Announcement   Our website: http://www.ounodesign.com & our blog:

For six years we have largely concentrated on vintage textile pillows. In 2011 we will be producing only higher end speciality pillows and our vintage scarf quilts. We are no longer focusing on pillows because the market will not pay for the actual value of handmade sustainable pillows; we simply cannot afford to make our high quality pillows any longer, or until the market is wiling to pay for them, as we were on occasion making less than minimum wage. The fact is, the quality of our pillows is far higher than what you can get from IKEA, yet we cannot compete with their Made In China prices.

Our sustainable leather bag line is on hold until new shipments of leather.

About Ouno Design:

Ouno Design is an artisanal design studio in the Vancouver, BC. We produce deluxe fashion and decor accessories from salvaged, recycled and new sustainable materials. We're part of the new wave of "westcoast modernism" and our emphasis is on the best of midcentury modern, 60s and 70s, especially Scandinavian and Japanese textile design. Please read our profile for more information about our aesthetics and about the sustainability of our practices, or visit us at www.ounodesign.com. If you find something on our site that you want but that is not featured in our Etsy shop, let us know and we'll upload it to Etsy right away.

We accept PayPal or will take credit card by phone. We ship only when payment is received. Thank you!

USA and INTERNATIONAL BUYERS:
There are no taxes at all on products shipped outside Canada to US or International buyers.
SHIPPING TO THE USA FROM CANADA is easy, trouble-free, fairly reasonably priced and pretty fast. Since all our products originate and are made in Canada, they are customs-exempt under NAFTA. NOTE: US customs still likes to have your PHONE NUMBER. Please provide it when you order for a faster delivery! Thank you.

Ouno Design: quality and wabisabi

From 2005 to 2009 Ouno Design consisted of Vancouver designers and artists Lindsay Brown and Sarah Gee. We produced textile-based homewares made by hand with repurposed high quality vintage textiles. After 2009 Sarah Gee left to pursue a full-time art career and Lindsay Brown is now the sole designer and operator of Ouno Design on a periodic basis only, largely doing only custom work. We had decided to stop producing well-made pillows because the market will not pay for the actual value of handmade sustainable pillows; we simply could not afford to make our high quality pillows any longer. The fact is, the quality of our pillows was far higher than what you can get from IKEA, with far greater longevity, but people expect IKEA prices or lower, and we could not compete with their Made In China prices.
