It’s a Wrap

smuk

Check out my new smuk! It’s a scarf/skirt/picknick blanket in one, made by my dear friend Femke who collects different fabric from all over the world to make this awesome fashion-invention. My smuk is from Myanmar and I’m planning to buy another lovely one from Bhutan, Femke brought some great patterns back from her travels in developing areas to fashionable Hong Kong:

“In few truly remote places around the world, people, mostly female, still hold on to traditional clothing. With their beautiful colours, prints and dress codes they represent minorities, nations or only a small village. Whilst we might not want to wear the whole outfit, hints of it can brighten up a simple shirt or jacket.”

Isn’t it just great, how this creative project can give cultural heritage a whole new platform?! Get yourself a smuk at www.smukshop.com
