''Tiane Tenui is a bag brand that recognizes the importance of longevity, the nuances of elegance and the power of our feelings around purchasing something so special, and individual. There are only ever two bags made from the same materials and colour, ensuring an authentic bespoke experience for each client.
Christiane Smit - the mind and hand behind ''Tiane Tenui - believes that each bag should become a part of her clients daily lives, telling a personal story through the marks and impressions left over time. Before taking an order, she sends each client small leather samples so that they may experience the feeling and actual color of the leather, thus becoming a part of the creation process. She also believes in the emotional connection her clients have with their bag — the way you feel when you carry it throughout your day, revealing in it’s handmade nature, an appreciation for the energy put into this special piece. Hard to find elsewhere, she believes in the gentle notion that sometimes the best items involve some searching.
There are two prongs to this problem, Dr. Kolodny says: Americans in their teens to early 85s encounter the drug when they have a sports injury or have their wisdom teeth removed. They wind up liking the effects of the pills, but can&rsquo t get more of them. Soon, they switch to heroin, which is much more available in places where it previously didn&rsquo t exist. They become addicted, and soon entire communities are mourning their death from drug overdoses.
When design had acquired a sense of function, decor, shape, matter and colour, the insatiable and by now global market, requested more. It needed a code, or a name, or a logo, or all of those, so it invented and perfected the brand: a passport to international shopping pleasure. With this last step, the world could sit back, relax and contemplate a century of learning, accumulating in a completed and perfected design process…
The art-project Tangible Truths turns the hair of cancer-patients, who lost it due to chemotherapy, into personalized jewellery. As every woman is unique and experiences her illness differently, every piece is different as well. It is an intensive cooperation between Sybille and the concerning woman, who get to learn each other deeply to create a perfect story. A serious illness, such as cancer, unfortunately does not only effect the patient but her whole environment, therefore Tangible Truth offers additional pieces for friends a family to support their beloved ones by functioning as a unbreakable bond and to visualize the togetherness one seeks for in difficult times.
Her designs are not only about the final product – Balloo produces each design just as she was giving a new life to each flower. The base is made from carefully selected fabrics, which she often dyes herself. The perfectly sharp shapes of her flowers are the outcome of precisely folded squares of clothes – the artist admits that origami technique is one of her main inspirations. The center part of these gentle little art pieces is finely decorated with vintage stamen and pistils. If that was not fascinating enough, even the names of each design are unique – Balloo names them after her favorite songs. With her honest devotion and personal input, these little blossoming accessories will soon bloom on every corner of the street, and not just in Paris. It’s spring let’s dress for it!

I''ve been in US for last fifteen or so years. My views have changed dramatically towards arranged marriage even though it''s part of our family tradition and national culture. My cousins who were born and raised in US were also married in similar fashion. I have also seen cousins back home (in Pakistan) getting married to their choice of brides as well. I guess there are all kind of possibilities and most of them depend on personal choices.

