I Like Fest

This year’s I Like Fest was on the same date with national holiday (the 6th of September) which, combined with the nice weather, obviously drove many people out of town for the holidays (three non-working days in a row). This is why there were not so many people at the fest, but we think they spent some quality time together: 

As a matter of fact, we also did. 🙂 The atmosphere was entirely the “I like” type. “I Like” is a game of words and a nice way to translate the local dialect word for “Aylyak”. Aylyak basically means: being able to do nothing (on puropose) and enjoying it in the same time.   Many thanx to our dear friend Cvetan Uzunov (you can see only his back in the picture) and many thanx to Mihaela Mihaylova, as well, for inviting us to this fest!

Again and again, we were asked the same question by visitors: “Is this really made from paper?” People were studying our exhibition of handmade gifts, touching and feeling them with their hands, in order to convince themselves that these miracles had really been made from paper and waste. 🙂

Two very nice grils (a mother and her daughter) visited our workshop in order to learn how to make “Tony’s Spoons”. Tony is a boy who had taught us on a previous festival the technology of making spoons from recycled paper. It’s a teamwork for two. We will definitely discuss on this topic later, in another publication.

There were other festivals and celebrations throughout the city on the same day, but we think that our place was the best place to stay. One can easily kick back and relax in the city park. It is easier to reach the Aylyak / I Like mood in it’s atmosphere. We were surrounded by grandpas playing chess, by young people relaxing on their hammocks (people of all ages and beers of different types complimenting each other), by friends having fun in the park together, by artists and musicians and many more…

We definitely liked it! 🙂

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.
