CONSCIOUS SOURCING AND SLOW TRAVEL
Original Source and Supply was born from a passion for travel and the discovery of new crafts and cultures. Deepening an understanding of them through conscious sourcing, thoughtful developing and slow travel. Always in small quantities.
During these travels and inspired by life in Sri Lanka, hand sketched journals have been unfailingly kept, recounting tales of the journeys. They bring to life personal experiences of countries and cultures through illustrations. These are in turn captured on cards and prints and integrated into a collection of textiles and products collected along the way.
We believe that fair and responsible trade is our duty. Endeavouring to always use natural, ethically produced materials, conscious of the original source. Find out more about the company aims and transparency here.
My name is Martina, the creator of Original Source and Supply. After working as a designer for the European high street for many years, I decided to start something of my own, something more personal and aiming to have a slower lifestyle. This is the result – always a work in progress, I hope you like it.
Here’s a video of a trip to Bagru, India in October 2017 showing you some of what I do
