Mica Mineral Tarot Cloth
Ever since we started work on our tarots we have wanted to create a tarot cloth to accompany them. We loved the idea of creating a sacred space that was both a canvas and a portal for the meditative mind – a space cleared for introspection and focus that would enhance the content of the cards themselves. Long inspired by the Indian minimalist, tantric paintings of the early 20th century that created exactly this space in the mind's eye we chose to follow this path for our design direction.
Our tarot cloth has been hand-pulled at the studio using water-based paints that we hand-mix with the powerful mineral Mica added to them. Minerals have long been used by artists and healers for their natural earth tones and just as importantly, for their spiritual properties.
Mica: Mica, (also known as Isenglass or Glimmer), is a mineral that has reflective qualities said to enhance our understanding of ourselves allowing us to learn how to accept our flaws with kindness and work on destructive personality traits. It enhances intuition and deepens the mystic experience. Mica shields against jealousy, anger and violence. Physically, Mica is used with insomnia. It benefits the digestive system and keeps blood sugar levels steady. It improves concentration & memory; improves stamina and strength.
Our tarot cloths are created in small, hand-pulled editions making each cloth and edition unique.
