Time to celebrate Diwali at Mango & The Moon.
At Mango & The Moon, we have nurtured a close working relationship with our wonderful Indian family in Bangalore, a relationship that began many moons 🌝🌛🌝🌜 ago, in the fashion business.
Fast forward 20 years and we are still working with those same lovely people, along with some new faces, designing and creating our beautiful happy cushions and soft furnishings.
This week we are excited to be celebrating Diwali.
Diwali, the 'festival of light' celebrates the end of the harvest and new beginnings and symbolises the spiritual 'victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance' with the festivities reaching their peak on Thursday, the darkest day of the Hindu lunar month, Kartk. More apt this year than ever after what has been the most difficult and challenging time during the pandemic, we wish everyone Health and Happiness 😁😁😁
To honour Diwali, our sample room and cloth houses will close so that our colleagues and families can enjoy this magical festival.
In celebration, temples, homes and outside spaces will be decorated with beautiful shimmering lights and colourful flowers with family feasts and fireworks enjoyed by all, in what is a countrywide joyful celebration of kindness, happiness, and compassion.
Back in Rutland, we are busy preparing ourselves for our very first Mango & The Moon Christmas and it’s looking like it’s going to be a busy one🎄🎅🎄🤶.
Whether it’s to add a splash of colour and cheer to your own home or it’s a gift you're looking for, we have plenty of unique designs in bedazzling colours, and sumptuous fabric to choose from in our online shop and our showroom in Oakham, Rutland. We will also be at the Christmas Fair at The Eco Village in Market Harborough, November 20th & 21st and The Night Before Christmas at Kelmarsh Halls and Gardens November 27th & 28th, come and say hi and stroke some velvet 🤩
Before we get too caught up with Christmas craziness though, we would like to wish all our wonderful colleagues and friends in Bangalore and Delhi and throughout India, a wonderful Diwali.
