Enchanted Forest

Magical deer have stirred human imaginations for centuries. According to Norse mythological tapestries and manuscripts, the stags are shown to be nibbling on the leaves of Yggdrasil, the “World Tree” whose crown houses our earthly realm. To the rugged Vikings, it was deer who seemed worthy of carrying our entire cosmic circus on their backs, symbolizing strength, agility, and grace in movement.




A myriad of white does and stags have roamed from tapestry to tapestry, manuscript to manuscript throughout the centuries since. Funnily enough, it often seems that medieval artists never actually saw deer (or many other wild animals) in the flesh; this is evident as their artistic depictions rarely look like the animal they were trying to represent.



This continued symbolism of deer in artwork and media throughout history extends to the Patronuses of the Harry Potter family in J.K. Rowling's books. And if you're not much of a reader, a deer gazes at your from a bottle of Jägermeister in any bar—a source of inspiration for yet another journey into the wild forest of bars and city streets, perhaps?



This is a handmade lingerie set, with all beads sewn-on by hand. As with all our more luxurious lingerie, we recommend handwashing on cold with a gentle detergent, and lying flat or hanging to dry.
