I see you. You’re here and that is important to me. You’re probably interested of these beautiful pieces of sleepwear that we created or you were brought here by the thoughts that we spread through social media. All of that is put out there consciously and intentional. I want us to feel closer so let me start by sharing something about me. Sharing my intimate self with others is not something that I use to do so I guess this is my first take on self-disclosure.
I’ve reflected a lot on the powerful intimacy with myself in those moments when I close my eyes to go to sleep and right before I open them to start my day. Those are moments of the highest binding with the true nature of the feelings that are waiting patiently during the day to be noticed, to be taken care of. I meet with these feelings every evening and every morning in that timeless rich space. They link me to my body and through my body I can understand them better.
I’ve set in place rituals for these encounters with myself, rituals that accompany me through my process. Sometimes I light a scented candle or I take a bubbly bath, other times I stare at the ceiling and sit in that feeling, whatever it is. Choosing sleeping clothes is not accidental, either. At least not for me. They often portray the way I feel inside and other times I use them as a recovery ritual. Some hug me as soon as I put them on, others feel like I am not wearing anything at all. Sometimes sleeping clothes take me back to when I was a little girl in comfy pajamas. Lately, most of the times I really want to embody the image of the woman I saw countless times moving around the house in a long silky nightdress – my mother.
Starting and building SOLLUNA brand is my way of honoring this intimacy and everything that comes with it; it is about seeing all these bits and pieces in myself, one at a time. So far it’s been a rewarding process of meeting and working with people who feel the same and who felt inspired to contribute to this idea. Together we nurtured to life this space of expressing feelings through sleeping clothes. These first objects are just the beginning, there is a lot more to explore.
Are you in for hide and seek? Notice with us the play of light and shadow, of tying and untying knots, of covering and uncovering parts of ourselves.
I see you,
