The Full Menu of Rights

"I am not interested in picking up crumbs of compassion thrown from the table of someone who considers himself my master.

I want the full menu of rights."

(From "You Said a Mouthful" by Bishop Desmond Tutu - South African bishop & activist, b.1931)

 

Anand, our icon model since the 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.

Some of you are supporting this campaign since the biggining and we take this opportunity to thank you all.
