For Sale: A Galaxy Of Sapphire Pools


The third and last piece from Teresa Moorhouse's very soothing-to-look-at Matkalla Maalle for Marimekko.

They don't print this in blue anymore and I have none of it left after making this piece so grab it while you can!

The print is meant to depict the point-of-view of a passenger in a moving car. Maybe along a coastal drive?

But I see swimming pools instead of the open sea when I cut the fabric up into round "gems". Haha.

I know quite a few people who love wearing The Empress Dowager's New Jewels with the ruched side showing...this whole Teresa Moorhouse series of three pieces is for you then!

The print works really well on both sides.

Product Information:
~ All pieces are 100% handstitched with love.
~ Each piece is a one-off -> no two pieces of The Empress Dowager's New Jewels are the same
~ The smallest "gem" measures 1.5cm in diameter, the next one up is 2.5cm, followed by 4.5cm and 6cm for the largest
~ From the first "gem" on the left to the last one on the right: 40.5cm
~ Length of ribbon-tie: 40.5cm on each side (to allow for the wearing of your "jewels" at various lengths

~ AU$65.00 (for currency converter, click here) - cheap for a one-of-a-kind handmade piece compared to those mass-produced chainstore trinkets!
