Your daily Christmas treat

… tells the story behind our Amazonas design – created and designed by Cecilie Elisabeth Rudolph in cooperation with Andrea Elisabeth Rudolph. 

"In many ways, Amazonas resembles a real Christmas adventure. Migical, mystyrious, dark, warm and filled with the finest wonders of this worlds – and all at once it’s so incredible and amazing”, explains Cecilie Elisabeth Rudolph, the creative mind and hands behind the Amazonas design – and sister to our founder, Andrea Elisabeth Rudolph. 

In the past, Cecilie has designed and created prints for Rudolph Care. Among other things, she’s the woman behind the print on our entire sun series and the gift box, Bon Voyage. This year she has created Amazonas that decorates a selection of our products – click here to see the entire series. The colorful design is in many ways a tribute to the Brazilian rainforest and the local that harvest the acai berries that we use in our products. We’re so grateful that we get to contribute to the preservation of a wild piece of rainforest through our use of the power berry.

Cecilie continues: 

With this year’s artwork I’ve let myself inspire by Andrea and Rudolph Care’s latest adventure to the Brazilian rainforest, where she experienced the acai harvest firsthand among the locals. Amazonas is my interpretation and fascination of Andrea’s stories from her magical reunion with the rainforest and its people. And the acai berry, naturally. The acai berry grows wild in the shade of the rainforest and is the key ingredient in the Rudolph Care products. It’s this exotic wilderness, the swampy terrain and the profound jungle mood that I’ve wanted to catch in my artwork. The palm trees are hand painted along with the many layers of the vast flora of the jungle. There are shades of green, blue and deep purple with a hint of light that only just manages to penetrate the palm leaves. I’ve tried my best to illustrate the outstanding place that Andrea has described for me.”  

With the launch of the Amazonas design we saw much interest and praise to the artist behind it. The suggestions to more products with a similar design were plenty, but one kept repeating itself – a poster with the exact same artwork. We decided to do something about all that love, so we just launched a limited stock of the Amazonas design on print. The poster has A3 proportions (29,7 x 42 cm) and is made from 100% recycled material – and naturally carries the Nordic Swan Ecolabel. Every piece has a unique handwritten number.

 

”I’m so proud that my sister’s artwork is now going to glow in so many homes. And nonetheless that you can now invite a tiny part of Amazonas into your living room. I’m looking forward to hanging it on my own wall at home and dream myself far away into the layers of the rainforest, its mysteries and its calmness” - Andrea Elisabeth Rudolph.
