Description

La Bohème Knit Shawl

Embroidered in pink and blue flowers with dark green leaves, ourstylish dark charcoal gray poncho is a standout addition to our collection. It provides warmth and protection on wet, chilly days. Measuring  33” wide x 33” long, it is trimmed in 3” long fringe and is worn over the head for a cozy comfortable fit.

This piece is reflective of Mimi’s scene in the Met’s much-loved production of Puccini’s La Bohème, when she recounts her life alone in a lofty garret embroidering flowers, waiting for the spring.

Each one-of-a-kind piece is handmade from soft 100% acrylic yarns by artisans in the Andes of Peru, who depend upon income from their unique craft as the sole means of their support.

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.
