Lotus Flower is a shawl with a delicate body made of many tiny leaves and a lavishly laced edging inspired by the most beautiful flower of lotus.

Lotus is one of the most perfect flowers in the world. It grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. At night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again. Untouched by the impurity, lotus symbolizes the purity of heart and mind. The lotus flower represents long life, health, honor and good luck.

•Purple: Mysticism
