The Medicine Wheel is a symbol found across many indigenous nations. The teachings and concepts vary slightly between communities. However, the most common shared symbolism speaks to the four directions, natural elements, states of being, medicines, and phases of life.
Our physical world is composed of four classic elements; water, fire, earth, and air. These elements are considered important energy forces and as a part of the medicine wheel, used as a guide and teaching tool for personal growth and learning. The 2018 spring collection introduces the water element.
An element we cannot, as humans, live without. On a high vibrational scale, water represents cleansing, purifying, movement, and fluidity. With its polarizing nature, it also symbolizes coldness, stillness, and destruction–an energy of danger and darkness. The Water Collection is about moving through uncertainty and fear with self-compassion. This spring, let courage be your north star as you navigate the uncharted waters of self fear and brave the horizon for new adventures.
The Water Collection introduces the water floral. The teal and blue hues connect back to the water element. The curved outlines and soft shapes celebrate Chippewa woodland floral design.
