First-day cover «Flower of Life»
Picture 1 of 1
It’s said to have positive energy: the Flower of Life is considered a universal symbol of power. It adorns items such as jewellery, water bottles and yoga mats – and now, as a lasercut stamp, it’s also bringing good vibes to letter boxes. Taking the time for yourself, organizing your thoughts and putting them down word by word on paper – there’s something meditative about writing letters. A personally written and appreciative message makes people happy – not only the reader, but the writer, too. This form of mindful communication can be elevated by this new stamp, whose design, the flower of life, signifies harmony. The ornament is known to many cultures around the world, in some cases even going back thousands of years. It’s generally used to balance out energies, and in Switzerland, it’s also depicted on various everyday objects such as home accessories: if not for spiritual reasons, then frequently on account of its decorative nature. In addition to the Flower of Life, the stamp features a further adornment that, just like the circular arrangement of the design, suggests the idea of infinity. The laser cutting gives a flourish to the aesthetic of the geometric pattern: when affixed, the envelope material fills the cut-out elements, fusing stamp and paper into a harmonious work of art.
