MARI – hand-spun sofa throw in green grass with pale indigo/yellow warp

Availability: In stock

£243.00

Like its sibling HONY from Sakon Nakhon province, this gorgeous sofa throw is hand-woven with hand-spun & wildly harvested cotton in Mukdahan on the eastern border with Laos. The 12 cm fringe at both ends is embellished with 10 mm Aventurine crystals which are colour coordinated with the botanical green weft dyes on a light indigo-yellow warp (vertical threads including fringe). Appliquéd in a cotton stitch, this creation finds its completion in the mantra 'Tranquillity'.

Feeling (attracted to the colour) green?  


It balances & refreshes us with its cool & warm nuances from ‘forest’ to ‘lime’ appointing ‘olive’ to be the ambassador of peace & ecology


Green is the prime colour of the world,
and that
 from which its loveliness arises.
~Pedro Calderon de la Barca
(dramatist, poet & writer, 1600-1681)

Aventurine is also known as the stone of prosperity; it enables a razor-sharp mind & protects against the invasion of the heart at times when adverse intensions are at play. A beautiful marriage of emotional & intellectual intelligence.


— To honour the environment within and around us

Tranquillity of Green Man


Aventurine Is in perfect alignment with the energy of Tranquillity, prosperity & peace. Welcome the Green Man, ruler of flora & fauna, into your aura & activate your own healing innocence as you unite with the vital spirit of all things natural.


Great tranquillity of the heart is his
who cares for neither praise not blame.
~Thomas à Kempis
(copyist & writer, c. 1380-1471)
