Love Specs present…
The Love Lounge
Change your perception, change the world!
We are thrilled Love Specs are joining us again this year to support of their incredible charity.
Love Support Unite is a sustainable grassroots charity that tackles the causes of poverty holistically. They work with Malawian communities on projects that elevate people from poverty, by enabling self-sufficiency, through education, enterprise, health, & permaculture.
Love Specs fund LSU and they might be how they met you or how you found out about them! Love Specs make friends and show you that love is all around. So far, the sale of over 10 000 pairs have helped dreams become a reality in Malawi. Love Specs are endorsed by incredible festivals and artists, the perfect party accessory, which is why they’ve been lucky enough to make friends at festivals all over the world who have continued to support LSU and are part of the extended Love Specs family.
Come and find them at the Love Lounge, a beautiful chill out spot for you to get comfy and find out what they’re all about!
Workshops to BLING your Love Specs daily!
