Lotus. . . the most regal of flowers. An enduring symbol of purity & devotion, spiritual awakening & enlightenment.
Imbued with the spirituality of the lotus flower, lotus fabric is the rarest and most sacred natural fiber. The noble art of lotus weaving originated over a century ago with one woman's desire to weave a set of pure lotus monk's robes to honor an eminent Buddhist Abbot.
The making of lotus yarn this is done meticulously by hand and requires great patience and time. Lotus stems are collected, cut, and twisted to release the fine lotus filaments. Several strands are rolled together to create the yarn, which is spun multiple times to increase its strength. Eventually the natural fiber yarn is woven on traditional handlooms.
