Description

Handwoven Fabric, Love, Raw Silk, Natural Dye, Black Walnut, African Cowrie Shell, antique bone beads, hand spun mulberry silk, organic cotton bamboo
Leaves blowing in a warm summer breeze.

A one of a kind piece of wearable art.
Raw silk, both natural white and lightly dyed with black walnuts fall around you like soft flower petals. Cascading down the front and around the side are raw silk leaves in gentle shades of cream and tan, dyed with black walnuts.
The waistband was handwoven with hand-spun mulberry silk, raw silk and organic cotton-bamboo. From it’s edge flow hand twined fringe adorned with African Cowrie shells and antique bone beads.

Cowrie shells are a powerful symbol of the Goddess, prosperity, bounty and fertility.

Because it is a wrap skirt it will fit a wide range of sizes up to a 34 inch waist measurement. The length measures 46 inches. Please convo me if you have any questions about fitting, I will happily hem it for you if it is too long. The shirt and veil pictured are not included.

Made from start to finish by me in my New Mexico home-studio.
Thanks for checking out my work!
Made with LOVE!!!
