1.  the state of being aware of and responsive to one's surroundings.

You may have heard the term conscious creation or conscious products before.  Conscious products are products made by hand or small scale production and are made with care, love and passion.

Our evolution is accelerating.  We are all waking up to ourselves and the world around us.  We are becoming more aware and more conscious.  People are more in touch with their spiritual nature and superficial tendencies are becoming much less desirable as we navigate through our own life experiences.  We no longer think the way we use too, eat what we used to eat and certainly don't conform to the old societal ideas that once shaped the very idea of our lives.  And it's still evolving.  So if we're evolving, then surely the products we use must evolve with us.  This is what led me to create Haus of Meraki.

The word Meraki [pronounced may-rah-kee] is a term used to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or love - when you put "something of yourself" into what you're doing, whatever it may be.  Simply put, this is the intention behind all Haus of Meraki products.  As esoteric as it sounds, our entire ethos is about connection.  I am connected to you.  You are connected to me.  We are each connected to every living thing.  But people are largely creatures of habit.  We have forgotten our true nature and the source of power we have at our disposal.

Haus of Meraki products are all about this but we go much further.  We recognise that when we feel connected and grounded, we are a force to be reckoned with.  And it is my mission to remind you of this every day and whenever you use our products.

As I began to design and make products, there was this constant awareness of how it will impact everything around me.  Conscious creation is the very core of my existence.  It's these same factors that influence my own life.  I am the product!

The 5 most important factors I consider when making a new product or developing a new product for the range are simple:  How will my product effect people?;  How will my product effect the planet?;  How will my product transmit energy?;  How will my product empower those who use them?  And what is its ultimate purpose?

For example, our homewares remind you that you can weave the beautiful pattern and fabric of your own life.  You are what shapes your world and the world you live in.  

Our aprons reinforce the message to nourish ourselves from the inside out.  We are all perfect energetic beings - but some of us forget it due to simply adulting.  Do things and focus on things that nourish your energy, not deplete it whatever form it takes.

Our contemporary candles were created with the intention to remind you that you can transcend, you can overcome, you can raise your vibration or sit in your stillness with a greater conscious awareness of yourself and your surroundings.  How you expand out into the universe is your empowerment.

I am a co-creator in tandem with the universe.  I understand that everything that happens to me is of my own making.  I get back from the world, what I put out there.  I'm playing my part in the great playbook called life!

But enough with the heavy stuff.  Above all else, sometimes we just want beautiful things to look at and use.  At Haus of Meraki, we guarantee that you will always get a beautifully hand-made product that was crafted with soul, creativity and love.

Each product has its own loving purpose, intention and energy to go out into the world.

With gratitude,

Danielle Covalea - Founder & Creator, Haus of Meraki
