«Is the collaboration of husband and wife Andy & Laura Wortlock, who have a shared love of beautifully handmade products and an appreciation for enjoying the simple things in life.  At Once Was Lost we value authenticity, creativity, natural materials and ethical production.

Launching in late 2013, Once Was Lost was born from a belief that fairly traded products should also be the most beautiful and that the most effective way to overcome poverty and inequality in developing nations was to provide opportunity.  With a collection now including cotton, organic silk, cashmere and wool scarves, hand dipped ombre shawls, handwoven throws, sterling silver bracelets, bags and homewares, Once Was Lost merges simple, modern design with age old production techniques, partnering with talented artisans that share our committment to honest craftsmanship and elegant design.

Honouring the men and women who produce our exclusive collections, all our pieces, designed in Australia, are ethically and fairly made, so when you choose Once Was Lost, you not only receive a beautiful product, you know you have directly empowered and supported the communities of people who have lovingly produced each piece.»
