WHAT'S HAPPENING HERE?
Hemp/Organic Cotton underthings.
Never be not comfy.
Hello! Welcome here!
In early 2020 when life shifted for all of us, I made this website to be able to continue to sell my work. At the time, the only thing that made sense to me was making underwear. And I have been kept happily busy making almost exclusively underwear since then!
So here you can find some of my favourite underwear, and comfy cozy underthings.
My friend Wendy and I collaborate on Underwear Club, creating very special, one of a kind pieces, designed and sewn by me, and dyed with love and intention by her.
I occasionally offer small releases of clothing, zero waste items, and the natural fabrics that I use and love.
Sometimes my daughter shares her work here as well, you can find her offerings under Mooncat.
Sometimes you can find my work out in the world at local shops, shows or music festivals. For more info on where to find Moon Over Water in person, look here (coming soon)
I am grateful to create handmade, thoughtfully crafted garments for you.
Thank you for being here!
If you want to know more about me and take in the original thoughts I had for this page, keep reading...
I began making clothing to sell, as a way to help fund my semi-nomadic lifestyle in my earlier years. Eventually I settled down in North Ontario and began working farmers markets and music festivals, largely to find and connect with like minded people.
This little business has grown slowly. I have taught myself to make things through trial and error, and stubbornness and determination. And now, after over a decade, I'm still learning...and excited about it.
Sewing brings me joy. And working with recycled and natural materials is one small way I choose to participate in a conversation with people about how we are living in the world. Are we as consumers making conscious choices about what we buy? Are we thinking about what things are made of and where they come from? Are we thinking about why we even buy the things we buy?
I design clothing that I want to wear. I make useful household items that can be reused and add a touch of hand made beauty to home. All this, with a focus on using natural and sustainably grown fibres and a commitment to as little waste as possible.
Thank you for finding your way here and being a part of this conversation...
