Roots, The Dacian Draco
Roots. The closer you are to them they may seem like shackles, the further you are from them they are just the anchor you need to sail the seven seas. This item is part of my quest to recognize the importance of my roots, despite living half of my life away from them. I believe I am not the only one who thinks about this and I hope some of my feelings resonate with you. The Dacian Draco is a special symbol for me, as I was born close to Sarmizegetusa Regia and I wanted to showcase its timeless power and beauty in an item we can wear in our modern life. Historically the image of a wolf-dragon had become common in the part of Europe where I am from starting with 8th century B.C. (before Christ). The image we use has been made especially for us by Alex Nimurad @nimurad and I want to thank him for his patience and professionalism in making sure the image is true to our vision.
Please note that this is not a commercial item, we would like to call it a collector’s item for the following reasons: it has been produced in limited numbers from the best quality yarns – cashmere for blue and navy, and babycashmere for red. The embroidery is large and few artisans can produce it, and also at the quality needed and we have employed an Italian embroider recognized for their work with high fashion maisons.
The illustration is created for us by a very appreciated and talented Romanian illustrator. The knitwear has been made in Romania.
