The Story Behind: First Incantation in Chiffon
This sumptuous blue and orange silk incantation scarf does not only add a feast of playful and energetic colours to your life, but it also helps you leave your home with confidence and ease! By keeping your demons at bay and reflecting the gaze of the outside world, The colourful scarf gives you a double layer of protection by invoking the power of a repetitive phrase and a reflected gaze.
The Arabic phrase (hilloo an teezna)* is written meditatively and repetitively to create the shapes of the doodly creatures, and to invoke our inner powers to put a stop to everyone and anyone who stands in our way of self healing, whether they are internal (our demons) or external (our societies)!
The eyes are used to reflect the gaze, the gaze of our inner demons and the gaze of those on the streets, the gaze of anyone who dares to other us, exclude us, objectify us, orientalise us, fetishise, and terrorise us wherever they may be; in the homeland or in exile.
*literally translates to leave our arses alone or stop nipping at our arses.
