Indposhiv has created a second drop of handkerchiefs for Children’s Day with concise and at the same time deep names. We were inspired to create this series by children’s eyes that never deceive – they immediately show joy and fear, delight or sadness. This is how the second drop for Children’s Day 2022 appeared, when children’s dreams and lives are interrupted daily by war.
The collection is based on motifs of children’s drawings selected during the month. The works were adapted and placed on a silk canvas with a bright frame, because, despite the horrors of the war, children’s lights could not be turned off. Each handkerchief is very bright, although it reflects tragic events – storage, military equipment and burning buildings. Yes, a handkerchief called “Planes” conveys a sense of fear of being in underground storage.
This time, UAH 500 from each sale will go to the LADA Foundation, which is currently actively helping mothers and children who have been forced to leave their homes and are in western Ukraine. In particular, the all-Ukrainian free parental support hotline 0800500313 and the chat https://golada.org/garyacha-liniya operate around the clock, where they advise on current topics from paperwork to maintaining breastfeeding in times of stress. In addition, the Foundation has launched a training course for mothers who have decided to go to work or start their own business and is developing adaptation guides for women and children.
