Kalon Azure was first created in September 2015, when the two of us were on our way to Bergen for an interview with Ziggy Alberts. Our vision was to create a space where we could write about everything and anything that was on our minds. The word Kalon has greek roots and means "beauty that is more than skin deep". Azure has arabic roots and means "bright blue in color like a cloudless sky". We wanted a name that represented what we really stand for - that beauty isn't just what you wear or look like. It exists inside all of us. And that although we don't all have the same horizons, we all live under the same sky.
Together we are searching for everyday beauty and adventure, art and ourselves. Learning to truly appreciate the world we live in by exploring movements, sustainability, and the beauty of everything people often take for granted, like the spiced taste of warm water infused with flowers and herbs and the sweet sound of rain against your window.
From feminism and self love, to health, sustainability and music. We are sharing our travels, so you can take part and explore the world with us. We share the thoughts we have at 2 am and poetry that shake us to our core. Music that heal broken hearts and interviews with people who inspire us to be more creative, conscious and kind. Overall we want to make people talk and start a discussion about how we all live our lives. Lets all take part in making the world open its mind.
Kalon Azure is a platform where people can express themselvese by sharing their art, experiences, thoughts, dreams and inspirations. Our goal is to build a community where we can all support each other, learn about self- acceptance and expression, and celebrate the beauty and uniqueness that comes from within.

Meet the founders:
Hi, my name is Nora Marie.
To start off, I often find it hard to introduce myself, but I am 17 years old and I live in Norway. I love to write, take photos, do yoga and find a more sustainable way to live life.
My writing will of course not be perfect, and I apologize for the mistakes. Ultimately I hope I can evolve as a writer and as a person. Let's start some discussions and make life a bit more interesting and authentic.
Hopefully, you can get to know more about me through my writing.
Hi love, my name is Martine.
I live in a city named Stavanger, along the Norwegian coast, and I am fond of sunny mornings, french villages, slow fashion, yoga and photography.
Writing has always been a passion of mine, from stories and poems to letters and travel diaries. This website is a place where I can do exactly what I love: explore art, dreams, and society. To write about the things that keep me going, what fascinates me and the things that inspire me most.
Lastly, I hope this website is a place where people can find advice, love and support. And that it is a place where we can heal together and celebrate self expression.
Since Kalon Azure was first created, our team has grown. Nora is 20 years old and studies journalism in her born city in Spain. She will be writing for Kalon Azure weekly and her articles will be up every Sunday. This girl is a fan of R&B and jazzy Caribbean/Brazilian music, but won't say no to a Rolling Stones CD. She loves prehistory and this will definitely influence her writing. She will be exploring different cultures, interview people who inspires us and delve into topics you otherwise might not have known about.

Kalon Azure Vintage:
August 30 marks the day that our online vintage store finally opened. Kalon Azure Vintage is a way for us to be a part of the slow fashion movement, and connect with all of you beautiful people within this community. One of the many things we love about second hand clothing, is the fact that each item is telling a different story, and therefore gives you the opportunity to express yourself in a different way than while wearing mass-produced clothing.
This is true style, this is true self-expression; it is unique, ethical & sustainable.
With that being said, we often find ourselves influenced by French style, especially after spending time there the summer of 2017. Our vision is to go back to the roots when clothing was simple, elegant and feminine, and mix it up with some modern elements. All items can of course be worn by anyone and everywhere. Feel free to read more about our vision here.
