The names of Wearable Darkness and its sister shop, Wearable Lightness, are twists on the book title, “The Unbearable Lightness of Being.” This book explores what it means to be light or heavy in one’s life philosophy. Are you one or the other? Or a bit of both? It doesn’t matter because both these shops have beautiful items to decorate your wardrobe.
As a belly dancer, I mostly make items suitable to the unique needs of belly dancers. However, many of the items also have alternative uses.
Many of my items are designed such that very little fabric is wasted. Items often use fabric ties instead of other fasteners in order to best utilize all fabric. Some items are made from expensive designer decorator fabrics that otherwise would end up in landfills. Using these upcycled fabrics lets me create one-of-a-kind items.
