Our range of silk bags and cloths are made with great care. The material is handmade and therefore there can be slight variations in the purple.
Made from the highest quality 100% dupion silk. Each bag is double lined. That is to say there is one colour for the outer of the bag and another layer of silk is used to line the inside. This gives a wonderful and unexpected contrast between the two. The silk is strong. One of the characteristics of dupion silk is the seams and textures on the silk's surface which reflect the light at different angles.
Some people prefer to use cloths or bags that are made from silk to hold their cards as they feel, as a natural product, this helps maintain the integrity of their tools better than man made fibres.
These bags have been specifically designed with Tarot and Angel Cards in mind. They are the correct size for all the decks we sell at Holisticshop including Rider Waite, Doreen Virtue Angel Cards, Crowley, Spiral, Morgan-Greer, Osho Zen etc. Overall a product which has wonderful colours and is made to a very high standard.
Please note that as pure natural silk is a "commodity" this can cause fluctuations in price. We try to keep prices as steady as possible, but sometimes we may make adjustments in pricing at short notice.

More About the Symbolism of the Colour Purple
Purple is traditionally a royal colour and sign of dignity. Garments made of purple cloth were typically worn by high priests, emperors, military leaders and magistrates in the Roman times, as well as having a strong association with Osiris, and Ancient Egyptian god.
The colour gained its superior authority as dying cloth purple was an expensive process, involving collecting secretions from two types of molluscs, so only the wealthiest people in society could afford to have clothes made of the colour.
In terms of magic, purple is linked to the spiritual dimension, psychic development, wisdom and spiritual strength. People often use the colour, whether through meditation or visualisation, to try and increase their spiritual development and access higher states. Likewise, in the chakra system, purple / violet relates to the crown chakra.
