Kira Heuer launched Bib&Sola, a collection of hand-blown drinking carafes and tumblers, in 2011. Growing up by the ocean in Southern California, Kira had taken water for granted until she became aware of the plight of people living in areas where clean water is very rare. A percentage of Bib&Sola profit goes directly to The ONE Foundation and helps to support the development of pump water systems across Africa.
What is luxury?
“Whether it be a shell you find on a beach, a book that becomes a friend, a piece of jewelry that was passed down from your great grandmother, the gadget that records memorable moments or the dress you have been eyeing, Luxury is the pieces and moments in life that reconnect you to what matters. TIME has become the most sought after entity in today’s hustle bustle world, Luxury is having time and spending it on pieces or creating moments that bring pleasure into your life. Sometimes a mere sliced tomato from your garden to share with a friend can bring pleasure into one’s day. It is the companies and the artisans that create goods that inspire reconnection to a time when quality and innovation was at the highest prestige. A time when sustainability and doing good work was the norm.’
