As the wonderful season of gift giving is approaching, we are bringing back our community’s favourite Gift Boxes. This is the perfect gift of vegan and friendly haircare with a unique design, ready to gift to either to yourself or someone special.
For this year’s limited-edition Gift Boxes, we have collaborated with the Swedish artist Siri Carlén to explore the connections between the scents and visual experiences. The scents of each of Maria Nila’s Care & Style ranges have been interpreted and resulted in six colourful and artistic beauty depots, also made to be reused as storage for your daily beauty favourites or desktop essentials. The Gift Boxes are stocked exclusively at salons and online at marianila.co.uk.
Siri Carlen is a Swedish artist, illustrator and designer who composes fabrics for major interior brands, clothes for celebrities, sculptures for global exhibitions and art pieces for display windows. Siri describes herself as close to obsessed with colours inspired by nature and historical crafts, which also is a part of her interpretations behind the design of this year’s Gift Boxes.
“All fragrances appear different; thick, thin, bright or pale. Others have distinct personalities like a wobbly line or a blob. You just have to be playful and have an open mind to see their connected perceptions.”
– Siri Carlén on her inspiration behind the creating process.
This year’s Gift Boxes
Each Gift Box contains a Shampoo 350ml and Conditioner 300ml from one of our Care & Style range, so you can find the best set for your haircare needs. The Gift Boxes also come with a True Soft Argan Oil 30ml as an additional gift from us. The True Soft Argan Oil is quickly absorbed into the hair and adds moisture without weighing the hair down, and has a soft scent of vanilla, rose and jasmine.
As with all Maria Nila products, the Gift Boxes and the products are 100% vegan and animal friendly. The products are produced in Sweden, guaranteeing healthy working conditions and high quality of ingredients.
