RAMOMAR NY uses art, fashion, culture, and history to reintroduce luxurious textiles and patterns revered in ancient times with a modern context; while acknowledging their sacred function and meanings for a new generation.
The word 'Luxury' started as a tribute to the 'gods' i.e. universal forces of nature & the cosmos. Temples built for the deities were embellished with gold, lapis lazuli, precious minerals and materials of all kinds.
Therefore, when one invests in luxurious items, like those that were tributes to the divine, you are investing in something sacred. A sacrifice in turn, makes something sacred. The higher the investment, or sacrifice, the more sacred that acquired object becomes.
It is said, those who were in the presence of those sacred places would in turn be granted favors from the creator for their service. The kings, queens, priest and priestesses had to live by a strict moral code of conduct to be granted access to these sacred places. They followed a strict regimen of diet, dress, speech and strength to signify the luxury granted to them by serving a higher power.
These dress patterns and luxurious textiles were used to express this special position bestowed on these individuals, and are the foundation of the RAMOMAR NY brand.
