The story of The Baby Selkie
Selkies are wonderful legendary creatures from Scotland and Ireland. This creature of the Sea People can shapeshift. It looks like a seal but is actually a woman. When they wish to reach the shore, they can take off their grey skin and dance in the moonlight. If someone steals her skin, she becomes their slave. Sometimes they grow fond of the person who “captured” them and have children. But if her magical skin has not been burnt or been hidden away, then if she takes it back, she will reach the waves never to come back.
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.
