Artisans in the Philippines dry the leaves for months, then carefully rub them until they are skeletons, then dye them. They pick the best shaped leaves for the lamps. The frame of the gecko is wrought iron wrapped in natural abaca twine.

Hang these short length paper prayer flags anywhere. It is believed that the ‘Windhorse’ or ‘Lung-ta’, featured in this set, gallops through the heavens carrying this goodwill for the benefit of all beings. Made with sustainably harvested Himalayan lokta paper, a tree free eco paper fiber that grows in the higher hill areas of Nepal using 2,000-year-old techniques.
Prayer Flags are used to promote peace, compassion and wisdom. The wind blows the prayers though the universe and rains carry the prayers away to the earth.
The five colors of the flags represent the harmony of five elements in balance; blue=sky and space, white=air and wind, red=fire, green=water and yellow=earth.
Size: 2.5"sq flag x 13"l string
