Description

Embroidered Floral Shawl

This striking, loosely knit, dark grey shawl is hand-embroidered in Peru with crimson and marigold flowers surrounded by intertwining green vines. Made of 100% acrylic, it is soft to the touch and has the look and warmth of wool. Generous in size, it is finished with 3-inch long fringe and has a unique triangular shape, which measures 80 inches wide on the long side.

Our cozy wrap is inspired by the Met’s magnificent production of Puccini’s La Bohème in Act I when Mimi and Rodolfo first meet as she recounts her life alone in a lofty garret, embroidering flowers.

History

One of the most popular operas of all time, Puccini’s La Bohème premiered at Turin’s Teatro Regino in 1896. The work, renowned for its beautiful arias and emotional intensity, opens in the Parisian garret of a group of young artists and writers. This is where the poet Rodolfo meets his neighbor Mimì, who knocks on the door and asks to borrow a candle. Thus begins a fateful – and unforgettable – relationship as the two struggle to sustain their love against the challenges of poverty, jealousy and physical decline.
