Safara Chicago

IMG_6674
I did Laura’s nails with different Turkish prints inspired by her local business Safara. While doing Laura’s nails I got to learn a ton about Turkish textiles and what she is doing to support small businesses abroad is nothing short of amazing. She travels the world handpicking different textiles which is directly supporting small buisness and their craft. The art of looming has been known to be slowly dying, but with her support and others who purchase these items its keeping this artform alive and thriving. If you visit her site you can see all these beautiful textiles while learning a bit of background behind your purchase which I think is pretty bad ass! Happy to support another culture and art form!
