Conscious Capsule

Have you ever thought about your consumption habits while shopping for clothing? 
" To prepare your own “Conscious Capsule” as we want to name it in Store of Hope, is actually more of a psychological thing to establish than practical one if you’d ask me. Putting it into practice, choosing the ecological, ethical and up-cycling brands, is already the next step. At the beginning we must set ourselves free from fast fashion and emotional shopping."

It’s that time of a year when Finnish nature shows it’s most beautiful sides. We Finns absolutely love to be outside in the park when grass is green, leaves making the sound of harmony with the wind, and the lakes are bright. Something calls us to come closer and be present.

From nightmares to dreams

From nightmares to dreams

September 17, 2017

We are now much further away from the center of Kathmandu. Colorful houses adorn the beautiful green hills, and in this village walking is much more common than driving. It is easier to breathe here in the mountains, and as we climb higher each of the temples we see is more beautiful than the last.

The people streaming out of the plane stir the still, stagnant air at the airport.
