The Wishbone.

The Wishbone continues to act as a key COY symbol.

Future Inspiration-Hand of Fatima

The eye-in-the-hand is a spiritual icon found among Asian, Middle-eastern and Native American cultures. Also called the "Hamsa", the symbol is usually worn for protection, happiness, health and wealth. The Hamsa also protects the wearer from the evil eye. The Hand of Fatima was also a common symbol of Mexico and the Southeastern United States.

The embroidered cloth here provides a great inspiration for COY future embroidery.

Vibrant colours are difficult to replicate when producing eco-friendly items and are not cost effective.
They are, however, very pleasing to the eye.
COY may produce it's own version of these symbols.

It's been a whole year...

...since the last post!

How time fly's by.
So it's back on with the show. COY is re surfacing for a summer of delights.
The cogs have been oiled and are now turning gracefully!

So what's been happening?

Jobs have shifted, moods have altered, creativity has spread itself across a number of projects, and yet it always comes back to COY.
Nothing has touched upon what COY set out to do, even with a year away...

So let's pick it back up.

New ideas and techniques have come to light and COY is about to start a new venture.

All will be revealed...

Welcome back!
