"Our breath plays a very important role in our life. The breathis the connecting link between the inner world of the mind and the outer world of the body and environment." - Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

This project is meant to bring a shift in that connection between the inner and outer. Its meant to bring in a new era of HOPE, by utilizing the resources of the people and the environment, to create a new beginning: a new Bangladesh.

Breathing is the first act of life, and is also the last act of life. Breathing creates an expansive state; it allows the heart to expand and things in nature to co-exist in peace
and harmony; it allows people awareness of their common humanity: everyone of us breathes and breathes the same air! In this mutual understanding, we can find the way to coexist in harmony. By bringing the global community together to create this change, by
inviting all of us to work together for a new beginning, we embody these values reflected in our breath.

This check inspires everyone to be in that expansive state of mind, to breathe, to move forward from a place of strength and fullness. This fabric is alive and breathing…expansive, relaxed, happy. We can create peace and expansion through art, design, textiles and make a better life for ourselves and others.

"Nothing is more precious than peace. Nothing brings more happiness. Peace is the most basic starting point for the advancement of humankind." -Daisaku Ikeda

To revive, to be fully endowed, to open…
