Mariya Janashia

Mariya is a maker and fashion designer who is passionate about ethical sourcing and reuse. Originally from Georgia, she’s now based in Auckland. When she’s not creating, you’ll find her out enjoying nature or at the local market getting inspired about her next seasonal meal.

Lauren Meddings

Lauren is passionate about the great outdoors and loves nothing more than spending time in New Zealand's rural far north. You'll usually find her out running, soaking up the natural environment, or with her nose in a book when she's not writing or putting together a clip for radio.
