La Luna Lädeli goes to Nyon! March 02 2018
La Luna Lädeli starts to travel to the French part of Switzerland!
I am extremely happy to be able to spend 3 days in Nyon at the Café Ex Machina, together with my friends Banu, Rui and Denis who have created a wonderful meeting space where to enjoy a good atmosphere, with excellent coffees, yummy cakes and fresh lunch.
I will be at the space before the entrance, with a selection of La Luna Lädeli treasures. The main focus of this Pop-Up is my big collection of hand-woven shawls all made in the context of social projects that secure ethical working conditions. I will have my computer with me, in case you are interested in seeing pictures of my visits to the weavers and hearing their stories.
You will have the chance to see, touch, feel and try hand-woven shawls in many possible materials (cotton, silk, linen, wool, cashmere...), colors and styles, all woven by skilled artisans in India and Nepal, and designed by young designers that bring a modern esthetic to a traditional craft.
Only a very small selection from one of the projects, WomenWeave, is available here online more as a sampler, as I believe that such a thing cannot be properly appreciated and chosen only through a picture. You have to feel it!
You can also check some more pictures of shawls in the Discussion section of the event on Facebook.
I will also bring the bamboo utensil sets that I believe everyone should have in their bags to avoid the use of plastic utensils.
The Love Travel Guides to India will also be available if you are considering exploring India and its crafts!
Possibly, if there is interest, I will bring a selection of Goddesswear Corduroy pants so that you can try them out and know your size and cut. If you plan to go and already know which pants you would like, let me know and I can bring them!
If you are from around there, it's a great chance to see you and get to see our products, and if you are from anywhere else, it's a great chance for an excursion to Nyon, a beautiful town at the border of the lake of Geneva, enjoying all the yummy goodies the Café Ex Machina has to offer.
I hope to see many of you there!
