From Italy With Love

 
For this Club we chose something with a strong bond with the earth and the cycle of nature.
 

Handcraft Bookmark & Pencil  

SEGNALIBRO_10_800x600

The bookmark and the matching pencil you’ll find in this Kora Club are handmade by Renza Baiardi. Renza lives in the hills of Monferrato in Piemonte amongst vineyards and hazelnut groves.

Her pieces are created with recycled paper using only natural pigments!  She also creates beautiful illustrations inspired by nature and the change of the season.

We asked Renza to create an illustration with the Persimmon tree whose deep color when mature reminded us of the Brick Dust in this Club. The persimmon tree was one of the first plant cultivated by man in the Far East and you can read more about our inspiration in the mood section.

Persimmon amongst other symbolism also conveys good luck, business success and career advancement to receivers so we hope this can be a good omen for you all!

“Le Caramelline” (little candies)

Le Querce_05_800x600

“The health of our bees comes first. We take care of them by breeding them according to practices that reflect our love and respect for nature: nomadic beekeeping, to achieve the rarest blooms and to ensure the biodiversity of the territory and organic production methods”.

Le Querce is a family-run business started in 1998 when Giuseppe Perino decided to realize and develop his passion for beekeeping.
The constant and laborious activity of this family and the rich vegetation of the Anfiteatro Morenico in the Canavese area, bring about a high quality organic honey line.

The ‘caramelline’ (little candies) you will find in this Club are made of organic linden honey with a splash of ginger and lemon.

This  linden honey is harvested in June and July in Piedmont and it has a  surprising minty note, as if this honey could associate a woody nuance to a refreshing flavour.
