In Himalayan tradition, prayer flags are hung outside where the wind and elements carry their wishes across the land. Their decay is evidence that the wishes have been dispersed. These nondenominational flags are dyed with my studio-grown Japanese indigo. The hand drawn, screen printed design is intended to be both decorative and contemplative. 

The details: Each string has 6 raw edge flags that each measure 6" x 8". They are sewn on a length of hemp twine which is 7' long. The printing is done with water-based ink.

If they are hung outside and caressed by the sun, rain and wind, the colors are likely to fade and birds may begin to borrow threads for their nests. As decay is part of the purpose of these flags, the natural dyes and fibers ensure that they are safely biodegradable for the environment.
