SLOW FACTORY BROOKLYN NEW YORK
Independent design and fashion label Slow Factory launches its first storefront in Brooklyn with a new and personal collection We Are Home. Lebanese-born label founder Céline Semaan Vernon, who fled Lebanon during the 1975-90 civil war, centres the new line around NASA satellite images printed on high-quality Italian silk scarves. All the limited-edition collectable pieces are created using environmentally responsible fibers like silk and moda.
The collection also highlights Syrian and Palestinian stories of exile. Slow Factory’s white gold key necklace, handmade in Lebanon, is a nod to the refugee tradition of keeping one’s house key in the hope of one day returning. Part of the proceeds from We Are Home will go to NGOs in the region.
With a mission to support environmental and humanitarian causes and a supply chain that is 100% clean and fair trade, we’ll certainly be buying.
The white gold key fashioned out of a mold of founder Céline Semaan Vernon’s family’s own house key.
A cosmic meditation on the Slow Factory ethos.
