Adornment has always had a deep connection with traditional tribal culture - and, if you think about it, today's modern, urban tribes aren't that different. Warpaint... Headdresses... Killer heels. They're all adornments people use to express themselves, but they're also ways to show the world which tribes you belong to.
You might identify with hundreds of different tribes on any given day, or you might have found one group that fits you down to a T - it doesn't matter. What does matter is the sense of belonging we get from our tribal identities. It's a way to channel our own strength and confidence, and it gives us a real feeling of togetherness and empowerment.
All this has got to be part of the reason why the little adornments matter so much. For some people, it can be as simple as a flash of red lipstick to feel ready to face the work day. For others it's throwing on their favourite band T-shirt before a gig. At the other end of the scale, it can even be as meaningful as a bride putting on a treasured family heirloom as her something borrowed.
I want Brave Lotus to be part of these good vibes. I want you to discover pieces that make you feel brave enough to take on anything - safe in the knowledge that your tribe has your back.
Whoever you are, whatever your style... Find your tribe. x
