The concept behind Dragonfly has been in the making for years. My mother has been a source of inspiration, as well as having lived in different countries such as Indonesia, India, Kenya, Argentina, Switzerland, Sri Lanka, and many more throughout my childhood. it was an incredible experience being exposed to such a wide variety of cultures, religions, traditions, and people as well as getting insight to the way communities worked, the resources they have, what lacked. This became a quest of mine to see how I could give back to this wonderful and creative world of ours, bringing us closer together.
I have been working in the fashion industry for over 12 years. I love the passion involved in creating a collection. The colors, the trends, the silhouettes of the season, coming to life as due dates approach. I was looking to apply this same dedication to a project that merged people with similar passion, stemming from their cultural backgrounds and returning a helping hand to support their unique art/craft forms. My mother always had a keen eye in picking out beautiful, exclusive items through her travels around Asia, which in turn made people talk about them, creating a buzz. I joined forces with her, and with the help of several friends, this exciting venture was born.
Shopping at a more personal level as well as with a purpose, taking an active part to giving back. Dragonfly aims on raising living standards, improving basic needs by marketing of artisan products. Promoting their handicrafts to help preserve the cultural and ecological heritage of each region. A percentage of the money received will go directly into working on projects within the regions and people shown on the website so you see exactly were the money is going. You are a vital element to the process.
The dragonfly has been a subject of intrigue in every single continent it is found in, and with each civilization, has developed a unique meaning to it, its behavior and its lifestyle.
A symbol for change and change in the perspective of self realization; an emotional maturity to understand the deeper meaning of life. Maturity and Depth of character.
With elegance and grace, a Dragonfly accomplishes its objectives with utmost simplicity, effectiveness and strength. It is an inspiration to behold.
It can see 360 degrees around, which symbolizes the uninhibited vision of the mind and the ability to see beyond the limitations of the human self. As well as a man/woman’s rising from materialism to be able to see beyond the mundane into the vastness that is really our Universe, and our own minds.
Be part of our Vision.
