The SACRED UNION TopRatna - Mata Dewi
I love this top worn as a set to yoga, or worn on its own casually with denim
or a high waist skirt. I’m always designing to be able to take the Warriors wardrobe from yoga to dinner, to beach to prayer. The cross in front of the heart center at both front and back reminds me to find balance in the sacred union between our masculine and feminine nature.
My RAM RAM range is inspired by my travels through India. India helped me see the world from the complete opposite perspective and therefore the experience itself collapsed a lot of conditionings that were ingrained in me growing up in Western Society.
My fav place in India was PUSHKAR. I was particularly attracted and drawn to attend the closing ceremony of the lake that worshipped the energy of BRAHMA each night at 5.30pm. After 4 days of attending the ceremony, the ceremony gatekeeper started to recognize me and smiled at me and a small group chatted and smiled to me afterwards. The next day I was walking though the street and the gatekeeper from the ceremony saw me from across the street, lifted his arms and waved out to me and yelled ‘RAM RAM’. I looked up, saw him and met his large smile with one of my own. And that moment the has stayed with me in my heart ever since - so has that lake, that ceremony and that small gypsy town.
The print for the range was originally designed in collaboration with illustrator Maude Guesne & then completed into digital pattern placement and design in collaboration with Hayley Wenn from Yinside Yoga. Hayley and I both resonate on doing our best to make everything we create as sustainable as possible and so with this product we have worked with recycled material and sustainable digital placement when printing to ensure we minimize wastage from cut-offs as much as possible.
Designer notes for fit:
If you scroll the photos you’ll see I have given you the up close digital print files that best represent the color. Remember that once they are on the body, the material stretches and on it will look lighter. We have done our very best to try and post photos that best represent the color. The purple photos the sample is 1.5cm longer in the body than actual production, so best to look at pink photos for the length of the top and way it fits Shantal.
We proudly produce our clothing fairly and under ethical working conditions. :)
