The Circle of Life Collection :
Polka Dot in Firey Red with Fine Gold Zari, Polka Dot in Charcoal Gray with Fine Gold Zari Trimmings is a Classic, Cozy, and Darling Stole with handwoven details. The Circle of Life, as a philosophical concept, means that we start at the end and end in the beginning. Our lives, from beginning to end resemble a complete full circle. No matter how big or small the circle is, it ends in the exact same way for everyone; Red Throughout history, red has signaled excitement, dynamism and heat. The color of life and the color of danger, the color of romance and the color of excitement, red elicits the strongest of emotions in every culture. Red is the highest arc of the rainbow, the longest wavelength of color and is believed to be the first color that a baby sees. Just as a child is drawn to candy, we are irresistibly drawn to red; a physiological attraction that is beyond our control. Advancing forward in our line of vision, it is the never-to-be-ignored hue that instantly commands our attention from early infancy on.
A beautiful, whimsical stole is one of the stunning examples of the art of hand weaving. The shades of charcoal and gold give a nice pattern . The stole is made from 100% handspun cotton; it's soft and gentle and yet it has a nice texture, which makes it fall nicely around your neck or shoulders. As all stoles from Makimono's collections, this vibrant emerald stole is handmade and comes from the town of Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India.
