“The Lion and Sun Flag Brooch”
At Kiani Concept we are often asked what inspires us to design and create the accessories we share with the world. Our answer is always the same; the single thing that defines us, binds us all together and gives us pride and belonging, Our Heritage. For some it might be food, music or a famous place, yet for us it is all those things and so much more, it is the land of the Lion and the Sun. So, when we sat down to decide on our next piece, we quickly realised; what better to craft than a brooch of such exquisite detail, Swarovski Crystals, sumptuous gold, emblazoned with the motif that to us means home, The Lion and Sun Brooch.
Creating such a thing comes with an immense sense of responsibility though, as few iconic things in Iranian life mean so much to so many people. We could have used a whole range of materials to create the brooch, with the flag of our beloved homeland on which the Lion and Sun rest. However we needed something special, something that would take time, skill and craftsmanship… something that few others would even dream of attempting.
