All in the spirit of Mother Nature. Dedicated to one of the most important farm animals of all – Bees – because bees pollinate approximately 80% of our crops. The Honey frame is for those who appreciate understatement, but can also do without it. Restrained and yet present – like love at second sight. Complementing this, we dive into a colorful world.
