Art You Can Wear: Circle Vest Video

We are so pleased to welcome award-winning felt wear designer Patti Barker to MaJe Gallery, bringing you her art you can wear. Using the “nuno felting” technique,  all of Patti’s designs are produced with felted seams (no sewing). The fabric and the garment are created simultaneously, using wet felting techniques. What makes them unique is her hand-dying of elements used. She also hand-spins her embellishing art yarns and totally enjoys the playfulness they bring to the process.

Art You Can Wear

One of Patti’s most popular designs is the circle vest. We have two in stock right now. You can wear it four ways. Check it out…

Stop by to see our seafoam green vest, and our sepia vest. Have Patti make one for you in your favorite color! They are about $240.

Here’s one of Patti’s dresses, worn by Manya over an olive top and sage green tights.

This tunic is smaller, and can fit sizes 4 – 8. It’s worn here over a 3/4 sleeve T-shirt in wine, and black leggings. It’s so interesting and unique! I’ve got it in the window now, and so many people are coming in to get a closer look. One-of-a-kind. $210.

Outfit Of The Week

Art you can wear looks like this skirt, top and jacket
Turquoise and Black skirt, top and bolero

Art you can wear might look like this fun outfit. We started with a new skirt from Marcia Bloom – a one-of-a-kind beauty featuring some sparkles in turquoise, gray and black. We found a perfect T-shirt to bring out the blue in the skirt. Put a black Testimony bolero over it all, and voila! You are ready for anything!

The skirt fits sizes 6 – 14. The blue tee is a shirred V-neck with half sleeves. Available in sizes S,L,XL,XXL. Bolero available in sizes S,M,L,XL.

Resolve to bring more beauty into the world this year in what you wear! It’s not only fun, it also makes people smile.

A couple new tops from Florida’s Inside Out also just recently arrived. You may have seen these before, but only if you had good timing. They sold out really fast!  Don’t miss your chance to get them this time.  Made of super comfortable modal fabric, they are machine washable, and great for travel as well as everyday style.

On the left is the black and white striped “Cindy” top, with just a bit of red accenting the design. This one is flying out the door.  In fact, I’m updating this on 7/29, and all the Cindy tops are gone!  There are still three Roma tops however, in that fabulous shade of green called “pear.”

Perfect with your Amma Design top - a rivoli Swarovski ring!
