Victims of the contagious disease are often dying in isolation, without their families and friends by their side. And across the world, many of the bereaved are being robbed of the chance of a final goodbye and the comfort of a funeral.
Thus, to honour the memory of the victims of COVID‑19, we have produced ‘The Remembering’ scarf to commemorate thousands of coronavirus victims as well as to pay tribute to everyone who has died of COVID-19 in Malaysia, and every Malaysian from all walks of life who has died of the disease abroad.
Through this collection, it gives the victims’ families and friends a chance to take some time and pay tribute to the victims of COVID‑19. It is also an opportunity to acknowledge the invaluable contribution of all the professional groups and members of civil society who are on the front lines fighting COVID‑19.
Hence, this scarf is inspired from the COVID-19 global pandemic itself. Featuring Iris, we chose this type of flower because it is a holy flower of Islam as some of its petals point upwards towards Allah, while others drop down towards the earth. Also in Islam, Iris flowers are placed on the graves of loved ones to show honor, devotion, and remembrance. Iris flower other meanings include nobility, chivalry, wisdom, messages, faith, and purity.
This beautiful arrangement creates an elegant yet timeless design that transcends time. It is a simple and effortless way to build style and sophistication into your wardrobe. The scarf can be worn in a variety of ways. Lightweight and carefree, this scarf will be wrapped and delivered in a special reusable matching prints handmade cloth pouch.
