Wearing Art

Tanabata, seventh night of the seventh month, celebrates the meeting of two Orihime and Hikoboshi gods, represented by Two Stars Enamored Vega and Altair.

In ancient times on the banks of the Celeste River (the Milky Way), lived the emperor of the sky, Tentei, whose daughter Orihime (Vega) spent the days weaving. When she reached adulthood her father chose her husband: Hikoboshi (Altair), also a laborer, whose activity consisted in grazing oxen across the banks of the Celeste River. For the two young people it was love at first sight but taken by love and passion, they also forgot their duties. As a result, Orihime no longer wove his canvas, leaving the gods without clothes, and Hikoboshi's oxen roamed without control throughout the sky. This triggered Tentei's anger and the two lovers were separated on either side of the Celestial River and forced to return to their duties. The princess was so desperate that Tentei, moved, allowed the two to meet, only once a year, on the seventh day of the seventh month. Since then, a flock of magpies comes every year, and they create a bridge with their wings, so that Orihime can cross the Celestial River and embrace its beloved Hikoboshi.

The Tanabata collection by Lebole Gioielli consists of several pairs of earrings, all rigorously asymmetric, made up of pairs of stars of various sizes that meet like the characters of the legend. The materials used remain tied to the company's tradition; ancient Japanese kimono fabrics, gold galvanized silver and natural stones combined with fabric colors.

A pair of colored paper called "Tanazaku" will be attached to each pair of earrings, symbolizing a silk thread intertwined by Orihime, with a phrase "to be discovered" written on the day of Tanabata. In fact, to celebrate the love of the two stars in Japan on this day they hang on the bamboo trees of the "tanazaku" in which poems, prayers and desires aimed at the stars are written.
