NEW! Desert Prayer Flags
These new flags were created using all my new relief print designs from 2020! I chose a color scheme that would complement the original set if you're adding to it, but standing alone it's like jewels in the desert.
Each individual flag is 10 inches long
The length of 8 flags (give or take how they're arranged on the rope) = approx 7 ft (6ft 8 inches if adding up 8 x 10 inches)
::: length measurement not including the rope ends
Flag sets include: An unbleached cotton rope is threaded through the flags with loops tied on the end to hang. These are very lightweight, all it takes indoors is a thumbtack.
The fabric is polyester chiffon, a feather-light textile that is semi-transparent and tough. I left the edges raw to keep the lightness of the flags, but also to naturally fray over time. The inner edges are treated with a clear "fray stopper" so that the fraying doesn't get too out of hand. The flags can be hung indoors or outside- even in rain and sun. The filmy polyester dries out with just a breath of a breeze.
I designed these images using the relief prints I've made of desert plants and animals, and created a border inspired by the hand-painted designs over doorways in Mexico, traditional Western style, paisley bandanas, and added an agave since the plant is so graphic and adds to the desert theme.
Traditional Tibetan prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. Fabric flags carry prayers and mantras, blown by the wind to spread goodwill across the land. My version of this is embracing the love so many people share of the flora and fauna of the West Texas high desert, the love of open spaces, big skies, and road trips that take you on lonely highways. These colorful bandana designs are meant to be strung up to let the wind carry the good vibes of peace, protection, love of life and wild spaces.
