still am) fascinated to study the therapeutic and medicinal use of native plants, or to explore the world of natural dyes. There was a long period when I was completely hooked on hand-dyeing yarn and fabric with plants, lichen and mushrooms, that I had gathered myself from nearby forests. I can say it is a world of endless surprises.

I learnt crochet from my mother, who is also a professional sewer. I'm deeply grateful that I've been able to receive the knowledge on handicrafts that have been passed on for generations. However, the most effective way of learning for me has simply been by trial and error. This technique has taught me so much about patience and perseverance!

Everything you find in my shop is designed and handcrafted by me. I use only natural fibers in my work, and spend much time sourcing the most suitable materials for each design.

If you’d like to collaborate, feel free to reach out to me with any ideas, visions, or projects. If you're interested in ordering a tailored piece, please send me a message on Etsy or go to maanacrafts.com/pages/custom-orders.

Love,
Roosa
