“Roma Thara” Scarf

The scarf’s story

The design was inspired by eight personal Roma migration stories. The three main colors stand for one’s own past, for the present and for the connection to their own culture. The red lines symbolize the kinship connections that occur between the different Roma families. The red circles represent traditional Roma families, whereas newer generations are pictures trough green circles. As a pattern, the design pictures the Roma society as it is today – colorful with a new image and identity.

Production
The scarf was designed by Iulia Mugescu and produced in Italy at Lake Como.

The Roma story in a nutshell
The Roma are among the first migrants worldwide. Due to decades of discrimination, oppression, and lack of opportunities, the Roma society is today marked by a negative image. Younited Cultures has set itself on the path to break stereotypes and to make the fascinating and extremely complex Roma culture visible.
