For our designs, we were looking for something that can be intense and soothing at the same time. Something that can significantly change the aura of our homes and surrounding. Something that can empower us & impact our lives positively just by its physical presence.

We found everything we’ve been looking and more in the Mandala.

Mandala is basically any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents cosmos metaphysically or symbolically. The word “Mandala” means Circle. It also represents wholeness, totality of “Self”, & our relation to the Infinity.

In various spiritual traditions, Mandalas are used as a spiritual guidance tool, for establishing a sacred space, and as an aid to meditation.

We studied on the Mandalas that were made so far and began implementing them on our products. Our products – Throws, Roundies, Tote Bags, have Mandala Designs embellished on them.

Carl Jung, a Swiss psychoanalyst who has been credited for re-introduction of Mandala into Modern Western thought, wrote –

“I sketched every morning in a notebook a small circular drawing,…which seemed to correspond to my inner situation at the time….Only gradually did I discover what the mandala really is: …the Self, the wholeness of the personality, which if all goes well is harmonious.”