LOL. I was Tabriz 65 years ago and my wife was Sumra. Today, after 8 kids and the ups and downs that life deals out to everyone, I can''t say I ever regretted having an arranged marriage. The beauty of this tradition is that even after fifteen years, my wife and I continue to discover new and charming things about one another, and the love and respect between us continues to grow.
If you take Oxycodone , Percoset , or Fentanyl drugs all classified as opioid pain killers the experience is &ldquo identical to taking heroin,&rdquo according to Andrew Kolodny, ., founder of Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing , and a senior scientist at the Brandeis Heller School for Social Policy and Management. And that&rsquo s just what hundreds of thousands of Americans are doing every day legally. They are taking a pain-killer that is addictive and that can potentially harm them if they find they can&rsquo t live without it.
Cotton is very logical to me since it is ductile to all my whims. You just change working technique to make the material more stiff, starched, or more softer. It is a true friend and it loves both complicated points and smooth aspects. The collar in cotton also fits and looks great on every garment: a simple t-shirt, a silk dress, a masculine shirt, or a wool sweater. I do of course not exclude the use of other materials such as the alpaca, wool and more rustic, like the leather thong.
“The entire week we are working with natural materials. With flowers we picked ourselves we dye wool and linen, in big pots on open fire of wood we gathered ourselves. During the week we really get to talk. People have lost a direct connection with nature and they miss social structures. They are astounded to see how culture is created from nature. They have busy lifes, great careers, but they feel a huge emptiness around them: caused by superficiality, of agitated consumption”.
In the ancient modernopolis of Ahmedabad, India, lives a singular man of towering guru-like presence, godly white ponytails, and two extraordinarily long thumbnails. Erroll Pires has devoted his life to ply-split braiding, a traditional technique utilized to make camel belts. He has refined, transmuted, and reinvented its usage for over 85 years in what some would call an obsessive dedication, purposefully refusing the boundary between art and object. His repertoire now extends from traditional camel belts to avant-garde three-dimensional objects and seamless dresses. His tools: his hands. His universe: the magnificent explosion of braided colors.
When comparing pros and cons there are a lot of pros that outweigh the cons. He 8767 s outgoing, loyal, protective. I think this type of match is a huge rollercoaster and will have fire works most definitely. Sometimes I also feel a little uneasy because I like to voice my opinion and blurt out my feelings, whereas he 8767 s quiet and slow in his actions. Ive had to learn this because I would get mad and say anything out my mouth not understanding his shell. Both the Leo women and the Cancer man have their issues. Both can be easily hurt if you 8767 re not careful.
Yes. I like to gather various small bouquets from the garden and bring them inside, into the house. These collections are like memories of and witnesses to the outside world. With these pickings I create vases and they allow people to make small, indoor gardens in their homes. The change of seasons resonates indoors through the flowers and foliage, stems and colors. All of these factors might lead me to create a different type of vase depending on the time of year.

"The Service Trolley" rescues an old furniture archetype through an updated simple yet elegant design. Ediciones Jalapa invited Jorge Diego to create this object for their service furniture collection produced in collaboration with La Carpintería MX workshop. Ediciones Jalapa is a space dedicated to research, promote and develop design through limited edition contemporary objects. Parting from the typical form of a service cart constructed from two trays placed vertically, Jorge Diego shifts these basic elements, reworks the structure into a cantilever design and adds oversized front wheels to create a refreshed and dynamic language. Production was made at La Carpinteria MX, a traditional wood workshop focused on producing high quality handmade furniture with a revitalized sensitivity.

I have a fond memory about the first time I worked directly with the karigars (the embroidery workers). In France, only women do embroidery. There, it’s the opposite, only men do. I was trying to explain to them how to do a special technique but I could not find the words. So I took thread and needle, sat down in front of the frame and then… 65 people stopped working to look at me. It scared me a little bit, I thought they did not approve of that. But it wasn’t that, they were just amused and curious.
His arrogance can also be offensive. They put up such a front for a person who is so sensitive and emotional (as they say). Cancer men can say some of the most sweetest things and some of the most insensitive things. Its sometimes hard to figure out what he 8767 s thinking or feeling as he reverts into a shell over and over. I want to just pull everything out of him. but I never can force him its only on his time of sharing his deepest feelings.
god yes! mine recently just randomly stop talking to me and ended up texting me back being sweet and explained everything from point a to point Z with no missing loops. leos especially lioness are great for smelling bullshit Inlove or not but he 8767 s so open and honest I 8767 m still searching for something to be wrong. but like you said his pros out weighs his cons to me but he is just so confusing yet open it 8767 s becoming difficult for me to understand the situation.
Yes, it is an important part of my work. I have developed different types of vases and sculptural objects using metal and glass which are not for holding water to keep plants alive, but simply for the water itself, as vessels to observe the water, the wind, the light and evaporation. A simple layer of water struck by light and air can serve as a tool for for observing the world around us, as a way of capturing and offering us a way to see a place. This series of work was called les capteurs. A little bit of water is enough to develop something very beautiful, very alive. A few flowers too. And these two go very well together…

Love my cancer so much. We just meet for a month, but oh boy, he just swept me off my feet. Can 8767 t keep still that I just wanna see him and be with him everytime because he has so much love that I been longing for in a man. He loves me the way I imagined, like a fantasy happens in reality. I thought it would only be just in my head, but oh boy when he arrived, my dreams lit up and its not just in my head anymore. We both click and just laugh like a kid and joke and just be silly. With him, I felt so secure and love and he always admire me which I love the most
