Rose and Scorpio bootie is a fruit of In Her Shoes; a participatory art project which is composed of 7 different hand-woven booties featuring a ‘healing’ symbol each, as well as their interpretation by 7 female performance and dance artists.
Rose motifs used on the border express hope for good luck and happiness. Repeated use of the scorpion motif means the bootie was woven as a means of protection against malice. The scorpion can also be used as a symbol of pride and liberty.
The half comb is a symbol of evil eye and prosperity.
Handmade by Ayfer.
As with almost all handmade pieces; the booties can be woven in slightly different ways though the essential design is always the same. We believe that these unique imperfections are the reason to love them more.
