A red poncho

Here’s a sneak peak at a prototype poncho in corded red mercerised cotton. It hangs beautifully because there’s a satisying weight to it. It will be a very special garment, for day or evening. A little bit of edging and it will be complete.

What is luxury? I think it’s something made with great care and love, by hand.

Crochet is one of the oldest art forms, and can be traced back to ‘Nålbinding’.  The oldest known textile fragment of Nålbinding dating from c. 6500 BCE was found in Nehal Hemar cave, Israel. Another from the Ertebølle period c. 4200 BCE was found in ‘Tybrind Vig’, a Mesolithic fishing village in Denmark.

One thought on “A red poncho

  1. Your work is beautiful and I know that every stich is done with love as it is a time consuming venture. The scarf is so lovely with muted colors and patterns and the red poncho stich is very impressive. Good luck with your new venture. Happy and healthy New year.
