Ound

“this is a project about nature, about silk
dyed with handmade pigments obtained
from food waste and plants, and about
hand-knitted undyed wool.” - Paula Delgado

Ound is a seasonless practice of thoughtful essentials that evolves through passion and investigation. Evoking moments of intimate creation and deep connection, ound’s collections consist of garments that are precious to the eye and sensual to the skin, with mindfulness and quality that will stand the test of time. At ound, we specialise in naturally dyed silk dresses and undyed woollen pullovers and cardigans. The collection is rooted in the notion of a humble luxury and integrity of making that runs in accordance with our inner natures and with respect to the natural world.
