It’s SO long since I posted last time – we have been in Kathmandu, and we have made new brand pictures and are selling these great styles to shops now
On the picture you see our organic bedding from India – and our handmade throws in cashmere from Nepal – all made in a social sustainable way – I’m SO proud
…but I need to update just a little – so here we go:
At the care by me design studio we have worked on Christmas for the past 2 weeks now – to be sure we can deliver great packages and experience for our customers. We really hope that our great products will be on a LOT of wish-lists this Christmas as that is equal more jobs for the women we work with in Kathmandu. Check out our webshop here – fortunally several women already did their Christmas shopping and we have send special presents all over the world - THANK you<3 /Camilla
We LOVE christmas and we always have to many ideas of things we need to do. If you need a little inspiration you can check out our Pinterest boards – this is where we collect most of our inspiration:
I’m So happy!
Last week our project in Kathmandu got approved as a development project from Danida (A part of Danish foreign ministry ) The objective of Danida Business Partnerships is to create jobs, strengthen competitiveness and promote corporate social responsibility (CSR) in developing countries - This is a great recognition of the work we have done the last two years, and it means in practice that we will get financial and human support to continue the work we have started. It is truly a great help, and i’m so happy and honered – and I will do my very best to create more education and good working conditions for both young and elderly women in the future.
Besides this great news we also attended TWO events this weekend:
We were invited to the Blickfang Copenghagen exhibition – it was a great honor to be part of this event – celebrating new designers Heres is what Blickfang writes about the event:
“Discovering innovative labels, meeting over 200 designers in person, sampling products, trying on outfits and best of all, buying them directly on the spot. blickfang showcases furniture, jewellery and fashion from the young and international design scene, apart from mass goods and mass production. The designers are present and can answer questions and offer products that style up our life and make it more beautiful.”
At the same time Janet Bray Attwood NY Times bestselling co-author of The Passion Test, wearing, and talking very positive about care by me another place in Copenhagen, at the ELEVATE2013 - i’m SO grateful to her, and so sorry I was not there to thank her in person – I need to write a letter! It makes such a big difference for a small sustainable brand like ours that woman cares – and finds passion about helping and supporting!
In addition to the above great news we are busy with Christmass – and i look forward to share some of our pictures very soon!
- best wishes Camilla
Post from Erika Peraltas Facebook:
We are in the process of preparing Christmas sales, hopefully there’s a lot who put some of our great products on their wish list this year – so we can educate and recruit even more women in Nepal and India.
While we prepare for Christmas, we are also in the process of finalizing our ss 14 collection – I look forward to share this with you!
I love christmass, and at the carebyme studio we are very happy to start early One of the first things we do is make the Christmas schnapps – it’s great to do it now – then it can rest for two month and become really good!
Below I have pasted Amalies recipe – my favorite – ENJOY!
Amalies Christmas schnapps:
1 bottle of vodka 40%
2 table spoons of sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
14 cardamom seeds
3 star anise
1. Sugar, cinnamon sticks and cardamom seeds is put in a jar
2. Pour over the vodka, and put the lid on the jar (it is very important that it closes completely)
3. Let it rest for 24 hours
4. After 24 hours, you need to wash a big (preferably ecological) orange, and peel of the skin in one long beautiful string.
5. Leave it for 24 hours more
6. Now you filter the schnapps through a coffe filter and pour it on a beautiful bottle .
7. To make it even more beautiful put back in the used orange peel.
Decorate the bottle as you wish – and give it as a present or save it for special guests.
Today we had our first open house event in our small design studio, and Even though we did not expected to many guests, we did our very best to make it cozy and nice for those who came. It was VERY cozy!
Although the sun was shining, we had put reindeer skins outside and we had lit a single torch, I must admit that I’m beginning to look forward to Christmas!
We had our newest collection and also some great deals. Below is a small collage of the day.
This Saturday’s national fundraising of breast cancer – and we are proud to be involved locally and generally. That is why I have created this campaign which gives 10% discount for you and at the same time 10% to breast cancer research.
If you wish to treat yourself or someone you care about in the same time you are supporting a good cause – then shop before on Sunday and use the discount code “bryster”
