ONAR, meaning ‘dream’ in Ancient Greek, is a brand based in Finland that introduces a contemporary and minimal take on Nordic craftsmanship. Founder & designer Irene Kostas is from a family of artisans who have passed down the skills and knowledge of working with leathers and shearlings. ONAR respects the beauty of animals and only works with suppliers who can guarantee the leathers are a by-product of material that would otherwise have gone to waste in the food industry. The vibrant leather colours are created by vegetable dyeing instead of chrome-tanning to avoid harsh chemicals that are damaging to the environment. ONAR is committed to respecting people, the environment, and animals from construction to consumer.
