and it features a print of two rainbowstouching 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 RAINBOW EMBRACE"
The colourful design of this collection pays homage to the Pride flag of the LQBTQI community by illustrating rainbows with the same colours of the pride flag. Symbolically this is what the colours of the flag mean for the LGBTQI community:
*RED - Life
ORANGE - Healing
YELLOW - Sunlight; be yourself instead of hiding in the shadows.
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 the rainbow- 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 the rainbows, 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 two rainbowsto signify touching or “kissing” on a white background - which symbolises peace, so the embracing rainbowsfeel 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 our Foil Me lovers, uniting us all across the globe. We want to not only bring joy to our Foil Me lovers’ hearts, but optimism and unity too – after all, rainbowsare formed while it is raining, yet the sun is still shining.
THE ILGA WORLD CHARITY
Foil Me will be donating $1.00 AUD from every foil packet sold from The Pride collection to the LGBTQIcharity, ILGAWorld @ilgaworld
This is a global organisation developed 42 years ago with 1600 members in over 15 countries. Created to assist those in the LGBTQIcommunity, ILGA World facilitates smaller associations to seek legal advice, fight for human rights and decriminalise laws that exist in countries and regions where basic human rights to live freely as a LGBTQImember are criminalised.
The organisation also provides information and research from across the globe for assisting legal services, helping groups access UN mechanisms, treaty bodies, marriage equality and many other services that are not easily accessed.
Let’s be LOVING, ACCEPTING, LOUD and PROUD!
