Estuaries: Artifacted linen shawl with hand stitching

Regular price $ 78.00 Sale

Artifacting. That's my term for making a new piece of clothing that appears to be old. Here's what I've written about the process.

Raw, rough frayed and 'worn' linen shawl with sashiko-esque hand stitching on the tips and down the back. Hand made by me, one of a kind, and hand dyed in murky, brackish, mottled, muted green-blues.
All the frayed edges are reinforced with stitching. 

particulars:
• actual measurements:  54 inches wide (137 cm) — where it goes around your shoulders, and 33 inches long from collar to tip in back (84 cm)

• fabric: 100% medium weight linen
• care: hand wash in cold water, dry flat.
