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 black scarves on a black & white warp follow a traditional mudyom yarn tie-dye pattern. They are adorned inconspicuously with powerful 5 mm Tourmaline Quartz stones and embroidered with the word 'Magnetism'

Feeling (attracted to the colour) black?


Wearing the colour black is a tribute to the darkness of night.  It is the primordial void, a MYSTIC ALLURE, a colour that lacks colour, ranging from being authoritative with zero tolerance in its obscurest origins to seeking neutrality and compromise as the shades lighten.


Black is real sensation,
even if it is produced
by entire absence of light.

~ Hermann von Helmholtz
(physician & physicist,
1821-1894)

Faith is an invisible & invincible magnet;
it
 attracts to itself whatever it fervently
desires 
& calmly & persistently expects.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
(essayist, lecturer, & poet,
1803-1882)
