This fabulous collection is available in the following sizes:
and it features a print of two rainbows touching on a white background. For further info, keep reading to find out the symbolism of this foil and why it was created by our talented Creative Director and co-owner, Emily Ciardiello.
The colourful design of this collection pays homage to the Pride flag of the LQBTQIcommunity by illustrating rainbows with the same colours of the pride flag. Symbolically this is what the colours of the flag mean for theLQBTQIcommunity:
YELLOW- Sunlight;be yourself instead of hiding in the shadows.
GREEN - Nature
BLUE - Serenity
PURPLE - Spirit
We could have just designed a flag using the Pride colours, but we wanted to say more and honour the Pride colours so we adopted therainbow- an image that not only symbolises joy, radiance and optimism, but also difference in the fact that it is inclusive of many distinct colours.
After choosing therainbows, we then wanted to denote LOVE because no matter what race, colour, gender, national origin, age, religion, faith, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression a person identifies with, all we need is LOVE, right? So we placed tworainbows to signify touching or “kissing” on a white background - which symbolises peace, so the embracingrainbowsfeel at ease and at peace to express their love for one another.
Further more, you'll find that in each size, each image is different - concreting the message that it's more than okay to be unique - it is celebrated!
So, ideally, we wanted the foil as a whole to celebrate love, equality, difference and freedom to express oneself. Now, more than ever, during this current pandemic the whole world has lived through, we believe this foil will strongly resonate with many of ourFoil Melovers, uniting us all across the globe. We want to not only bring joy to ourFoil Melovers’ hearts, but optimism and unity too – after all,rainbows are formed while it is raining, yet the sun is still shining.
