Shredded Wings - Handspun Freeform Art Wrap
NEAUVEAU HEART ON MY SLEEVE COLLECTION
FREE SIZE size (fits XS-XXXL) upcycled woven wrap with freeform crochet handspun and novelty yarn embellishments. Sparkle threaded blue yarn epaulette wings of draped fringe. Scarf is woven and indigo dyed. Embellished with recycled sari silk ribbons.
Repurposing materials is important to me as a conscientious textile artist. I thrifted these new/like new pieces and sculpted the wrap by hand. I enjoy transforming "fast fashion" into "couch couture" - comfortable delightful garments that can be worn over pajamas or to the fiber art festival.
Where to wear something like this?
- Sheep and wool festivals
- Children's museums
- Around the house
- To the beach
- To the park
- To work
- To the zoo
- To live music events
- To a botanical garden
- Wherever you want to take some cute selfies
- Whenever you need a seretonin hit!
How to wash:
Always wear a shirt under art garments to keep them fresh. Spot clean if necessary. Do not put in the washing machine or dryer. If necessary, soak in warm water with a gentle detergent and lay flat to dry. Dry cleaning is okay.
About the collection:
This collection was inspired by two concepts: clothing inclusivity and pandemic wear. I wanted pieces that were "free size" so they could be worn by as many body types as possible (or still fit as your body changes thru different chapters in life), and easy to throw over pajamas to look put together for a zoom meeting or when working from home.
I enjoyed making this piece and am looking forward to sending it to whomever it belongs to!
Thank you for supporting my art.
