petalune color & stones
Colors and stones have a magnetic vibration and an intrinsic energy. The colors of the cashmere for this collection are inspired by the Eastern Chakra system. Each sweater is embroidered with semi-precious stones that have been specially selected for particular healing qualities.
The Chakra System:
“Chakra” originates from the sanskrit word for wheel or disk. There are seven major chakras within each of us, positioned vertically from the base of the spine to the top of the head. Each chakra transmits and transforms energy.
Healing the Chakras:
Chakras can be energetically excessive or deficient. A deficient chakra has little energy moving through it. The use of color and gemstones can help to strengthen and balance the chakra system.
