Welcome! My name is Jaana. I am the creator of mukavaolo, together with my partner Dave, who encouraged me to start selling my creations.
Mukavaolo was born in Waikanae, New Zealand. However, the name "mukavaolo" comes from the Finnish language (mukava olo), meaning feeling cosy, comfortable.
Mukavaolo clothing and bags are always made with cotton or linen (natural fibres only), whether recycled or new materials.
Each item is a one-off, with different colours and prints, but the design itself may be repeated. Also, the clothes are made with French seams rather than overlocked.
Check out my Instagram page via "Instagram salojaanam" and feel free to comment and share!
I have a larger selection of items available for sale, including jewellery, at the Mahara Midweek Market in Waikanae on Tuesdays, and at the Waikanae Beach and Te Horo Markets.
Mukavaolo welcomes you to its warm embrace of soft fabrics, beautiful colours and prints. I hope you will enjoy this cosy feeling, too.
