A generously proportioned cotton silk scarf that doubles up as turban, sling bag, wall hanging or sarong, this hand blockprinted piece from MATTER features the Pomegranate motif, designed in collaboration with Ms Browns Lounge!
THE POMEGRANATE: Manifold in meaning, the Armenian national fruit has been attributed towards the immortality of the soul. Its symmetrical and repetitive print is a modern interpretation of the abundance of seeds inside a pomegranate, signifying prosperity, fertility and generosity.
THIS EDITION IS DESIGNED IN LISMORE, AUSTRALIA AND BLOCK-PRINTED AND STITCHED BY MATTER’S ARTISAN PARTNERS IN JAIPUR, INDIA.
You will also receive as a gift, a limited edition ‘Pomegranate’ Screenprint handprinted by me exclusively for the launch.
Inspired by her Armenian-Dutch roots and drawing inspiration from the intricate patterns of her great grandfather’s rugs, the Pomegranate motif is manifold in meaning.
The Armenian national fruit has been attributed towards the immortality of the soul while its abundance of seeds signifies its various healing properties, as well as prosperity, fertility and generosity.
MATTER is a socially motivated brand focusing on affordable luxury, thoughtful design and provenance, connecting rural textile artisans and urban designers to create travel ware with stories to tell. Our mission is threefold – to foster designer-artisan collaborations, inspire consumers to value provenance and process, and pioneer industry change and sustainability for rural textile communities.
They are inspired by travel. Story driven, community based, built on direct relationships and commitment to respecting provenance. Founded in 2014, they began simply with the intention to make where and why something is made, and by whom, matter. An idea borne of conversations and late night dreaming between two friends, Yvonne and Ren, became a mission to make connected clothing – pieces carrying handcrafted grace in each thread and cultural heritage in their colours and shapes.
Ms Browns Lounge loves MATTER and we’re so proud to be collaborating with them!
