Now that all our relationships are dematerialized, managed by algorithms driven by a single philosophy: profit. Now that the “image” and the appearance of it are replacing reality, it is becoming difficult to see the truth behind our screens.
Who are we really talking to? Who do we really buy from? Now that new technologies are leading us towards new horizons, craftsmanship, the real one, the one that is built on convictions, choices and original creation, is leading a real fight for its survival.
This year I wanted to show you what really exists behind the virtual presence of l’Araignée Gypsie. I wanted to show you, the human, the real one, who works with his hands (for real) and who puts his heart and care into the day-to-day work. In other words, people who have the will to lovingly transform carefully chosen materials into emotions to offer and share.
Moreover, I am happy to announce that I am no longer alone in this adventure because Nicolas, my sweetheart, has joined me and that today L’Araignée Gypsie has become a small family business.
I would like to thank here all the people who by their presence and love supported L’Araignée Gypsie this year,:
Karinne, my lifelong friend and Guillaume, my brother, my supermodels from the new collection,
Alexe my friend and sister-in-law for her precious help in production,
Rosemary, my friend and neighbour, for her great help in managing my Instagram account,
Raphael, my friend for his eye and his know-how as a videographer,
Nicolas, my partner, for his calm and support in facing my anxieties,
All my friends in particular and in general for their listening and support in times of doubt,
And finally, all my customers for the support to the craft creation they do through their choice of purchase.
As you may have understood, the craftsmanship at L’Araignée Gypsie is a story about love.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO ALL OF YOU
WISHING YOU A HAPPY END-OF-YEAR
FULL OF LOVE, WHAT ELSE?!
