ONLING THE ULTIMATE DANISH HYGGE CLOTHING…

Onling, the ultimate Danish Hygge clothing is an online shop full to the brim of all you would embrace in Hygge wear.

Knitting atmosphere with yarn, needles and zippers

You immediately think natural exquisite materials which make you look and feel great.

Not only do they sell clothes but they also sell wool and run workshops and events ( although not very local for us Brits).

One particular class which has totally sold out and caught my eye was ‘knitting class for experienced knitters, learn to read English patterns’. 

Chabel hat with stripes of light grey, dark grey and dusty rose, made in wool and alpaca

Onling say “We believe that the fashion industry needs to change by producing better products that last longer and are environmentally friendly.

At Önling we select fabrics that leave the smallest possible impact on the environment, as we know that a piece of clothing will not stand a chance of becoming the modern consumer’s favorite, if it is not responsibly produced.

We select the best, natural fabrics for our clothes. We only use organic cotton, we buy left-over fabrics – called deadstock – from other brands, and we incorporate sustainable fabrics like bamboo, Lyocell and fish leather into our limited collections. We only produce 200 pieces of each style, which means that you will get a unique product, when you buy Önling.

In addition to that, we have completely avoided plastic in our packaging, as we do not want to add to the plastic islands floating around in the pacific ocean. All our products are wrapped in recycled paper bags and even though this might sound like small thing, for us it is big. We have saved the environment for 70.000 polybags by now, and we are proud to take on this responsibility.”.

Lets hope others follow this lead and become as environmentally friendly as Onling.

Choosing natural fibres for sustainable design

HYGGE THE FREE WAY…

Hygge the FREE way.

The old-fashioned saying ‘The best things in life are free’, can be achieved if you want to change your home into a Hygee home.

According to Meik Wiking the author of The Little Book of Hyggehygee is humble and slow, it is choosing rustic over new, simple over posh, and ambience over excitement. simplicity and modesty are central to hygge’.

You can soon change your style of home into a hygge home. Go through each of your rooms and write down how you would change it, what little things might make it more hygge, what accessories or furniture you want to finish it the hygge way.

Home is where the heart is, you can transform a room with the simplest of items which you could get for FREE or for very little by checking your local FREE pages or popping to your local car boot. If you just enter what you want into Google with for free after it you would be surprised what comes up.

Summer hygge means more outdoors so look at your furniture outside and think of ways you can transform them into something more cosy with simple throws. Add candles and the right lighting and carry the lights on into the patio door to extend your room. Summer is probably the easiest time of year to enjoy hygge.
