Sense of Place

In so many ways, Ravel represents where we’ve come from and the places we’ve travelled to. The graphic work in our pieces reflects that. Each motif symbolizes a geographic/urban landscape that has shaped the way to our studio in Berlin.

The Bodensee Travel Bag is inspired by the lake in Southern Germany. Us Ravel ladies voyaged there on our way from California to Berlin. The sense of awe that transpired from its seemingly perfect glassy surface, the way it reflected the colors of the late evening, and the snow-covered Swiss Alps across the way inspired such a strong spiritual insight in each of us that has continued to carry us here at home in Berlin.
