Rose Coloured World

A lot of my time is spent roaming the Asia-Pacific region visiting quite a few countries and spending time with the talented individuals that construct many of our Casegoods and Accessory products. Aside from visiting all of my friends and overseas colleagues, I am the most excited when I have the chance to visit our ceramics supplier in Indonesia.

 

Ceramics are tricky to produce. Any small cracks or air bubbles in any one piece can wreak havoc (and cause a mini explosion!) when a large batch is fired. To help check for these imperfections the team we work with produces all of their pieces in shades of pink to highlight these potential imperfections. When speaking with the production manager he mentioned that as soon as they started leaving these pieces pink morale went up and productivity soon followed.

 

It’s hard to say for sure if this delicate hue was the sole cause of these heightened spirits but visiting this place it’s hard to see how it wouldn’t brighten anyone’s day. If Prada‘s f/w 15 collection is any indication –  all us girls might soon be traipsing around in two piece pink suits. I can’t wait.

 

Until then – here are some photo’s from my visit with our supplier earlier this month.
