Sári Szász Komlós is an ecological weaver, a student of herbal medicine, aspiring doula and herb farmer living with unceded Gumbaynggirr land.
A desire to reclaim ways of living that honours people and our planet has led me to growing food, plant medicines and weaving sustainable textiles. Remembering the skills needed to live in harmony with Nature so that future generations have a thriving planet and community to participate in, inspires me everyday to make with my hands, grow food + medicine and learn about traditional ways.
Healing through ancient wisdom which honours human beings as part of the Web of Life , has led me to studies in Western Herbal Medicine, Ayurveda, Yoga and birthkeeping. Bringing together ancestral skills, wise womxn ways and Vedic knowledge for the reclamation of healthy and peaceful cultures, grounded in a strong social and ecological justice ethic that is constantly assessing how to practice these things with integrity as a white migrant living on stolen land.
My path evolved through various animist adventures and reflections. An ongoing process of uncovering the following:
✷ How can textiles, farming and ancestral skills invite reciprocal relations with Nature?
✷ How can herbal medicine and holistic practices guide us to vibrant health so that we can be of service to the world?
✷ How do we live and embody ways that meaningfully repair planetary wellbeing and our environment?
The weaving and fibre studio is currently relocated to our home which is a beautiful hand-built cottage in the forest. Once compacted paddocks are being regenerated using practices that centre around biodiversity, soil health and increasing water in the landscape .We relocated from the Snowy Mountains and are starting our farming enterprise all over again, in a new climate and new place. It takes time to build relations with the land but everyday we are planting seeds and giving this place our presence and love.
We imagine this landscape to be a space for land-based healing and sustainable skill nurturing for others. A place of weaving and medicine making and experimenting. Somewhere for bodies to gather to practice old ways. To reconnect and find stability, so we can use our wellbeing in service to our sacred work and in service to social + environmental justice.
Sári weaves commissions so if you have a desire for something you’d like handwoven and bespoke, please get in touch.
Thank you for being here, for supporting us and watering the seeds of revolution together.
