LUCE is an amazing story of a little family, a mother and her three children. They were once in Bali and fell in love with the people of this little and so singular island. They decided to encourage the art of these crafts and share it.
Their story now extends to other countries, other people they had the privilege to meet with, other arts and creations.
Embroidery for life
Traditional clothes of Banjara women were greatly enhanced with these extraordinary embroideries. Today, thanks to Surya’s Garden, they assemble fascinating cushions covers and unique clutches. Their art finances a medical dispensary and a scholar program and a salary to the embroiderers.
Moms meet every day at the Bali Life workshop. There, they sew extraordinary dolls and funny animals, traditional bags and make jewelry… All their creations getting as pretty as original.
Thanks to this work, they do save their children from the streets
and are able to offer them an education at Bali Life Center.
The slipper’s master
He looks like a giant in his tiny workshop of this famous Moroccan souk. He speaks loudly and laughs just as hard. Sitting on a tiny stool, he cuts and sews every day of the year the most beautiful slippers in the world. His obsession: that his work is recognized at its fair value and that his customers are more than satisfied. Done !
