Balance as a shawlette draws on the idea of duality and perceived imbalance, whilst showing that all our varied differences make completeness and balance. With it we’re celebrating and fighting for queer joy. Using sets of eyelets to symbolise difference, and copying them on each side as if in a flip of a coin, or a look in the mirror, these disparate parts make a whole.
This Shawlette is design as part of Crafting Queer Future, every sale for the month of July 2023 will go to the Crafting Queer Future Crowdfunder stated organisations. With 40% of the purchase price going forward after July 2023 being committed to direct mutual aid.
