The brainchild of designer Hardy Blechman, Maharishi has produced its award-winning pacifist military designs since 1994. The roots of Maharishi, and offshoot label MHI, lay in Blechman’s former career in the military surplus clothing trade, which inspired Blechman to take the concept of repurposing to a new level.
This crew neck sweater features a hand embroidered SeaDragon motif, inspired by the Helicopter Combat Support Squadrons of the Vietnam war.
One unit named Seawolves, aka Helicopter Attack Squadron (Light) 3 or HAL-(3), featured a wolf yielding a trident; the U.S. Navy adopted the three pronged spear, leaning on ancient symbolism and the weapon of Poseidon, God of the Sea. Classical Western mythology, so often overlaps with Hinduism, who's Lord Shiva is also always depicted with Trishula, Sanskrit for ’triple-spear’. The original Seawolves logo added the Ace of Spades representing Death and the red and yellow colours of the flag of South Vietnam.
