Inspiration Behind the Snakeskin Shibori Cycling Kit
Everything we do, we do with SOUL. Our Snakeskin Shibori kit is no exception. We believe that intention should be put into all we do. Our kit comes from one vision brought to life by an amalgamation of 3 different designers work.
It all started years ago with the obsession with snakes and snakeskin. The snake animal meaning is powerfully connected to life force and primal energy. In many cultures, it is revered as a powerful totem representing the source of life. When the snake spirit animal appears in your life, it likely means that healing opportunities, change, important transitions, and increased energy are manifesting. Harnessing the primal energy of the snake was important to us. As athletes we rely on this energy to perform.
Shibori, the centuries old Japanese technique of dying cloth with spontaneity, mystery, and serendipitous effects continue to inspire new generations of artists and designers all over the world. Shibori inspired us. Not only the time staking and magical results but also the very specific dye used, Indigo. Electric Indigo is used to symbolically represent the 6th chakra which is said to include the third eye. This color has also been used to represent "Love-wisdom" and holds a place in the rainbow spectrum as one of the seven prismatic colors. Although our kit does not use these traditional techniques to create the outcome, we were inspired by the process and colors used. The collection of power and meaning is infused deeply within this piece.
With the help of designers Hunter King, Adrian Encalada, and Cuores Hannah Hazel, S▼S▼A's vision was able to come to life. We feel the power in this kit when we ride, it draws on natural elements that bring strength, insight, and wisdom. Combined with Cuores light weight and supple fabric, impeccable design, and integral business practices we are happy to say we have collaborated with only the best intentions to share this with all of you.
