“Every second is of infinite value”
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe – German Playwright, Poet, Novelist and Dramatist. 1749-1832)

Every second became so important in the process of each item of our collections.
Every second can change everything.
Every second is holding the hope of women and men involved there…

This woolen scarf is made with an aari embroidery, it involves weavers and embroiderers who were struggling with their workshops.
RED HALO is a collection of household linen based in Benaras (Varanasi – India) providing work to people who were living with difficulties and education to children.

“Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn! Look to this Day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all the Verities and Realities of your Existence.
The Bliss of Growth, The Glory of Action, The Splendor of Beauty; For Yesterday is but a Dream, And To-morrow is only a Vision; But To-day well lived makes Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness, And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day! Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!”
(Kalidasa – Indian sanskrit poet and dramatist, 5th century ad)

Since several seasons I take most of the pictures of our collections on the upper terrace which is on the top of our office in Varanasi (Benaras) in front of this amazing wall which keeps traces of each monsoon and which is magnified by a natural light.
Those fashion photographies are not as simple as they pretend to be, each is dwelling with a real social work.
Among the many people involved there, Anand who is modeling for our catalogue since the begining of the company is escaping for a while his tough condition of boatman on the Ganges and, using his dark colour skin complexion breaks a social taboo in India.
The fabric of this tablecloth is in pure linen, it involves handloom weavers of Varanasi struggling with their workshops and the embroidery inspired by the Mughal style is done in our workshop.

“If the rose at noon has lost the beauty it had at dawn, the beauty it had then was real.
Nothing in the world is permanent,and we’re foolish when we ask for anything to last.
But surelywe’re still more foolish not to take delight in it while wehave it.”
(From “The Razor’s Edge” by W. Somerset Maugham)
