the greater whole
When we bring two seemingly opposing elements together we can remember wholeness. At the core of difference is a unity where each defines the other.
The concept of spanda - a Sanskrit philosophical word derived from, spadi, meaning “to move a little” is used to describe the universe in constant pulsation. Constantly moving between two aspects of the whole, rather than being in direct opposition, polarity or duality.
This expression of contrast, compliment and wholeness is central to Fool Dost; we create pieces that subtly embody those contrasts. Delicately but boldly balancing the South Asian and Western aesthetic sensibilities to make pieces that allow our wearers to express their own entity of wholeness. This philosophy is woven into our design, our relationships, our process and our outlook.
