Why S A L I Y A?
Because Everyone LOVES a good Love story, right?
Prince Saliya was heir to the throne, being the son of King Dutugamunu, the most powerful and legendary King of Sri Lanka.
Saliya fell in love with a beautiful girl named Asokamala, a commoner.
He renounced the throne and all privileges of a royal Life choosing Love, marrying Asokamala.
The word “Saliya” is rooted in Dravidian languages meaning “spider”, a symbol of weaving and connection.
The traditional story is that the Saliya people were a caste of weavers who wove clothes with sacred silk thread for a royal family in India.
Weaving and particularly calico has a rich history.
Mahatma Gandhi, an icon for peace and social participation, (who was not a perfect man), recognised the importance of education, self-reliance and self-sufficiency.
He learned how to spin thread and weave his own cloth.
Then he taught his people to do so too.
First, he learned, then he taught.
The spider as a symbol is steeped in rich legend, seen in various traditions as representing creativity, wisdom keepers, creators and helpers.
A “sutta or “sutra” refers to threads or teachings of knowledge in both Pali (the ancient language of Theravada Buddhism) and Sanskrit (an ancient language of India).
The Threads Are The Essence.
Fabrics and blank canvases represent INFINITE possibilities and continuous improvement.
While the final painted canvas or woven fabric is important, the detail & SPIRIT of what has gone into this item is fundamental.
