Lab ZEN 2 is a workshop able to reply to market's challenges but also is a place of social redemption, appropriation of an identity and affirmation of legality. The Lab passing along social and materials obstacles, combined with the desire to do, the creativity and the skills of women coming from different backgrounds, fight for a project animated both by ideals and by a typically feminine concreteness. The outputs rewarded the product with an immediate market success.
