XL Wabi Sabi Duster Poncho II
I reinforced the shoulders with a shibori yoke on this piece. I was thinking it would be on the inside but it's so cute you could wear it either way. Ponchos are the perfect addition to every textile lover's collection. Wear it as a poncho or shawl when you're out and toss it on your couch as a decorative throw when you're home.
Made with a vintage textile from Burkina Faso, West Africa. This beautiful fabric was handwoven in small strips that were then sewn together to create a sarong like cloth before being dyed. The whole process took weeks, even longer when you consider that they often grew the cotton and indigo! Imperfections, distress patterns, small holes or stains are common features of this beautiful and storied fabric.
