Wrap yourself in warmth and softness with one of our heirloom ready-to-wear pieces. Yeshi Cowl, in soft Baby Yak, will take you from fall to winter. It can easily wrap twice around your neck in a snug embrace or worn soft around your shoulders.
The repetitive lace design wants to represent the balance between light and darkness. Light that pierces through the little eyelets and darkness created by the rhythmic cables that give the texture the right density. In astronomical terms, the balance between day and night changes constantly throughout the year, but twice a year there is a point of equilibrium between the two when both day and night are nearly equal across the planet. Today we found ourselves in that perfect equilibrium also known as Autumn Equinox. Equinox comes from the Latin words aequi, which means equal, and nox, or night.
The equinox has been celebrated since ancient history in many cultures. In the Japanese Buddhist tradition, the equinox is followed by a holiday called Ohigan, which literally means “the other shore”. This “other shore” is linked to enlightenment, and thus, this holiday is connected to six practices (paramitas) that are believed to lead to it: generosity, morality, perseverance, concentration, meditation and wisdom.
So it is on this auspicious day, on the beginning of this new season, when we strive to find our own inner balance, that we want to offer you this special piece we have created. Whether for yourself or a loved one, our Yashi cowl is a great addition to your wardrobe.
Yeshi Cowl comes in five colors and is produced in an artisanl mill in Italy in limited numbers only.
