WEAR YOUR PRAYERS SHIRT DRESSRatna - Mata Dewi
Introducing my Wear Your Prayers range. This range was inspired from my travels to India and is intended to be a deep honoring to the people of hindu faith and religion.
I want to be clear that I cannot take credit for the design. These symbols in the design are ancient and do not belong to me. They are protocol symbols of the Hindu Religion - symbols designed to lead us to make spiritual progress. There are some beautiful spiritual intentions behind the symbols in this dress, hence, why I called this range Wear your Prayers.
Various similar prints to this one can be found widespread across India. I have reproduced a sarong design I found in India with a higher quality/longer lasting material & also ensuring it could be made under fair & ethical conditions for both my workers and the environment.
About the design - If there is any color that can symbolize all aspects of Hinduism, it's saffron - the color of Agni or fire, which reflects the Supreme Being. Buddhist monks and Hindu saints wear robes of this color as a mark of renunciation of material life. So with reverence & respect I intentionally chose to print the symbols with this color.
Some of the sacred Hindu symbols represented in the design are:
Shivas Trident ( Trishul) - the personal weapon of Lord Shiva, The Trishul has three pointed blades that denote several Trinities such as that of creation, maintenance, and destruction or that of the Three Kalas ‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚àö¬® Past, Present, and Future or that of the Three Gunas ‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚àö¬® Sattva, Rajas, and Tamas).
Kalachakra, 'wheel, or circle, of time,' is the symbol of perfect creation, of the cycles of existence. Time and space are interwoven, and eight spokes mark the directions, each ruled by a Deity and having a unique quality.
Tiruvadi, the sacred sandals worn by saints, sages and satgurus, symbolize the preceptor's holy feet, which are the source of his grace. Prostrating before him, we humbly touch his feet for release from worldliness. Aum.
Om, or Aum, is the root mantra and primal sound from which all creation issues forth. It is associated with Lord Ganesha. Its three syllables stand at the beginning and end of every sacred verse, every human act.
This shirt dress style has become one of my fav staple patterns. It's just so damn comfy and sexy and effortless. Love a dress you can relax your stomach in. The s/m suze should fit up to a size 16 comfortably. We adjusted the arm cuffs to be slightly wider than previous shirt dresses after receiving some feedback from size 16 goddesses that this dress was perfect, but needed this slight adjustment. We listened to this feedback so now it should be a perfect fit for Australian sizes 8-16.
Please note: in the sample pictures you will see that some symbols are reversed. That's because we decided we liked the backside of the screen print better than the front side. So we made up the samples this way. You can rest assured that the symbol placement for production has been rectified with symbols facing the correct way.
