This Silk Scarf is inspired by the book “‘The sweetness of life’ by Françoise Héritier. How often do we feel truly alive? We spend one-third of our lives asleep. As adults, most of our waking time is devoted to activities where we are concentrating on a task to be achieved. We can spend hours, days, or even weeks without pausing in our busyness to appreciate the vivid experience of being a living, thinking, feeling animal.

The French anthropologist Françoise Héritier lists some of the “little things” we shouldn’t forget to do and enjoy. Hereby, some of the designer’s favorite items on Héritier’s list:

Smiling at someone who’s not expecting it

Feeling your taste buds react to ginger

Coming to terms with what you hate

Touching sensitive plants

Making a ladybird walk on your finger

Regretting that I don’t look good in a hat

Sometimes remaining naive and not minding

Feeling carried away by a heavy, rhythmic swell at sea and forgetting that everything is finite

Rebelling against stupidity at the right moment

Liking the look of windmills

Planting a big kiss on the nose of a cat who took offense

Feeling sudden outbursts of joy as you might feel fits of heat

MANTILITY strongly believes in the strength and potential of anonymous artists. This collection includes unique artworks from designers who wish to remain anonymous, essentially freeing the buyer from the bias of artists’ recognition and defining their work value on individual subjective appreciation.
Some artists will be revealed after the scarf has been purchased (in the concept card inside the scarf box) while others will not.
