The shawl pattern is inspired by Russian traditional women’s belts of the 18th century.

Belts in Russia were an integral part of the traditional costume. Belts performed several functions simultaneously: practical, protective, symbolic, magic and esthetic. Belts in traditional cultures represented an important detail of men’s, women’s and kids’ garments. Accessories necessary in everyday life were fastened to belts, such as: women’s keys, combs, purses; men’s arms, pipes, tobacco pouches. Beyond their purely utilitarian function, belts held symbolical significance. Tied round a person’s body, the belt represented a self-contained circle that, according to folk beliefs, barred a way to evil spirits and protected from malefice. 

Woven belts in the shape of a ribbon symbolized the road, the life journey. It’s no coincidence that ribbons on our scarf are adjoined by the running horses harnessed to carts and carriages, locking into a cross as a symbol of eternal circle of life.
