Onana – the origin story

Why a pineapple you ask? It all started as a nickname given to her by her littlest brother. As a tot, he had trouble pronouncing ‘Eleanor’ and so he called his big sis ‘Onana’. And one day, their French au pair at the time, turned to Eli and asked, “Why is your brother calling you a pineapple?”

Cut to many years later and the nickname (alongside a happy pineapple) is now a thriving knitting business.

Meet the gals!


Learning her knitting superpowers from her mum, Eli studied Biomedical Engineering and Communications. When she’s not knitting, you can find her belting out show tunes, finding the best bubble tea places around town and dreaming big. Really big!
