In nature, red is the color of life, that of poppies, of fire, of chili, berries and watermelons.
Transposed into culture, it is the color of spirituality, dominant in monasteries, in monk’s garb, of prayer flags, wall paintings and pillar ornaments. We love red at Norlha, with its spirit of openness, of warmth, of drama and spirituality. In summer it flutters with the prayer flags, in winter it fills us with balminess.
As part of our project to have Norlha interpreted by photographers worldwide, we can see our red accordion scarf through the eye of photographer Surzhana Radnaeva, shot in Norway.
