$220.00Price
  • Frida Draozy Frida


    Notes : Orchid, Salt Flower, Ylang Ylang

     

    The Frida scented candle is covered with natural raffia and embroidered with a pattern of blue roses. Around the central motif, graphic pink lines subtly echo the shape of Frida’s corset found in her paintings. A subtle interpretation and reminder of Mexican folklore for this very decorative scented candle with a warm scent and sunny mix of ylang and fleur de sel.

     

     

    For the seventh edition of our raffia scented candle collections, we have chosen to turn to the realm of the great Mexican artist Frida Kalho. As a committed and deeply nationalistic woman, she was a model for freedom and resilience for an entire people in a Mexico shaken by political instability. Her figurative paintings, very rich in self-portraits, constitute a diary of her sufferings. Frida Magdalena Carmen Khalo y Calderon turned to painting as a remedy for her pain. Her work is subtle, colorful, almost surrealist, although she refuses to be labeled as part of this school of artists. Frida is politically, personally and emotionally engaged. Her love for the artist Diego Rivera consumed her. We wanted to subliminally feature Frida’s corset, seen in her self-portraits, paired with a rose, symbol of her sensitive and delicate heart and used in crowns on the hairstyles of Mexican women. Where folklore and surrealism meet, four candles are thus created bearing the names of Frida and Diego. We are pleased to continue our social commitments in Madagascar, by supporting the women who follow our designs and colors with precision. Their excellence in the ancestral art of raffia and crochet shines with each passing seasons via increasingly complex patterns.
