The Marie-Therese Bandana

This bandana is a collaboration between sisters Amelie and Juliette in homage to their grandmother, Marie-Therese.

Our grandmother Marie-Therese loved to draw, especially what was right in front of her, whether it was camels and Beduins on a trip through the desert, or her trekking shoes or a broomstick back at home. She found everything worth drawing and was never without her notepad and pencil, even at the end of her life, physically diminished and confined to her apartment.

We wanted to honor her memory by arranging a still-life from things we found in Amelie's studio: some tools, a plant, a few rocks picked up on a French beach, a small pitcher and a couple of strategically placed mirrors. We worked on a drawing together, then printed it on a beautiful indigo Belgian linen.

Marie-Therese liked to go on adventures, she liked Matisse and Picasso, she liked to tell her grand-children stories and she liked to climb mountains and watch sunsets, and we feel like she would have liked this bandana too. We hope it will be a good companion to many women (and men!) on many adventures, small or great, all worth it.
