A dark shadow, merging in a disarray of rousing thoughts concealed by the grace of Jester in his extravagant shoes with bows and coated by a fanciful silk collar. Wearing this lively piece of art is bold – be prepared for being in the spotlight. Embracing the thrill of vivacious design, we have laid Jester in a sumptuous canvas, a shawl made of the finest cashmere, responsibly sourced and hand crafted from silk and cashmere in Nepal. So soft is the canvas, Jester is torn between states of conscious and unconscious, a paralysis, without the need to separate reality and dreams. Jester was first born in oil on canvas in 2012, a figment of Jill Tegan Doherty’s imagination, and painstakingly recreated nearly a decade later with needle and thread. Each piece embroidered over the course of 550 hours by India’s most talented Karigars. We are celebrating Jester’s eccentricity with hand embroidered limited edition shawls. Each piece of art is accompanied by an authentically signed silk booklet, wrapped in an organic linen garment bag and boxed in a luxurious, eco-friendly paper box, honoring art, artisanship and timelessness at By Told.
