Jane Eyre Literary Scarf
A vintage-inspired photo collage of roses, lace, bows, and hydrangeas (on a neutral palate of pale gray, taupe, white, sepia and ivory) is the subtle background of one of the most moving excerpts from Jane Eyre, rendered in calligraphy, of Jane's famous outburst to Mr. Rochester:
“Do you think I am an automaton? — a machine without feelings? and can bear to have my morsel of bread snatched from my lips, and my drop of living water dashed from my cup? Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain, and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! — I have as much soul as you — and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you. I am not talking to you now through the medium of custom, conventionalities, nor even of mortal flesh: it is my spirit that addresses your spirit; just as if both had passed through the grave, and we stood at God's feet, equal — as we are!”
The scarf can be worn as a shawl with a sleeveless dress in summer, or, year-round, tucked into the neckline of a dress, coat or jacket. It’s both tailored and feminine. This handmade chiffon scarf is printed with eco-friendly inks by an artisan craftsperson, and packaged in a sweet zippered case.
60" x 18”. Hand wash.
