Classical antiquity meets modern textile design in Meandros. The collection is predominantly inspired by ancient Greek ornament and draws especially on the Greek ‘Meander’, more popularly known as the Greek fret or Greek key pattern, symbolising the eternal flow of life.

It is believed to get its name from the ancient river Maendros in Asia Minor (present day Turkey) whose meandering path is emulated by these lines. Some believe it to be representative of the labyrinth Theseus escaped from after slaying the Minotaur (a popular tale from Greek mythology), symbolic of overcoming inner fear before achieving victory in life.

This motif has appeared in many different incarnations throughout different periods of history, widely seen in Egyptian, Roman, Byzantine, Arabic and Oriental design. The Acanthus motif seen complementing the geometric meanders is reminiscent of the decorative ornament on Roman Corinthian capitals.

The collection is expertly handcrafted, with exquisite Persian ‘zardosi’, modern appliqué and oriental stylizing for a truly global and multicultural appeal.
