The gift that last all year
Hello November, hello Christmas Season.
Hum, …. This is what come to my mind about Christmas this year. I really like this season because I like to search and get presents for my family. It is not always easy but once it is done I can’t wait to share this moment with them. But this year, times are uncertain and people are cautious about what they are going to purchase in part because of a lower budget.
One of my goal with Dragons Are Real has always been to offer products that will last over the seasons, the years. In addition of the care I put in the material I select I made every piece, one by one to ensure a high quality. It is not about the quantity but about the quality.
With Dragons Are Real, the quality is about the technic but also about a story. The material are selected because they tell a story, how it was made, where does it come from, why this fabric. Everyone likes stories, through books, series, films, music, antique stuffs, photos, perfume. We are surrounded by stories, ours, the ones we remember, the ones we create, the one we are curious to hear from others.
I have a story for all my products. The designs, the assemblage of colours, the moment when I made them are saying something for me. And I like the idea that they are a source of stories for you.
A Christmas gift shouldn’t be something we wrap, unwrap and quickly forget in a corner. It is something chosen with care, with an intention to show the appreciation, the love we have for the person who receive it.
In this article and in the coming weeks I will show you what you can see in my online shop and I hope inspire you to find the gift you want to offer for a specific person.
I will start with the main character of Dragons Are Real’s adventure, the dragon !
If you wish to know (or be reminded of) the story of how I created the dragons, I invite you to read these article : Dragons, Dragons Chapter 2, Dragons Chapter 3 and the Story of Eliza and Chusi the Flower Dragon .
Next time, it will be about Fairies !
