Floral Fantasy Wrap is the latest in the range of pashmina shawls worked with luxurious Swarovski crystals and pearls, gilt metal threads and New Zealand Possum fur. It features a range of techniques used in French couture and has a mirrored design on one end only.
It is available in the gold colourway pictured, in royal blue and dark red. These kits are packed to order – orders for them are usually processed within a week.
For anyone concerned at my use of fur in this piece – possums are an introduced pest in New Zealand and are destroying their beautiful forests. Their department of Conservation is trying to eradicate these pests and in the process a fur industry has emerged that the New Zealanders have embraced – not only producing fur garments and fur trimmed garments, but also blending fur into knitting yarns to make a super soft and super warm yarn. I am using certified pelts – these are not Australian possums which are protected.
