Sargaço Shawl


Sargaco Shawl
Despite the winter deep-freeze here in Ontario, I’m dreaming of the sun, blue waters and airy shawls. Sargaço Shawl is a perfect fit for dreams of tropical warmth.

Sargaço is the Portuguese word for sargasso, the type of seaweed for which the Sargasso Sea is famous. The Sargasso Sea sits in a still part of the ocean, providing the plants a place to grow and develop “a central point at which the floating bodies unite.” (from chapter 11 of Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys) The central panel of this shawl provides the point of stillness, while around it swirls the foam of the ocean. Slowly one begins to see the stems of seaweed emerging until the plants fully form along the bottom edge. Sparkling among the fronds are beads, highlighting the movement of the seaweed among the waves.
