Designers: officialromaniantranslatiuni: petruparcatoru: andiiwrites: dangerdwight: vrabia: officialromaniantranslatiuni: http://www.bihorcouture.com hey friends, if you care about cultural appropriation and the damage it causes, please check out this awesome project! in 2017 dior copied the design of a traditional romanian coat from the county of bihor and sold it for 30,000 euro, giving no credit to the local artisans. in response, romanian fashion magazine beau monde helped the community create their own brand, bihor couture, which sells the original coat, handmade to order, for 500 euro a piece. they also sell other traditional clothing and jewelry for much more accessible prices (5-45 euro). they’ve been hugely successful so far, and currently have enough pre-orders to cover 4.5 years of work, with 100% of the profits returning to the community.  it’s surprisingly common for big name fashion designers like dior, gaultier, tom ford and altuzarra to copy traditional romanian clothing and sell it for ridiculous prices, with minimal original input, while giving nothing back to the community where these designs originated. it’s completely unfair that a big name designer can just steal so much hard work and misuse it to make huge profits.  please support bihor couture, if not by ordering one of their products, then by spreading the news around. it’s really awesome to see a small community fight back against cultural appropriation so successfully. i hope they carry on for a long time! But like, when this is done to cultures of color, non-white, nothing happens. Like, I’m here for the people in Bihor, but it makes me wish more work was done just like this for African countries, Asian countries, Hispanic Countries, etc. The people of Bihor did this for themselves. With the help of a Romanian magazine, they support themselves. The Romanian community posted this, reblogged this, and you saw and reblogged.  But this wasn’t done ‘for us’, work was not done ‘for the people of Bihor’. White people didn’t see this other ‘white country’, and sad ‘yes, let us help our fellow white citizens on this Earth while continuing to ignore everyone else’. The people of Romania and Bihor saw this and said ‘we must act’ and acted. Take this US-born concept of ‘cultures of color’ away from multicultural continents like Europe, where this thing does not apply. This post gained traction on facebook in Romania, from romanian to romanian, and then on tumblr (as you can see, the tumblr that posted it is a Romanian tumblr). The tumblr explaining you this, vrabia, is a romanian tumblr. Nothing is ‘work done for’. We see it, we reblog it, we did it, we’re bringing it to light.  We are doing it. It is work by, not work for. No one gave Romanian and Bihor anything. They/we did it. You want this ‘done for’ other countries? Angelina Jolie is doing it through UN. Poeple are doing it. But work ’done for Bihor’ (done by) does not invalidate work ‘done for’ other countries and cultures. Let us have this at least, after all the world took Vlad the Impaler and vilified a national hero by making him a bloodsucker.  lol that’s my old blog bless :)))))))) @petruparcatoru I WAS ACTUALLY ABOUT TO MAKE A POST ASKING WHERE ANDIIWRITES WENT

Designers: im weirdly knowlagable in the history of soda i dont even drink soda why do i know so much about it coke and pepsi taste different because coke was invent before refrigeration so it was designed to be drunk warm, while pepsi was designed after refrigeration was invented so it was designed to be drunk cold. as a result the tastes are different but if you drink pepsi cold and coke warm theyll taste the same. Why the fuck do you know this i honestly have no idea coke's recipe was originally green but the designers made it brown so it looked more like tea Had they never seen green tea? i dont even know if green tea was invented in 1886 but they wanted to make the public more open to eating the fizzy drink Green tea was invented in the 13th century and made up 22% of the tea thrown off the ship in the Boston Tea Party alan i know about soda not green tea i will trade u information abt bees and carrier pigeons for information abt the history of soda no one knows where the origin of the name '7up' started but it did have a mood stabilizer in the original recipe found in present day anti-depressants i want facts about bees and carrier pigeons now Carrier pigeons come from a species of Wild Rock pigeon, and their flights could be as long as 1800 km and were used as early as 3000 years ago. You know in old cartoons where a character throws a beehive at someone, and you think 'lol, but that wouldn't work in real life'. Turns out it would, and did. People used to lob beehives at the approximate location of the enemy forces to expose them. this is amazing thank you I know about soda, not green tea

 i dont even know if green tea was invented in 1886 but they wanted to
 make the public more open to eating the fizzy drink
 Green tea was invented in the 13th century and made up 22% of the tea
 thrown off the ship in the Boston Tea Party
 alan i know about soda not green tea
 i will trade u information abt bees and carrier pigeons for information abt the
 history of soda
 no one knows where the origin of the name '7up' started but it did have a
 mood stabilizer in the original recipe found in present day anti-depressants
 i want facts about bees and carrier pigeons now
 Carrier pigeons come from a species of Wild Rock pigeon, and their flights could
 be as long as 1800 km and were used as early as 3000 years ago.
