THIS IS A SIGNE
A few weeks ago a friend reached out to me and told me about one of the projects he was passionately working on. His name is Sven Signe Den Hartogh. You may know him from his talented photographic eye, intruiging looks, artworks or writings. One thing that you must know about Sven is that he isn't just enjoying life, he is making life enjoyable.
''So listen up, I've been working on this brand that I want to launch. It's about raising awareness and take action on climate change.'' Sven put together a few pieces of clothing, which are all organic and ethically made, manufactured by energy generated from wind and solar power. ''We want to prove that artistic clothing made with love and a vision on expression don’t have to be expensive or damaging to the earth and the inhabitants'', Sven emphasized.
''So, why are you telling me this?'' I was a bit stunned since I actually never met Sven in person. I've only seen him perform once, but didn't take the opportunity to go talk to him. Nevertheless, we did start following eachother on social-media such as Instagram and Facebook.
As impressed as I was with all the work Sven had already put out for the bigger audience, so was Sven with my writing and poetic/romantic view on the things around me. ''Please pick out an item on the webshop and show it of your own way, I need your vision, your interpretation on what this brand can or has to be.''
And so I did. I agree with Sven's point of view on not only clothing, but the people around us. Using fair methods, materials, respecting those around us.
THIS IS A SIGN
The world has given us so much, and it simply keeps on giving if you are willing to keep your eyes wide open. A lot of damage has been done to the earth, to everything that lives, walks and talks on it. Let's not just enjoy life, make it enjoyable.
