Description

"Come into the life of the body, the one body
Granted to you in all the history of time.
Come into the body’s economy, its daily work,
And its replenishment at mealtimes and at night.
Come into the body’s thanksgiving, when it knows
And acknowledges itself a living soul.
Come into the dance of the community, joined
In a circle, hand in hand, the dance of the eternal
Love of women and men for one another
And of neighbors and friends for one another."

~Wendell Berry, from The Mad Farmer, Flying the Flag of Rough Branch, Secedes from the Union

In Himalayan tradition, prayer flags are hung outside where the wind and elements carry their wishes across the land. Their decay is evidence that the wishes have been dispersed. These nondenominational flags are naturally dyed with black walnuts, eucalyptus, sumac and other organic materials I ethically forage for on my travels and in the landscapes surrounding my southern Vermont studio. The hand drawn, screen printed design is intended to be both decorative and contemplative. (The hand gestures are only that, not sign language for anything that I'm aware of.)

The details: Each string has 6 raw edge flags that each measure 6" x 8". They are sewn on a length of hemp twine which is 7' long. The printing is done with water-based ink.

Note: Assorted colors. Your flags will be similar skin toned colors, but may be different from the flags pictured.

If they are hung outside and caressed by the sun, rain and wind, the colors are likely to fade and birds may begin to borrow threads for their nests. As decay is part of the purpose of these flags, the natural dyes and fibers ensure that they are safely biodegradable for the environment.
