The Large Grey Stole
When we receive hand made products, we cross our fingers and hope that there will be somewhere, an irregularity. Why? You ask, well because mishaps reveal the unmistakable touch of a human hand rather than the cold precision of a machine that never fails, that's why! We adore the bubble in the glass vase, the extra bead on the evening purse, the tiny smear on a printed silk, you get the idea. The Wabi-Sabi, the imperfection, the weakness, the crack is what makes anything endearing and unique. We found it on this divine wool shawl, after a careful search. A small patch of light grey... yes! there it is, slightly encroaching on the darker grey like a small act of rebellion. This imperfection is what makes this stole so perfect. Yes, absolutely handmade and therefore one of a kind.
