Symbolism of Lotus
“The Soul Spreads Itself Like a Lotus With Innumerable Petals” (Khalil Gibran).
For Centuries, the Flower Has Been Identified as Symbolizing Strong Wisdom.
Neqwa’s lotus textile has unique properties: it is naturally soft, light, breathable, and almost wrinkle-free. As it doesn’t contain any chemical or toxic product, it is probably the most ecological fabric in the world. Furthermore, it is spinned and woven by hand following ancestral techniques. We transform a stem that would have turned to waste into a quality textile, while not using any polluting energy during the entirety of the production process. 40.000 stems of lotus flowers are needed to make 3.000 meters of lotus thread, which is used to make 1 square meter of lotus fabric.
