Why S A L I Y A?

 

The word “Saliya” is rooted in Dravidian languages meaning “spider”, a symbol of weaving.

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 change, recognized the importance of self-reliance and being self-sufficient.

 

He himself learned how to spin thread and weave his own cloth.

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 endless possibilities and New Beginnings.

While the final painted canvas or woven fabric is important, the detail of what has gone into this item is fundamental.

 

And, Because Everyone needs 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 privilege of a royal Life choosing Love, marrying Asokamala.
