puma does plastic – and apologies for lagging behind, I’ve been v v v busy

Saturday, January 29th, 2011

So, this is the process I went through a few days ago to transform or ‘tune’ some PUMA suedes…

here’s a link to my Finnish distributor Outi’s blog – for pics of the PUMA event:

I love PUMA. And Popot.

PUMA days

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

I have a great relationship with PUMA in SA, and the Finnish PUMA peeps very kindly agreed to also be my friends. They sponsored a whole lotta winter wanmies for my working pleasure here – because I’m working outside so much, I needed some gear. So, there is a small party for press and stuff on Thursday night at a very cool sneaker shop in Helsinki called Popot Shop, where some ‘tuned’ puma shoes will be shown and we’ll have some fun.
Um, I am tuning them today.

When I arrived in Zimbabwe (Bulawayo – my birth town) for a series of weaving workshops there with 2 different groups of women weavers, I was taken to the rank market, where a certain pride was shown by the people selling tomatoes and sorghum and so on. It immediately reminded me of the way produce and objects are often proudly and beautifully displayed in Japan – like the fruit in the second photo above…
