"Sanctum" is all about the place of serenity and peace, a single point where one can find more comfort and solitude than anywhere else. Isn't it what we all refer to as "Heaven"? (just a thought) At times this peace can be found in the most unexpected places. Asylum once became a refuge for me, a place of spiritual recovery and discovery that brought light into my life.I spent 3 month of my life there and it became one of the most enlightening experiences one can ever imagine.
My "Sanctum" Collection includes several pieces with extraordinarily rare plumes of bird of paradise. The bird that I am not sure exists any more. I have been lucky to come upon several vintage stocks (form France, Argentina, Salvador and Norway) of this feathers and working with them became an adventure of it's own. "Asylum" hat is an expression of what I view as an ultimate Sanctum. I have found mine, did you find yours?
I am wishing everyone beautiful weekend. This weekend I feel blessed and loved: after surviving the fury of Hurricane Sandy I am surrounded by pure Love of my close friends and family.
