Pógíní Gréine’, the Irish for ‘freckles’, literally translates as `little kisses of the sun.’
In many cultures freckles are seen as ‘imperfections’, blemishes, stains on an otherwise unmarred face! But I absolutely love them- on bellies, on knees, on tiny little cheeks.
The spirit of FRKL is a two fingered salute to everyone who ever told you you were less than “perfect”, that some attribute, some physical characteristic was not enough. Not deemed sexy enough, not in line with whatever bullshit ideal is being pedalled at any given time.
YOU ARE PERFECT.
Your rolls and lines, your marks, blemishes, the experiences written on your face and buried in your beautiful body.
You are unique and one-of-a-kind.
And so is FRKL.
