Animals represent an important symbol of Christmas. The truth is that many animals are central to the story of Christmas, not only featured in Christmas tales, but signify historical, biblical and mythological associations. Penguins have a modern day association with Christmas, merely due to their link with snow and wintery conditions and that’s about it. You’ll see penguins featuring on Christmas decorations, but no one stops to think why! But who’s complaining, they are adorable!
Each MiNiMiS product is produced in 6 different colors. This idea arrised so that all bottles have equal opportunities in recycling. Depending on your taste, you can choose the design and type of jewelry and then your favorite color-bottle.
The transparent bottle is the Greek and well-known Ouzo. It is produced exclusively in Greece, where it is widely consumed, while it is also exported abroad. Especially well known is the ouzo produced in Lesvos. Aniseed-flavoured spirit drinks like ouzo are also found in other Mediterranean countries, such as Pastis in France and Sambuca in Italy.
Symbolism of Transparent color
This color is related to purity, energy and faith. Pure and subconsciously hopeful as it is, we may not see it but we know that it is there to constantly contribute to the perpetual transmission of our energy and messages. It will always symbolize the purity of the spirit. Transparency is associated with human faith which “gives birth” to a supernatural force that leads people to do their miracles, big or small. The energy, the power of faith and the miracles are intertwined with the transparent, the color that you do not exactly see but you certainly cannot ignore. You cannot ignore the existence of the air just because you do not see it, without it there is no life. Sometimes we need to think that the most important things are not fancy but have a humility that awe you.
A transparent piece of jewelry would be chosen by someone who is pure (something that results from the choice of color). A transparent piece of jewelry would be chosen by a sensitive person, perhaps introvert. Transparent MiNiMiS jewelry symbolize those fragile emotions that we are sometimes afraid of ‘breaking’. Choosing a transparent MiNiMiS handmade jewelry also shows a person who appreciates and searches for polite and subtle behaviors, like those needed by a glass jewelry.
How transparent jewelry are worn:
Transparent jewelry are easy to wear and go with everything. They have a discretion and humility that are similar to people who have a very strong personality and confidence but also a low profile. They declare their presence without ‘shouting’. They are ideal for your work, for an afternoon walk or for a coffee with a friend.
On the other side of the coin, however, lies the glamor of sheer jewelry that can perfect a very special outfit for a very special occasion. A very impressive outfit needs to be accompanied by discreet but elegant jewelry that keep a low profile.
MiNiMiS product packaging.
MiNiMiS as recycled, ecological and highly aesthetic products, could not any less than have the appropriate packaging.
Each MiNiMiS product is personalized and “speaks” directly to the recipient of the product through the accompanying card from recycled paper. The special tab describes a) the name of the product b) the bottle of origin c) the name of the recipient with a “thank you” on behalf of the bottle that was reused through the purchase of the product and d) instructions for use and protection of the product.
The box of MiNiMiS jewelry is ecological from recycled paper with the brand name printed on it. Inside the box for the protection of the glass jewelry, we place natural sawdust which we procure from local wood processing companies where is the natural waste of its process.
Larger items that need a lot of attention for their transport are wrapped with the special aeroplast technology and packed in bigger boxes according to the needs of each item.
