orbit eccentricity jacket

Regular price $ 298.00 Sale

When planets spin in an elliptical orbit, their off-centeredness is measured in eccentricities. Isn't that just exquisite? Whose life orbit is perfectly circular? That sounds boring. I think we should also measure our oblong successes in eccentricities.

The orbit eccentricity jacket: It's an architectural and organic mix of spinning circles of mass. See the close-up picture to understand how it is constructed of many, many seams. Orbiting life the only way we know how, in elliptical laps; expansive but self-contained, rarely symmetrical.


• rough size: When you're in it, the side with the larger hole is pretty much a full sleeve. The other side ends up at elbow length. Pretty much free sized; Small through 3X. I'm in the 2X/3X range and it fits me
• actual measurements: length is 46 at the longest point, and 28 at the tip of the slit in the back

• fabric: 100% linen, medium weight
• care: machine wash on gentle, cold, machine dry or dry flat
hand made by me in my studio — one of a kind
