Parasisal headdress from the "Lale" Collection. Silk tulip. The entire piece is dyed and molded by hand.
Legend has it that the young prince Farhad was madly in love with Shirin, one of his maids.
When the false news of the murder of his beloved reached his ears, he mounted his enormous steed, and galloping towards the highest cliff in the kingdom, he launched himself into the void. As his drops of blood watered the ground, the tulips sprouted as a symbol of his love for the maiden and the sacrifice made.
Since then, it has been said that in ancient Persia the blood-red tulip is the quintessential symbol of love and passion.
