Salachi Eye Pillow: Reviving the Silk Road
Originating in the depths of the East many years ago, a notional road was established, which would bridge Asia and Europe, connecting significant civilizations on its way. A boundless route that would serve to transfer fine silk and linen fabrics, spices, herbs, paper, gemstones and precious metals. The Silk Road This road would impel in changing and defining the world to what it is today.
People from different civilizations, cultures and religions travelled for months in order to exchange goods, through voyages full of priceless experiences and knowledge. The blending of ideas and mindsets throughout the way was inevitable. In time, the borderlines and culture boundaries started to feint and in this new environment of familiarity, human relations prospered, bonds were created and limitless horizons opened.
This road eventually led people to familiarize with difference and helped them embrace it. One prominent stop in the journey of goods and people, somewhere in the middle of the route: the Middle East, the Arab Levant. An important crossroads of cultures, full of colours, scents, flavours and textures, all blended and ground with the same mortar and pestle.
Let’s stop briefly for a cup of hot tea, a deep inhalation of lavender that will overflow us with the feeling of serenity and let us relax and repose. For a brief moment, we gather, and then we are back on the road, moving onwards with our journey. Each one towards his own destination. His own dream.
Salachi Eye Pillow is inspired by this exact journey. A magical voyage of scents and senses inside a silk bundle. The scent of bio lavender, the beneficial properties of organic flax, along with the unique silky feel on the skin, will provide the ideal conditions for ultimate relaxation.
