The scarf’s story
The design was inspired by eight personal Rroma 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 Rroma families, whereas newer generations are pictures trough green circles. As a pattern, the design pictures the Rroma society as it is today – colorful with a new image and identity.
The scarf was designed by Founder Iulia Mugescu and printed on silk in Italy, at Lake Como.
The Rroma story in a nutshell
The Rroma are among the first migrants worldwide. Due to decades of discrimination, oppression, and lack of opportunities, the Rroma 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 Rroma culture visible.
