BOUQUET - Handspun Freeform Art Wrap
NEAUVEAU BLOOM COLLECTION
FREE SIZE (fits XS-XXXL) upcycled cotton wrap with multiple freeform crochet embellishments, handwoven rigid heddle scarf with art yarn from famous spinners around the world, drizzled in sequin handspun art yarn and a GIRL WITH A HOOK headband with felted bits. A celebration of worldwide talent in the art yarn industry including JAZZTURTLE and RURUMORI. Hooded with freeform cotton crochet hood. Deliciously fringed and ready to make a statement at every sheep and wool festival.
No other wrap like this in the entire world!
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.
