WTF is this?

We often recieve e-mails from people browisng our gallery, and asking: “Hey, wtf are these?”

So, let’s explain:

These, obviously, are two cats. They represent our technology (rolled paper weaving) and they also represent us – GG Sisters – our love for handmade art and our even greater love for pets, especially cats. Which naturally leads to the production of cat houses and beds for cаts from recycled paper.

But “the two cat sisters” have a practical purpose, as well. They are, actually, “bottle dresses”, as we call them, or wine containers, in which you can put two bottles of wine
(750 ml each), disguising them as pet-loving-sisters. It’s an original birthday gift and a good souvenir, especially for “wine snobs”.

May be you have friends who collect wine. May be somewhere in the world another person has the same two bottles of wine as they do. But you can be sure that nobody in the world will ever have the same decoration for their two most precious bottles of wine, because we never make one and the same thing again.

If you want these beauties, now is the time to drop us a line.

Това пък какво е?

Вече имаме няколко писма от хора, разглеждали нашата галерия, които ни питат все същото: “Това пък какво е?”

Та, решихме да поясним:

Това, очевидно, са две котки. Плетени са ръчно от навита хартия, както и повечето ни неща. Вдъхновени са от самите нас. Символизират двете сестри (Джи Джи Систърс), както и непреходната ни любов към изкуството и още по-непреходната ни любов към котките, която неизбежно води до създаването на къщи за котки, легла за котки и други причудливи неща.

Но, двете-сестри-котки имат и практическо предназначение. Това, всъщност, са “рокли за бутилки” или по-точно контейнери, които побират по една стандартна бутилка вино (750 мл), дегизирайки ги като влюбени в котките сестрички. Мислим, че е оригинален подарък за рожден ден и чудесен сувенир, особено ако
приятелите ви са “винени сноби”.

Сигурно имате познати, които колекционират вино. Те сигурно имат някои редки вина. Но вероятно и друг човек по света някъде притежава същите редки вина. Това, което е сигурно, обаче, е, че никой, никога и никъде няма да има същите две украси за най-специалните си две бутилки вино, защото ние никога не правим едни
и същи неща.

Ако искате да се сдобиете с двете красавици, сега е моментът да ни драснете по един ред.

Spirit of Burgas 2013

It was our first time at The Spirit and, which is more important, we were there as participants, not only as guestst, which is another opportunity to say a great Thank You! to the guys and gals from Na Tumno Shops. There were thousands of guests, three different musical stages, tons of artists and performers, different styles, a lot of entertainment, handmade bazaars, musicians, all kinds of positive, cool people and, of course, three days of partying till sunrise on the beach of Burgas. One of the most charming moments was our in-person meeting with popular Bulgarian actress and singer Milenita. We’re both great fans of her music! She was just as charming, as wild, as beautiful, as talented and as down-to earth, as we had expected. Another interesting encounter was with the guy from Dobrich – chef by day, freestyler by night. He was very good at improvising with rhymes, no matter what kind of melody or beat came down from the stage. There were many other interesting people, of course. We made acquaintance with a very positive Italian guy in a wheelchair who spoke fluent Bulgarian. His daughter Plamena was amazing too! There were sexy “police women” trying to “arrest” innocent guys, in order to take pictures with them. We met Dub FX and we took pictures with him. We saved a cat from a tree. Our landlady insisted on having only one bath per day. A second bath was not included in the price, but we also discovered that one can easily spend the night in a hammok, under the night sky, especially in good company (with hammoks). People were impressed by our colourful exhibition of handmade gifts. We gathered a lot of positive feedback! We had the chance to demonstrate our rainsticks as well, but it didn’t rain, just as we had promised. 🙂 The other handamde artists were amazing too! Here are Vessy and Emo. Vessy tatooted our GGSisters’ logo on our hands, which can be seen in the picture above, and Emo is the guy from “Pimp” –  a very popular brand among Bulgarian hiphoppers. Here is Antonia from Varna with her special handmade bags. Here is Cherry Cat with her wonderful jewellery. Another “neighbor” of ours was the very sweet girl from Cyrly Handmade Art Studio. We didn’t mention a lot of people, of course. There were many wonderful, unique and interesting handmade artists at this year’s Spirit, but these are the only ones that we could take pictures of. The Green Peace guys draw the attention with their campaign for saving Arctica from the oil drilling industry. The sexy girls from the “Police” were constatntly “on the hunt for single guys” while Durex were giving away condoms for free to everybody. Just in case. It was noisy and overcrowded, but that’s why you go to Festivals like these. Parties were great! We spent both nights on the beach, going to bed long after sunrise. We gave TV interviews again. Reporters from different massmedia took pictures of our stuff. As a result from everything shared above, we are a little tired now, may be even exhausted, but this is a kind of exhaustion that we recommend to everybody! It is time for a peaceful relaxation somewhere on a deserted beach. Thanks a lot to Didi Andreeva for the nice (and professional) photos that she sent us after the festival was over.
