Nazar is the result of research into the age old symbolism of wizardry, kundalini and Vipassana meditation.

Through experimentation with brainwave sensing technology it is clear that meditation is capable of affecting the electromagnetic waves reverberating from our brain. The effect goes largely unnoticed in society since brainwaves remain invisible to the human eye, yet this garment attempts to show wat is normally hidden, while at the same time referring to a deeply symbolic spiritual aesthetic.
