Oh My Handmade
Lunenburg, Nova Scotia
Ana by Oh My! Handmade is a line of accessories and home goods dedicated to preserving the handmade legacy of Ana Brom. Ana was a gifted textile artist who once designed clothes for stars like Marlon Brando in Hollywood, she was also mentally unwell and died with her creative legacy unfinished in 2000 while her daughter Stephanie struggled with mental illness. Ana's grand-daughter Jessika, an entrepreneur and leader in the handmade community, is weaving both of these stories together into a collection and social enterprise. Each piece in our first collection is a digital reproduction of original textile art on silk or cotton dyed by Ana between 1985-2000. Profits from this line will be used to document Ana's legacy and create income opportunities for women living with mental illness.
