Caravans conjure up images of fascinating far away lands, they allowed for commerce to thrive whilst bringing products from remote places.
In historical times, caravans connecting East Asia and Europe often carried luxurious and lucrative goods, such as silks, spices, teas, or jewelry. Many rulers, kings, and sultans along important trade routes constructed caravanserai, places where caravans could refresh their animals and supplies could be replenished. The luxurious goods brought by caravans were a boon to the local economy and they provided, those who could afford the prices, exotic items from far away.
Defense was also major consideration in caravans. The traders and merchants in the caravan felt more comfortable knowing others in the group “had their back”; in a sense power in numbers. As you can imagine, a slow moving train of incredible goods was a tempting offering for bandits.
BuDhaGirl is inspired by the exotic lands where caravans traveled and with the diverse offerings they carried. We love the imagery of spice markets, and patterned silks. Adornment such as tassels and beads from far away add to the luxurious layering of styles and cultures.
