Forget-Me-Not Tote / Armenian Genocide Remembrance
The "Forget-Me-Not" Tote is a limited edition bag handmade to commemorate the 101st anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. The forget-me-not flower was chosen as the symbol of the centennial of the genocide, as it means the same thing in all languages: to remember, to not forget. The official symbol was designed by Sharm.
The tote bag features the hand appliquéd forget-me-not flower, which depicts the 12 stone slabs of the Tsitsernakaberd Genocide Memorial in Yerevan while the five petals represent the five parts of the world where Armenians found shelter after the Genocide creating the vast Armenian Diaspora.
The black color symbolizes the horrors and the memory of the Genocide. The inner radial means that everybody shares the same sorrow. The dominant color of the symbol is purple. It is widely spread among the clothing elements of the Armenian Apostolic Church monks. And the yellow symbolizes sunlight in the form of 12 bowed pillars arranged in a circular form in Tsitsernakaberd Memorial Complex.
Finished off with playful purple pompoms, this bag is handmade and will be available in limited edition this year only.
