LEGENDARY TALES OR HISTORIC FEATS ARE OFTEN SHARED. BUT WHAT OF YOUR STORY? YOUR OWN BATTLES AND TRIUMPHS SPEAK OF YOUR UNDENIABLE SPIRIT, YET HOW OFTEN DO YOU CELEBRATE THEM?
Our paths may be different but our shared stories connect and empower us. We are drops in the same ocean, each singular and individual. But always lending towards a higher greatness.
I am Meher, designer and founder of Celestree. It is my innate desire to elevate those moments we all have on our journeys, when our light shone the brightest. Why? Because it is integral to connect with yourself. To remember how far you have already come, and to realise the inner strength that will take you onwards.
Uplifting spirits, with thought-provoking and emotive design, lies at the heart of Celestree. It’s not about creating just another pretty scarf. But rather something of substance that conveys precise messages.
Those messages communicate the wonders of the female essence. Fortitude, empathy, gratitude and endless love.
Each of my designs illustrate specific tales and come from within. Driven by an inner compulsion they draw on familiar elements of our world, to reconnect you with an essential sense of being – your truth.
And so, I humbly hope you find joy in these creations. Reasons to give you pause, to recollect your own experiences and revel in them. With each step along your path, you have unfurled your spirit. That alone makes your story one worth sharing.
As a single father, my greatest wish for my daughter is that she grows up an empowered woman. Someone who embraces her strength and uses it to fulfil her biggest dreams. Someone who loves and cares for herself and others, while also living her life's purpose.
Women have had an invaluable and influential presence in my life. My ‘Amma’ (mother), Vijaya Laxmi, opened my eyes to our intricate world, with her gift of storytelling. She lay the foundation for my spiritual growth; while my deep-thinking sister, Latha, inspires me to nourish both my mind and soul.
But it is my wife, Ruby, who showed me the extraordinary depths of a woman's heart. Compassion without weakness, love without fear and strength that can withstand a storm.
When she passed away, shortly after our daughter Roshini's birth, my world fell apart. Instinctively, Amma stepped into the vacant maternal role for my newborn. In doing so, she allowed me to find my way out of the tempestuous darkness, by listening to that guiding voice inside us all.
The entire experience left me with a serene sense of gratitude and purpose. I felt the innate need to help tell the stories of transformative women like Ruby and Amma, in the hope that it would inspire others.
I know I will never be able to fathom all that it takes to be a woman. But it is my humble desire to celebrate them.
My designs depict the wonderful qualities I have seen, and reflects the strengths I have witnessed. It is my hope that they are a gentle reminder of your own light. The same hope I have for my precious Roshini.
Feel empowered. Ignore the self-doubt. Everything you need is inside you. Connect with your inner self. Your spirit, your truth. That innate sense of self that grounds you but also ennobles you. In it you find peace and solace. And as you nurture it, you find purpose.
Remember those purpose-filled moments of your story thus far. All you have achieved. Big, small or in between; each one is a step in your own magical journey.
Celebrate them. Celebrate you. With Celestree.
