Camouflage is the New Neutral

Camouflage is the perfect neutral and so versatile. And wearing it now is so apropos to symbolically fight against Covid 19, our invisible enemy.  

I created this dress and matching shawl with hand dyed merino roving, both dyed and hand painted silk and other textiles like mesh and jute. African trade beads line the neckline hanging from repurposed torn tee shirts.  

I have styled the dress with polka dot leggings and top by AMB Designs, boots by Walk, my hand made earrings, vintage bakelite bracelets and a felted camo cuff on my right wrist.

Camo purse with flap, inside pocket, and twisted leather strap. A few beads are almost hidden on the front flap.

The shawl as a skirt with the short poncho on top.

Hand dyed roving along with commercial roving on black 3 mm habotai.  

Wearing the shawl as a skirt along with a camouflage poncho.

Like a camo cocoon!


  1. Do you do internet workshops?

    1. I have not yet done any on-line workshops except for one which was a one-on-one. LMK if you might be interested in something like that.
