This smart little indigo and natural grey wool beret was donated from the personal collection of Catherine Joslyn of CR Designs, from her travels in Bolivia. It was crocheted by Martha Perg, of the Aymara Indian culture and the group Artesania Sorata in La Paz, Bolivia. Artesania Sorata is a group of women 6 – 60 who came together to try to keep their artistic traditions alive and rekindle their cultural identity. From an early age they all learn to tend sheep and alpaca, spin, weave and dye fleece.
This classic style hat measures 10″ across and is very stretchy so will fit most size heads.
About Catherine Joslyn and CR Designs:
Joslyn’s interest is to engage viewers in curiosity about other times and places, including myth and fantasy. She invites you into her compositions, in which she buries clues as to the magical or mundane worlds she references. Her small pictures and wall hangings on unstretched cloth use a variety of surface techniques to play with decorative pattern.
