Souvenirs are little tangible memories we get from our travels, it often comes with a very special story told over generations starting from the crafty ancestors who created them.
The more I learned about these souvenirs and how they came into being the more I believe its only art that has always made the world a better place. Happiness has always come from creating and expressing ourselves. It's only art that can save us.
With these 12 souvenirs and their holders I wish to bring a little bit of the art residing the world to your tables, even when the days are long, I hope you remember to make room for beauty. Observing, appreciating and holding copious amounts of it in your heart.
Manifesting a beautiful year for you <3
