Feeling the Chain

"Oh! dreadful is the check - intense the agony

When the ear begins to hear, and the eye begins to see;

When the pulse begins to throb, the brain to think again;

The soul to feel the flesh, and the flesh to feel the chain."

(Emily Bronte - English Author, 1818-1848)


Anand, our icon model since our first catalogue, is wrapped in a silk scarf made with a hand embroidery.

This artcraft is done by ladies involved in several workshops that we have settled with GURIA, a Human Rights organisation fighting against the sexual exploitation of women and children, particularly those forced into prostitution and trafficking.

Each scarf is unique and made in sarees provided by many women in Benaras who take this opportunity to get rid of pieces that they brought in order to celebrate happy moments, festivals or parties.

Those accessories carry traces of happiness in their yarns...

RED HALO is a collection of household linen based in Benaras (Varanasi - India) providing work to people who were living with difficulties and education to children.

Anand accepted to show his body knowing that the series of pictures will be decent as usual.

He also did it for the purpose of this brotherhood and happiness chain as this is a way to catch the attention on this fight for Human Rights and human dignity.

Thank you to all of you who gave such a positive response to this campaign.
