Introducing new collection!

My new collection is finally ready!!! I thought I would never see the end of this project.

As for the past collection, it is composed of 3 lines inspired by 3 places precious to me Timbuktu (Mali), Montmartre (Paris), Brooklyn (New York).

Today I launched the cushions online at my etsy store, and I hope to finish launching the rest of the collection in the next few days.
So today I am presenting you my pillow collection.




Thank you for viewing!!!

STEAMPUNK SALON SALOON

I have exiting news folks!! "Steampunk Salon Saloon", The 3rd edition of Steampunk by Brooklyn Indie Market will be held on the 24th of september at the Water Lounge in Brooklyn at 3PM.



The steampunk movement totally fascinates me, and I have to say that this is the type of innovative events that makes me love Brooklyn so much.

For those of you who are not familiar with the steampunk movement, here is how Kathy Malone; the director of The BIM (The Brooklyn Indie Market) and avant-guarde organizer of the event defines it:


"Steampunk is Victorian-era science fiction. Anything that can be envisioned as a part of a scientifically-advanced “steam” era can be prop- erly described as steampunk. Steampunk finds its origins in literature, going back to the works of Mary Shelley, Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. The term was coined in the late 1980s by sci-fi author K.W. Jeter as a bit of a tongue-in-cheek joke. The moniker nonetheless stuck, and has found itself attached to an entire array of movements and works, each trying to realize today’s technology with the 19th century’s resources."

So if you are up to some time traveling into the past-future, then join us for "Steampunk Salon Saloon"on the 24th of september at the Water Lounge. The time machine will start at 3 PM, and Kathy Malone promised to bring us back to earth around 9 PM,.. unless we don't want to come back anymore :)

And for those interested in volunteering at the BIM this year, please drop me a line.

Malian proverbs.

I will be introducing my collection in a few days.
As I am busy adding the last touches, I do not have much time to blog.
I am taking a few minutes to share a few Malian proverbs with you.
Enjoy!




No matter how long a log stays in the water, it won't become a crocodile.

It's better to look ahead rather than focusing on where we have tripped before.

The bee forced into a beehive will not make any honey.

Whatever the taste of the meal, don't swallow your tong.

It is from a tiny seed that the biggest tree was born.

I know, it's not september yet :)

Well, I really love holiday!! It inspires me so much.
Today, I have decided to take an actions that means a lot for me:
I have signed up at amnesty international to take action to protect humans rights.
Everyone can register here: Amnesty International

Recycle for Amnesty

I also took the decision to look for a volunteer job in a human right organization,
and this makes me feel good!!!
So if any of you know about an opening at amnesty international, human right watch or any other
human right organization, please feel free to let me know.
This quote resume pretty well why I am taking this decision!


I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.
