Buy-It-Now: Urbanknit's Batik Shawl

Not long ago, we spent quality time with our 102-year-old grandmother (let's call her Grandma Liquorice!) as she gave us a practical lesson (yes, we had indigo-stained hands for days) on the art of tie-and-dye. Naturally, we took an immediate liking to this Urbanknit piece, not least because of its unique batik print. The irregularity of the pattern shows it was painstakingly done by hand by a skilled artisan, making it one-of-a-kind. A beautiful, wearable piece of art as seasons change and temperatures drop and a worthy investment.
