Just before I left for Norway I met
up with Mikaela,
a journalist student of HIOA.
( Høgskulen i Oslo og Akershus)
Mikaela was working on an article
about the state of Norwegian consumer habits

the increasing middle class in
developing countries that also would like
to have their "piece of the materialism cake"

and what can be done to change our habits here in the west.
I showed Mikaela around on the Knitwear factory and
the metal workshop we work with in Nepal
and then we sat down for some Slow Fashion
talk, telling her about the value chain behind our brand
 A/BARENESS & how we try to implement sustainability in
all aspects of our business model.
Read the full story with bigger letters here-
It is in Norwegian...ke garne? 
( What to do as they ask in Nepali) 
Google translate? (:

Hello again Mr. Inbox. I wish to see a message 
like this again one day...
Maybe after some more weeks?
Will I ever get to receive it again??   
Meanwhile we will busy with a bunch of 
other activities. Being back in Norway 
is very hectic but super nice, even though it means
I never see the message from Mr.Inbox these days.
The pic above is actually an old screenshot
 from a time where I was 
thinking about writing about how nice a feeling it is
when you have reached or dived into
 the very end of your inbox.
Hahhaha- Those days are gone, but A/BARENESS
is growing day by day, so a big
to that instead! 


More info on our soon to happen Pop Up Shops
 very soon!
