We met Roland at I Love Sunday at Caroline's Yoga a few weeks back and he explained his worthy project to us and it seemed important that we share.
Roland makes really beautiful clothes in organic textiles in a really caring way.
Every year he and his team travel to Peru and Mexico to host creative workshops for poor and homeless children. The aim: to nourish their creativity, teach them new artistic techniques and build their confidence. The art that the children create then becomes the inspiration for the graphics on all Choclo products. The money raised through the sale of these products is used to build classrooms and pay for their school fees, showing them the value of their own creativity. Choclo clothing project is there to value them.
Every clothing item has a story and we love that.In 3 weeks he and his team will be leaving for Mexico on their next Mission. In order to finance this trip they have started a KissKissBankBank Crowdfunding Campaign and need as much help as possible to help raise the remaining funds they need to get to Mexico and free the creativity of the 50 abandoned or homeless children we will be working with over there.This is a link to an article posted yesterday by Mr Mondialisation (500 000 fans on facebook) about the project.This is their website.
They are at 50% of their objective with 2 weeks left so Roland and his colleagues really need a boost right now. It is achievable but they really need all the help they can get!
Models of Roland's creations are also available at Caroline's Yoga in Hossegor.
We love the T Shirt and accessories this new store has on offer.
This great local brand returns to it's roots here in Hossegor. StepArt has the concept of putting on a TShirt print that are trendy and alternative, we like the way they look totally unique.

Having met Antoine through a visit to Chipiron Surboards, we really wanted to talk about his work and stunning boards!
This shaper opened his surf boards factory 4 years back in Capbreton and is as fascinated by his work as he is detailed and skilled. Lots.
Antoine makes his boards from scratch but also glasses for other shapers too.
His Origine surf boards was born with a love for surf and also natural materials and beautiful glassing work right here in Hossegor. Boards coated in a brilliant shine, looks like water is always pouring off them. Tinted resin and always beautifully coloured (no white boards here).
He even makes skateboards. Shortboards longboards we love his boards.
You can also come to make your own boards at Antoine's factory where he can assist with every step of the process, or not, it's up to you. You can shape, sand and glass and he can walk you through it.
The idea of making your own boards appeal to you or need a repair?
Want a made to measure Origine board made for you?
Antoine, with his discretion and ease will make you feel welcome in his Dust Barn and guide you through the service that you need.
