MOIRAI

Moirai
so I had the chance to meet Jorina at the Theater Basel and she told me about her own label and about MOIRAI. I asked her what that was and asked her if I could show it on the blog. I sent her some questions and are very happy to share this awesome design spot with you.
1. Who is behind it and what do you do?
MOIRAI is created by three women from Basel, each with their own label and area of expertise.
Jorina Weiss – label “Jorina Weiss“, women’s and men’s fashion
Sabrina Kym – label “Kyry’s“, children’s clothes and accessoires
Anne-Sophie Chiarello – label “Chiara Moira“, women’s fashion
Together we run MOIRAI in Basel: our creative space where design, creation, café and shop are one. We also teach sewing classes here and host our own events. The clothes that these three in-house labels sell are all made by our own hands on site. A truly local shopping experience.

2. Where can we find you?
MOIRAI‘s shop is in Basel at Missionsstrasse 66. You can also find us online at www.moirai.ch, and on facebook www.facebook.com/www.moirai.ch
3. How is it for you to be part of the swiss design scene?
We pride ourselves in our local approach to design. If you like one of our designs, we can custom make it for you, change it to your liking or create something entirely new. We think this way of designing will change the way our customers look at clothes, experience and wear them. It is also possible to learn to make the clothes you see or imagine in our classes.

I really hope you liked this post as much as I had fun to write it. Thank you so much for answering my questions. Its my pleasure to show you local design on such a high level. I encourage you to visit MOIRAI and check their social media for events. Maybe a sewing class might be something for you. 🙂 I wish you all a lovely sunny day and lets hope we can all wear our summer clothes for a bit longer. X

VELAFRICA – mobility with perspectives

Velafrica connects work and integration in Switzerland with development in Africa.
Since 1993 the Non-Profit Organisation has collected old, worn-out bicycles, refurbishing them with social institutions and exporting them to its partners in Africa.

SWITZERLAND
  • Collection
    there are 479 permanent and free collection points for bicycles across the country. Every year, an additional 50 collection events are organized.
  • Recycling
    thanks to functional recycling of our bikes, 350 tonnes of old metal is saved from the shredder each year.
  • Integration
    360 unemployed and physically challenged people refurbish the donated bicycles and prepare them for transport to Africa.
AFRICA
  • Export
    in 2015, Velafrica sent 38 shipping containers with 17‘455 donated and reworked bicycles from Switzerland to Africa.
  • Mobility
    since 1993 over 140‘000 donated Swiss bikes have found a new owner. On average, four people benefit from the use of a bicycle.
  • Vocational Training & Jobs
    by 2015, 106 youth completed an apprenticeship in bicycle mechanics. Bicycle workshops create jobs in repair and sales.

 velafrica workshops
Velafrica has the support of 30 partners across Switzerland. Between Liestal and Brig, Bulle and Chur, a dense network of social enterprises work towards integrational work. in 2015, Velafrica started an export workshop in Liebefeld, Berne as an integrational project for refugees and migrants.
They work with 13 regional partners in Gambia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Tanzania, Madagascar, and Eritrea. This partnership is done with non-profit and selected small businesses. We foster a relationship based on economic collaboration to promote social entrepreneurship.

 “bycicle reduces poverty”
The bicycle is an affordable alternative that spares people from walking. In cellars across Switzerland there are many bicycles that remain unused. In the developing regions of Africa however, cheap forms of transport are scarce. The recycled bicycles from Switzerland improve local access to education, health care and economic opportunities. After research done by Velafrica in Burkina Faso and Tanzania, mobility was found to be the most important factor in overcoming poverty.

I am so happy that I walked into Angela during the ECO festival in Basel and it makes me even happier to share this awesome project with all of you.
