Antoine de Saint Exupery "The Little Prince"

'Lilli Marlene' in vitro Lietuva

Consequently the project "Friends of Roses" was initiated in 2011 and the first collection of "Lilli Marlene in vitro Lietuva" was created in collaboration with glass-work artists and young designers searching for the new original decor ideas.
