This piece was named after Sibudu Cave in South Africa, an important archeological site occupied from 77,000 to 38,000 years ago. A 61,000 year old needle was discovered at this site, the earliest known needle yet discovered!

The Unknown Hands Collection pays homage to ancient hand tools used in the textile production process, from spinning thread to weaving cloth to sewing. By drawing inspiration from these forms, I hope to contribute to the elevation and celebration of textile crafts which have historically been performed by anonymous women, and honor the centuries of labor and ingenuity of all the unknown hands whose work was vital to the advancement of civilization.

Please allow up to 3 weeks for production time (this does not included shipping time). See the Info Page for more on policies and shipping.
