Poppies’ voice tells the joy in every living thing. It is about the divine in all creatures, the male and female and the joy in all life and regeneration.” Laurie Blum 

Mehera Blum seeks to create the same living vibrance in the Poppies! Collection as her late mother’s exuberant painting by the same name, Poppies!. Blum seeks to give the bearer a spark of the joy of life expressed by the Poppy flower. The limited edition collection has been hand-embroidered in order to replicate sections of the painting. Over two hundred and fifty hours of meticulous and handcrafted precision are dedicated to the creation of each bag, truly making it a work of art. 

Each season Mehera is recreating a painting, in bag form, from her mother’s vast library of work. And for this season, she has named it the season of the Poppy! Mehera and her Mother have always shared a unique facility with their usage of color. As Mehera describes: “Magenta abounds fragrantly in Poppies! and the other colors boldly dance in harmony with the magenta popping from every flower. I can feel the intoxicating joy that my mother described in the atmosphere she was recreating: ‘I am painting the atmosphere that the Poppies imbibe here!’”

It was of utmost importance to Mehera to respect the lines of her mother’s brushstrokes, colors, and shading. She sat with each artisan in order to guide the thread, color, and direction of the needle so that this enormous feat could be met successfully.

The collection is handcrafted using brush-off and smooth box-calfskin leather that act as a shiny canvas to showcase the embroidery. Crowning the collection are regal, gold-finished custom Blumera chains and medallions handmade in Italy

In addition to the technical aspects of this collection, each piece has a unique story. The colors and design of the collection mimic Spring and Summer but also bring a sense of joy and vibrancy to Autumn and Fall. As Mehera describes, “There is something so beautiful about wearing color when all is dark and gloomy around us. I feel it really does enliven the spirit and the atmosphere.” 

At a moment in time where there is such divisiveness and doom and gloom in the world, we must dig deep to find our joy, optimism, love, kindness, and beauty. Poppies! invites us to to look within to find our true beauty and divinity. This collection is dedicated to the One within us all: the One that embodies Truth, Love, Beauty, and Purity. And so, let us rejoice in Poppies'! voice of Joy. 

“This collection is for all mothers and daughters and for all great souls who dance in love in the garden of paradise.” – Mehera Blum

When I purchased a Blumera creation, I did not expect that I would feel so moved by it as I do with my favorite paintings. These are beautiful works of art, with each piece telling a story that I became part of. The beauty and attention to detail is of course present, but there is also something transformative and inspiring - sacred, even - about their creation. I greatly value things that matter. Blumera crafts timeless, classic, and exquisitely beautiful pieces that do just that.
