I worked most of yesterday, with some fun and interestng projects I'm involved in. So me and Kaisa worked in her lovely studio during the day. On my way home I cykled to the shore and sat for a while on a bench and looked out at the sea and felt this is where I belong. My favorite café, Tuhannen tuskan kahvila, opened yesterday. The café is only open during the summer. So I popped by and sat in the garden enjoying some applejuice and a lovey bun.
Today it is grey and it's raining, so a perfect day to continue work.
THIS is a very good social experiment. People do care when they know. I have often wondered who these people are who buy their clothes from cheap markets and never question the origin of their cheap garments. Do they not know? Or do they not care? I am involved in the Fashion revolution, please join in as we can make a difference and we can afford to buy clothes that are not made by slaves or under awful conditions.
Why do we need a fashion revolution? Because, on 24 April 2013, 1133 people died in the Rana Plaza catastrophe in Dhaka, Bangladesh. A further 2500 were injured. They were killed while working for familiar fashion brands in one of the many ‘accidents’ that plague the garment industry.
Be curious, find out, do something.
I had lost one of my favorite necklaces by Pilgrim, I seldom loose things, but for some reason this necklace has gone missing. So guess how happy I was when I stumbled upon the exact same necklace at the local fleamarket the other day. It only cost a few euros (I think I payed something closer to 40 when I bought it years ago) so I decided to buy it and here it is, around my neck.
