• Fabric is lightweight and breathable. The feel is extremely soft and glides over the skin.

This concept was inspired by the ancient Dharmachakra or Dharma Wheel - the eight-spoked wheel depicted at the center of this piece. These spokes represent the "Noble Eightfold Path": the eight practices thought to lead humanity to liberation from Samsara (the cycle of rebirth). The endless knots, borders and eyes are there to represent protection through your journey. The endless knot is constructed from something representing matter, and inside of the knot represents the space between, symbolic of the spirit. Together, this demonstrates the co-dependence of wisdom and compassion.
To put our intent of this garment in layman's terms, it was meant to represent the notion of overcoming obstacles, difficulties and challenges we face through life in the most sanctifying way. This artwork symbolizes our spiritual progression as individuals and serves as a reminder of our testing path to enlightenment. In Hinduism, Dharma represents order. In the holy texts, it represents the law which each individual should follow. The endless cycles of existence: learning and relearning to elevate and evolve as humans. With the memories of happiness and pain throughout life in mind, creating this was a deeply moving experience.
There's more to write about this piece and a plethora of interpretations on the symbolism. We send our love and gratitude to everyone reading this. We wish you the most in all your endeavors. Never give up, and never stop pursuing the greatest version of yourself.

This is my third pashmina from RNA and it's just as comfy as the rest. I like the brighter designs they went with on the Dharma series as the colors really stand out
