The skeleton of an enchanted closet 🌙
May the spine of the butterfly carry your finest threads with grace and purpose.
As an independent fashion designer for my small brand, I enjoy taking a break from working with the flexible woven linen to put my hands to work on something solid. To take a break from the complexities of garment sizing and natural dye recipes in order to work on a more predictable structure.
As my wooden hangers hold gowns, capes, coats, and uniforms, they become the spine and shoulders to the garment when it is away from the human body.
I find these hand-carved clothes hangers help tell the story of the unique clothing I hang from them.
Each is hand-carved from poplar wood and finely sanded for a soft buttery feel that highlights the natural wood grain. I created 3 different wood-burned designs that I felt captured the natural energies of plants and animals residing in the dark wooded areas of the earth.
You could use them as an unconventional keepsake to remember the magic of your special event, or as a form of handcrafted quirkiness to accompany your finest threads that you'd like to put on display.
