Reborn is red, orange, the exuberant colors of autumn, of the flames that bring warmth in winter. Reborn is the red of monasteries that brings peace of mind. Reborn is also renewal, hope and change. At Norlha, we have based our new collection on these principles, symbolized by the soft reds and oranges and the new ways of the Norlha women on their motorcycles.
When we established Norlha eleven years ago, most men and women had to travel from their outer winter hamlets up to eight kilometers away. The men rode their bikes and the women walked, over an hour, at dawn and dusk, summer and winter. Things have changed. Many couples have built houses nearby, and women have begun riding motorbikes, making long journeys short, and no longer having to rely on brothers, husbands or fathers to take them from one place to another.
