EL OJO is inspired by the ancient spiritual artifact known as Ojo de Dios, typically made by weaving yarn upon a wooden cross. It is a symbol that can be traced across the ancient peoples of the Americas. Many Oaxacan patterns feature the Ojo de Dios in countless geometrical and color variations.
The spiritual eye of the Ojos de Dios is thought to have the power to see and understand things unknown to the physical eye. It is a ritual tool that is still believed to protect those who hold it.
