stowaway: artifacted linen shawl with secret pocket

Regular price $ 158.00 Sale

stowaway. A substantial shawl with raw frayed edges, patches and overstitching - dramatic, moody, gothy-y, delightful. One of the pointy ends has a double layer and underneath is a secret zippered pocket. On the front there's a large loop you can use to close it, or if you wear it open or tie it, it does fine as another decorative element. Hand made. Hand dyed.
(Artifacted? Is that a verb? I'm saying it is. Here's what it means to me.)
 
About this color: I have dyed this garment to a deep saturated shade of Payne's Grey.  In some lighting it looks black, or charcoal gray, but then if you pair it with black you'll see there's more blue to it as well. It's deep Payne's Grey.
particulars:
• rough size: one size fits most - this is quite long and substantial - if you're petite it could be a challenge to have it fit gracefully - check the length please!
