CHAPTER I - THE WEDDING

The beginning of a tale about the feminine universe that is not pink, but the color of struggle and melancholy. But it will never be a tale about loneliness, because it presents life as a celebration of unity and the strength of partnership. This was the woman's marriage to herself. Lex bouquet jewelry immortalized the purity of fruit and vegetables so that, as with the raw material of clothing, time never steals their beauty. Buketnaya lavka mimimi has built ephemeral shoes from fresh flowers, so that we never forget the fragility of what we have achieved. All the glass beads used in the pieces were made by hand by the women of the São Tomé and Príncipe Waste Recovery Cooperative, one by one, slowly, like the mother who plaits her daughter's hair.

A tale told by cloth. Of women that our eyes don’t see, but our hearts feel. Cloths that speak about the knowledge of time and that, together, are trousseau — or “enxoval”, as we call it in Portuguese. This is the celebration of women, and the cloths in the drawers.

It’s bringing the weight of longing with you. The need to leave and say goodbye. The reality of many women who come together through songs, looking, knowing what it means to be a woman. Even in the desert far away, even on the islands far away, and without knowing how to speak the same language, there are cries of love songs. Cries of the weddings that took our flowers away from our garden.

A chest with stories, some Portuguese, others coming from distant lands touched by the sun. An “enxoval” that became a collection, with naperons, tablecloths and different types of bedspreads covered with time. A collection that has the world inside it, with Portugal as its soul. It's hard not to believe in fairy tales when the pieces were materialized by real-life fairies: the Aga Khan Foundation and Madalena Toscany. Fairies who know what it's like to leave home behind them and go out with a suitcase full of cloths that resemble the colors and faces of those they didn't want to leave behind.

BÉHEN's mission is to protect and promote the Portuguese cultural heritage, embroidery, fabrics, tradition, and even the concept of “enxoval” — to keep the cloths that take time to embroider and that are passed on from generation to generation. BÉHEN believes, defends and advocates that the same should be done with clothes, shaping our mentalities and looking at the pieces as history and part of us, that tell the lives of all women who, together, can and will change the world.
