LAND OF THE LAMA

Remote and situated at high altitude, the former Buddhist kingdom of Ladakh offers a rough yet unequalled scenic beauty. Gompas and stupas crown rocky mountain tops amid meditanional mani stone walls inscribed with countless Lamaist prayers. Colourful fluttering prayer flags spread their spiritual messages with the mountain breeze. Inspired by the spectacular landscape and heritage of Ladakh, we worked with highly textured cotton fabrics and hand-dyed them in the traditional colors of the Ladakhi culture. The cushions feature embroideries as well as embellishments with Buddhist inscriptions.
