A bareness (a wordplay on awareness, off course) was founded in Nepal by Norwegian designers Karoline Hestnes og Anne-Marte Fossum. They have already, at Oslo fashion week, showed their wonderful jewellery designs, and soon they will launch their clothing line as well. They will start to sell their products on their website http://www.abareness.com this month. They are using local products and will also give an amount of the purchase in support of a water filtration system flr the locals. Looking forward to hearing more from these women. Stay tuned!

I also wanted to mention Susanne Histrup’s blog, where she is showing, and giving away, a bracelet designed by Caroline Viken for Redd Barna/Save the Children, and the money will, of course, go to Save the Children!
