Hi again all...
Your all probably wondering why I made a paper version of the Mérit by Louis Vuitton.
Well this would be why...
As some of you readers may already know from reading my previous post I very sadly lost my mum just over two months ago. There's a comforting belief Chinese people share, we like to believe that by burning paper replicas of things such as money, houses, cars, etc we are providing material good for our lost ones. All these paper replicas are available to purchase however I wanted to hand make something for my beloved ma. By writing the name of the person you wish to give a gift to on the items before burning we like to think the other side would be on the receiving end.
When my Mum was still here with us she loved shopping, and although she loved the high street one of her favourite designers was of course Louis Vuitton. So when coming to decide what to make her, the idea came pretty quickly... I will burn this for mum nearer her birthday in December :)
I picked the bag from the current collection, I hope you like it Ma! And it wouldn't be like you to have zero complaint but I really hope you like!
