About The Far Woods:
We are sisters Nina and Sonya Montenegro, the designers and makers of The Far Woods. We live on a small organic farm outside of Portland, Oregon, and formalized our creative collaboration in 2013. The things we make reflect our deepest desires about the world. We seek to contribute to a great Culture Shift in which there is a land ethic, a reverence for nature, a rejection of the dominant throw-away mentality, and direct connection to where our food and the things we use come from. Many of our artworks serve as educational tools and inspiration for reconnection to nature, food, and community. Our practice crosses disciplines, including teaching handcraft skills, beekeeping, and growing food, to work toward an ecologically-viable and socially-just future.
