Blood Moon

by Celine Semaan Vernon

I woke up today expecting that my stress might have vanished, as I have read that the Lunar Eclipse will be bringing us a lot of change. 

The Universe sent me this note today:


When fear speaks, celine, it's always wrong.

Game on,
The Universe

 

We are very excited to announce that we have refilled our stock for your favorite prints! Hurry before we run out again! It takes a lot of time to make them. Maybe that is why we are called Slow Factory, as we are slowly orbiting around the Earth, we also support the slow fashion movement, the slow everything movement as a matter of fact, and we are working towards a sustainable, environmentally friendly process that will allow us to grow very very slowly.

Back in stock!
