Maiwa purchase

This purchase was definitely too much and crazy impulsive. I obviously couldn’t resist. Ten articles of clothing, most linen, a few silk and cotton. Super roomy and comfortable. Perfect for dyeing and embellishment. And accompanied by an online class by India Flint on her A School of Nomad Arts platform.

    This is absolutely gorgeous in every way! Trust me, you are not alone in the absolute JOY these garments are! Not a luxury in my view, but as necessary as food and water!

I love these photos! I hope to see what you do in India’s marvelous garment class! Blessings to you.
