Effortlessly Messy with Art Materials

Speaking of messy, I hope you guys can join us on Saturday at Common Thread in Rockwell for the Bensimon DIY Series! 🙂

Bensimon DIY Art Materials

Bensimon is a sneaker brand from France.  It’s made of canvas and it’s fullly customizable.  They have so many colors too! 🙂

The Bensimon brand has been around since 1975 and it started as a Tennis sneaker.

So, when we got invited to the Bensimon DIY sneaker session earlier this month and we were happy to be part of the colorful event.

Participants get to choose if they want to get messy with textile paint, add a personal touch to their footwear with buttons or even play with colorful markers.Girls of Craft MNL

The event was hosted by none other than the girls of Craft MNL.  It was so nice to get to catch up with them and get some crafty insights in between the DIY session. 🙂

Bensmion DIY Series Common Thread Rockwell

On April 25, Saturday, those who love the brand will also get to expeirence the same DIY session.  🙂 Craft MNL will be stationed at the Common Thread Greenbelt branch while Ponggo and I will be at the Rockwell branch. 🙂

Customizing Bensimon Sneakers with Threads

If you’re afraid to play with paint and you don’t want to commit to a design, I suggest you sew buttons and play with threads.  If you want to start over again, you can always snip off the thread & remove what you’ve done. Hehehe. 🙂

Maricel Laxa & Daughter

During Bensimon’s DIY series, among others Maricel Laxa also came totally supportive of her two daughters who also got to customize their own pair of sneakers. 🙂
