The story of the mask REVES
Yvana, founder of YVA Océan Indien, is always looking for partnerships that give meaning to the products she imagines.
This time, it is during her last trip to Pondicherry, in South India, that she meets the members of the KYNAROU association: Radja, Lourdes (the tailor that made all the masks 🙂 ), Venkatensan and Vaidhegi as well as Sophie !
They study together the manufacture of sleeping masks (and washable cotton remover pads) with the aim of a sustainable beauty. After the choice of tissues, and some tests, the prototypes are validated.
For this first collaboration, Yvana imagines a limited edition to highlight its artisanal and authentic character.
For Kynarou, it is also a first, since their sewing project is at its beginning and Lourdes is currently the only tailor of the workshop. Their project is to develop this workshop by hiring several women and training them in the textile trades so that they can be independent and have a long-term professional activity.
To find out more about the KYNAROU association, whose main mission is to realize development aid projects, in particular through the establishment of sustainable access to drinking water, hygiene and health in disadvantaged villages, it’s here.
Hoping that this mask will bring you as much well-being as we enjoyed doing it all together.
So that it may take you into your most beautiful dreams and fulfill our dreams of a fairer and healthier world.
