Tribal symbolisms meaning change from culture to culture and between designs. Many of them tell the story of the wearer's heritage, as well as achievements. 

In ancient times tribal symbols were used as symbolic tattoos on the bodies. The first samples date back to more than 5,000 years. 


For thousands of years, many cultures adorned their bodies with permanent symbols as a method of curing disease, providing protection, blessings, showing loyalty to their tribe, and denoting social status. These symbols were also used to demonstrate specific personality traits among ancient peoples.



In these symmetrical patterns, we are inspired by the connection ancient people had with these ritual practices, embracing these looks as a piece of identification, self-expression, power and spiritual protection.

During those times, these symbols worked to tell a story of who they were...

...and that's what we do now, 



"Symmetrical patterns are a design or pattern that is identical on both halves when folded and they can have multiple lines of symmetry.

A line of symmetry can be vertical, diagonal or horizontal. It is also called the mirror line or axis of symmetry"
