06 The textiles of Long Ga Village

Entering this village, we had a purpose and it was to dive right into the Miao culture, learn as much as possible and hopefully find some textiles that we can use for our next collection.

05 Long Horned Miao

It feels like forever that we've been travelling and we still hadn't been rural enough to reach any small villages!!

The Captivating Faces of Untold Stories

Could you imagine a world where we all believed in the same God and lived in the same housing and followed the same conventions of life. How dull it would be. This is a world full of languages, colours, sounds, songs and dances. One of mountains, deserts, forests and seas. Our way of living may seem […]

The Beauty of Indigenous Culture and why it should be preserved

The world is full of diversity when it comes to cultures and traditions. The varieties in languages, indigenous crafts, traditions and cultures point out to the rich heritage that can only be found in particular places in the world.

Sebastiao Salgado

He’s the man that would immerse himself within his subjects for years at a time; capturing the best of their world and sharing it with the rest of us through his black and white snapshots. Salgado captures will likely feel alien to most of us, however the images are imbued with no less than the spirit of […]
