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 our society since brainwaves remain invisible to the human eye. This garment attempts to help show wat is normally hidden, while at the same time referring to a symbolic and deeply spiritual aesthetic.
