Let me introduce you to all the folk of Lir Shop and Lir Space!
Mira Asriningtyas is the owner of Lir Shop. She usually call it her 'baby'. She is the proud mother of baby Lir. It was her long old dream to own such space with mini bookstore, curiosity shop, art space and anything-homemade resto. You can 'meet' her in her blog "The Picnic Girl".
Dito and Ila
Dito is Mira's partner. He is assisting Mira in running the art space as well as being the program director of Lir. So if you want to make an event or want to exhibit your work, feel free to contact him. Aside from that, he is a photographer, a writer, he makes magazine (www.huffmagazine.com) and you can find more about him in his web: www.ditoyuwono.com
Ila (Mirla) is Mira's youngest sister who regularly help assisting in financial report and workshops held in Lir. She is a very sweet young lady, a passionate knitter, and she's enrolling collage this year. Their other sister, Mirna, sometime helps in Lir during summer break. Some of you might be familiar with this trio..Mira, Mirna, Mirla who used to open Milky Moo milkshop in 2008-2011 and Cups Little Cafe in 2008-2010.
So by now, I bet you all can see how Lir is actually one big family, right? ;)
