A Woven Tale…..
The tradition of cloth weaving in dates back to the kingdoms that flourished between 300 A.D. and 1600 A.D. Legend has it that the first weaver learned the art by observing a spider making a web.
Like most tribal visual art forms, woven cloth represents a community’s history, philosophy and values. It is a form of social identity, with each tribe having its own unique patterns. The colors in the patterns are believed to be symbolic, with yellow symbolizing vitality , pink for charm, red for consciousness, blue for harmony, green for rejuvenation, purple for healing, grey for balance, gold for prestige and black for potency.
Aebe is inspired by this ancient craft and blends the symbolism and eclectic color palette of indigenous weavers with timeless silhouettes to create distinctive style.
