Hand-woven by Buddhist nuns with 100% Eri silk. The yarn originates from the silk worm farm of an NGO on a mission to educating ‘Hill Tribes’ children. These cuddly soft aubergine scarves on a purple & pink warp are adorned inconspicuously with powerful 4 mm Amethyst crystals and embroidered with the word 'Wisdom'

Feeling (attracted to the colour) purple?  


Majestic purple and violet embody the balance of stimulating reds and calming blues so the undertone is crucial as to whether the hues uplift or soothe the mind.  With its distinct flair of mystique it promotes spirituality and wisdom


Born in the scientific purple.
 
~George Howard Darwin
(astronomer & mathematician,
1845-1912)

Amethyst is a mighty protective stone; it encourages selflessness, spiritual awareness & psychic abilities. It stimulates the mind & helps the wearer to find focus. This crystal strengthens the immune system, eases headaches & releases tension. 


— With reigning gentle kings in mind

Wisdom of Regal Grace


Our spiritual Wisdom & inner peace is invoked by Amethyst through transformation. Indulge yourself in the colour purple, with its intensity worthy to crown & embrace all nobility of worldly & other transcendent empires, as Regal Grace descends upon your higher realm of awareness.


Knowledge speaks,
 
but wisdom listens. ~Jimi Hendrix
