Otara has launched the online platform, www.whoweare.lk, that shares the products of local creators from around our beautiful island and promotes Sri Lankan ingenuity across the globe! Promoting Sri Lanka and Sri Lankan-made has been her passion for the last 25 plus years – and her mission this time is to showcase the creativity and talent of creators of small businesses, enabling their products to be available to a larger and more diverse audience.
As well as supporting local communities, ‘Who We Are’ is committed to championing a conscious lifestyle, meaning all items are ethically sourced, cruelty free and sustainable. There is a stunning and diverse range in the collection – from jewellery and gifts, to fashion and home wares, as well as food, beauty and wellness. Conscious consumerism is at the forefront of this venture, along with the pledge to support creators and their communities through fair and just pricing.
‘Who We Are’ also provides an opportunity for craftspeople and artisans from all corners of Sri Lanka to market their products more widely, and to elevate their businesses in the process. Not only will this support the growth of our country’s economy, but Sri Lankan talent will be more accessible both locally and globally!
“I see a future where we contribute in more sustainable and ethical ways to our communities, where people live meaningful lives and where we have a greater connection to nature.’ says Otara Gunewardene
‘Who We Are’ promotes a conscious lifestyle, the Sri Lankan way! Not too much, not too little – just the right amount of local, eco-friendly, sustainable, ethical, stylish, healthy and happy!
