You are looking at a Fibre Art Painting better known as a reversible nuno felted vest. I use the term painting because of the process I go through to create these wearable canvases.

I keep a pantry of hand dyed fabrics and merino batts that I purchase right here on Etsy. Their quality, colour and softness are superb.

I use either silk gauze, chiffon or cotton scrim as my canvas. I find that the wools I have laid out to be used often never make it into the design. The design has it's own demands, which I always trust. In this way, each art work becomes an exciting surprise in itself.

My vests being reversible, they demand a yin/yang touch that I use. This gives you 4 different looks. If you turn the vest upside down and put it on, you have a smart and original bolero. Each vest comes with a hand made wooden clip for closure.

Wet hand felted with soap, water and love, the result is a transformative wearable artwork. Totally contemporary, you can wear your vest chic or casual, long or short, and always look fabulous!

This jewelled tone beauty was created on a misty blue and rose silk gauze.
One side is a soft lime with a burgundy collar, very fresh looking.
The opposite side is a colour dream coat, purples, reds, blues, and golds.
So you have four different and extraordinary looks.
A pleasure to wear. Hope you love it!
