Lotus Arts de Vivre, a leading luxury lifestyle brand, is once again holding "The Origin Of Beauty" campaign offering special discounts on remarkable handcrafted items from Thursday July 29 to Aug 6.

This is an opportunity to purchase exquisite accessories and fine decor items at half price while contributing to a charitable cause with 10% of net income going to support impoverished breast cancer patients at Pink Park Village.

Located in Nong Chok of Bangkok, the non-profit holistic convalescence home and hospice is operated under the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer Foundation for underprivileged terminally ill patients. The project is run by Dr Kris Chatamra, a surgeon specialising in oncology and also chairman of the foundation.

This is the second edition of the charity campaign held to celebrate the birthday of the luxury gallery's co-founder Helen von Bueren. Last year, the campaign raised 600,000 baht for Pink Park Village.

Among the glamorous works of art on offer at a 50% discount include an enamel ballet dancer brooch that features an elegant combination of yellow south-sea baroque pearl, grey cornflake pearls, enamel, and 9 carat gold and black rhodium-plated sterling silver work; and earrings made from precious stones including emerald, ruby, diamond, blue and yellow sapphire.

Other highlight pieces are the 80-year-old Art Deco diamond and ruby bracelet in 18 carat yellow gold; the elegant Art Deco scarab ring with diamonds; the Balinese painted bamboo handbag with butterfly; and the silver elephant handbag with pink tourmaline.

Designed to be a perfect attraction for any home are the hand-knotted wall carpet featuring scarab dragon; the sea turtle wooden bowl crafted from a single piece of teak wood; and the hand-crafted brown leather lion stool with its features accented with metal.

The campaign also offers a crystal goblet worth 20,000 baht as a special gift for guests who spend 150,000 baht. They can choose between the goblet with a cloisonne base and one with a red lacquer base.

All items are on display at Lotus Arts de Vivre's flagship boutique at Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel. Online purchases can be made via lotusartsdevivre.com.
