A British woman passionate about safeguarding the rights of small-scale gem and gold miners around the world came to Sri Lanka to source precious stones for her first piece of bespoke jewellery—a ring. She says: “This is jewellery that has immeasurable value to not only me, but to everyone who received a fair price in the making of it. Its ethical provenance makes it more precious than the insurance could cover.”
The amazing story of two Sri Lankan sisters who have succeed—possibly beyond their wildest expectations—in the cut-throat world of European fashion is an inspiration. Josie and Jessica Fernando were brought up in Switzerland, but summers spent in Sri Lanka were the starting point of Kinsfolk.
Don’t ask what this is all about, because it’s a bit of a mystery. Check out the blog, and you’ll see why. All we can glean is that young Jessica travels the world modelling nifty outfits for an outfit called tuula. This this time she’s in Sri Lanka, and if you like great pics of pretty young blondes modelling nifty outfits in exotic locations, this is for you.
Sri Lanka’s cultural expression through jewellery, handicrafts and fashion is highlighted in a look at the L’Indochine fashion shop featured on The Standard website.
