We at Of Happiness X 40 believe that happiness is a lifestyle and a state of mind.
Happiness can be found in almost every moment we live. The way how, may be unique and vary by the situation, but what is sure is that happiness and balance can be found. We want to be a Brand that helps to create happiness and wellbeing in Life while sustaining and valuing Nature and all its beings. We want to spice things up a bit and remind people of all the colours of life with our colourful, unique designs. The clothes we make are durable and great in quality! We use sustainable materials, partly recycled, partly organic.
OHX40® wants to help people remember that happiness is something that is already there. It may be a calm moment of meditation, a run in a park with dear friend or anything, that brings happiness in that moment. There are 40 ways, you choose which ones are yours.

Sonja is the SUSTAINABILITY SPECIALIST behind OHX40® brand
Sonja believes whole-heartedly in cultivating compassion for our planet and
all living beings by making better decisions in business and in our
“As a sustainability specialist in OhX40 I am connecting purpose-driven
business, environmental and ethical stewardship and balanced human
wellbeing. I’m safeguarding our yoga wear and products to be sustainable
in every aspect and at each stage of their lifecycle. This means that we
are sourcing organic and/or recycled fabrics, making sure no harmful
chemicals are used, re-using textiles waste, and designing lasting
products, which we are happy to take back and upcycle into something new
after the product is no longer serving its original purpose. Our
products are designed and crafted in Finland, by the people we know put
a lot of love into making them. Love is reciprocal, so we also want to
support their work and their unique skills in craftsmanship.
I’m also working as a Ph.D. researcher at the Faculty of Management in
Tampere University, where I’m studying how businesses can mobilize and
manage sustainability transformations. As a co-founder of Love
Foundation Helsinki, I’m collaborating in a non-profit network aiming to
advance sustainability transformations in the urban community through
the means of art and creative culture.”
“I’ve been practicing different yoga styles for five years and after
finishing my Ph.D. research I will pursue my dream of yoga teacher
training. Until then, I’m a grateful and curious student of Mesimarja.”
