Crowded venue at the opening of Sweet Salone project and Sense of Place photo exhibition

We are extremely grateful for the warm attention we received at the double opening of Aurora’s Sweet Salone project and Sense of Place photo exhibition, marking the 10th anniversary of the Foundation. As a part of Aurora’s Sweet Salone project, design studios KronKron and AsWeGrow collaborated with craftspeople in Sierra Leone, in creating collections of clothes, toys and accessories.

At the opening, the KronKron showroom was packed to the door, and the products very well received by all guests and visitors. The cooperation between us, the Icelandic designers and Sierra Leonean artisans, has exceeded our greatest expectations. We look forward to new products being developed, resulting in more jobs being created in Sierra Leone, and closer ties knit between the two countries Aurora operates in; Sierra Leone and Iceland.

The Sweet Salone products will continue to be for sale in the KronKron boutique at Laugavegur 63B. For further information about the project and items, please contact Aurora Foundation at aurorafoundation@aurorafoundation.is
