Red is its own language… It hangs off the edges of Yemeni (scarfs) each tiny symbol telling you something of the mood of its owner. To sport a red pepper means keep a wide birth I am having a bad day. The cactus flower is the symbol for christmas. The watermelon flower (the hardest to knot) remains a mystery.The Yemeni themselves rest in piles some old some new. Often the edge is unfinished or there is a strange anomaly in the colour of the thread. This signature is reminder that no one and nothing is perfect. To be human is to be flawed…
