I’m so stoked to finally have some pics of my freshly finished patched punx jacket! It’s a tribute to the swazi and finding a way to stylize it in a fresh way that energizes it’s long held positive meanings. It includes 3D Printed swastika designs – 2 on the front and 1 inside the center back patch. The inside lining and sleeve trim is from a Japanese kimono that I found on swazi scavenger hunt in San Francisco’s Chinatown district. The pattern is called Sayagata and is one of the most popular swazi patterns you’ll see allover the place when you look for them. There is a flower of life chest detail and patch as well as some crop circle patches.
The back is actually a sauwastika which is a left facing swastika. It is the most common one used in Buddhism. The left facing sauwastika is found on the chest, feet and palms of the Buddha and is actually the first of the 65 auspicious symbols on Buddha’s footprints. In Hinduism the left-facing one is associated with esoteric tantric practices and stands for the Goddess Kali. Wearing this feels like wearing an epic bass drop on my favorite funky tune!
Love and light,
