The story of the phial “Mermaids’ tears”
Long ago, two greedy brothers who were exploring the northern seas of Europe found a huge cave in the depths of the Norwegian sea. There, they could not believe their eyes when they found half women half fish mermaids. They were so beautiful that they fell in love and when the brothers found out the creatures actually wanted to take them down the abyss, they decided to make profit out of their magical tears. They collected them by force and sold them to the European nobles who used them in comestics or in love potions.
La Loupiote – veilleuses féeriques is a shop that was created in 2020 by the artist “La Loupiote”, a word which has a double meaning in French.
It refers to a small light or a small child. How fitting this name is for someone who creates night-lights in the shapes of small fairy houses !
These magical small lamps which are inspired by the enchanting world of the Faery Folk illuminate the eyes of young and old people alike. The fairy houses glimmer in a sweet light and bring a touch a dream at night fall in the room they decorate, as well as they soothe the ones who are afraid of the dark.
All of the night-lights are unique and handmade with many details, much care and patience. Each of them tells an authentic story and invites you into their worlds – they seem to come all the way from a mossy undergrowth, a flowery meadow, a haunted castle ou even on old library. One holds into their hands a piece of an intimate dream handmade in the workshop just for you.
