Mahtab, meaning moonlight in Persian, is our hand block print collection inspired by our travels to Turkey - its magnificent architecture from the era of the Ottoman Empire, stunning flora fauna, pomegranate ~ the fruit of paradise as the Turkish call it, and more specifically the Whirling Dervish.
Sufi whirling is a form of meditation through which Dervishes aim to become one with their inner self. This calls for abandoning ego or personal desires, by listening to the music, focusing on God, and spinning in repetitive circles. Rumi, the 13th-century Sufi mystic believed in the power of dance and music as a means of liberation from worldly limitations.
Dancers wearing long white gowns and high hats begin with slower turns. Gradually, the spinning becomes faster and dancers appear to move in a state of ecstatic trance. It must be a miracle that despite spinning for hours, Dervishes don't faint or lose balance. Their physical self is moving but the mind is focused. Mahtab takes a leaf of inspiration from this soul cleansing ritual.
A beautiful combination of utility and design, our ottomans will find a fit in any space. Break the monotony of pastels and wood with a pop of color, and while at it, don't forget to marvel at the finesse and handcraft of each piece. Featuring solid wood legs and velvet upholstery.
