The Cape of Constant Change

The Cape of Constant Change is a celebration of change. The yarn has undergone a magical transformation having begun its story as threads emerging from the silk worm that transforms into a moth. Butterflies and moths are universal symbols of the magic of metamorphosis.

The silk was then woven to become a sari, which is itself a shape-shifting garment. Saris are made of rectangular cloth draped to flatter the form of the body. When the wearer takes it off, the sari morphs back to its original rectangular shape. The remnants of these saris are cast off in the cutting room. The seemingly worthless shreds that fall to the ground are then spun into a new and splendid yarn that rises in value. Now we take that recycled yarn and convert it into a cape.

“Change alone is eternal, perpetual, immortal.”
