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.
