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.
