An installation to benefit the Designing Hope association.
The lucky flowers were created in collaboration with the Bon Marché Rive Gauche and the South African designer Thebe Magugu. They were made by more than 120 women supported by the association in southern Africa.
Their sale for the benefit of the Designing Hope association helped finance the “Garden of Skills” project in Eswatini, which was inaugurated during the summer of 2022. This project will eventually bring together, on a one hectare agroforestry plot, a centre for activities and training in the fields of agroecology, agroforestry, handicrafts and micro-project management, a community kitchen, educational activities for the youngest, a collective crèche, as well as accommodation units to develop voluntourism.
