Stole: Gift of Life

$120.00
* Length:

This handmade stole from the Stitching Hope Center in Chacraseca, Nicaragua, abounds with imprints of leaves from northwestern Nicaragua which represent the gift of life displayed in the natural habitat of the women who painted it. Sugar cane — a major export product — and yucca — a sustaining, nutritional vegetable — provide sustenance for Nicaragua's rural communities. In the green liturgical seasons, this stole reminds the church of God's creative, sustaining presence manifest in the abundance of creation.

Sizing

All stole measurements are from the nape of the neck to the end of the fabric. Sizing is a matter of preference.

  • Short = 49 to 50 inches
  • Standard = 51 to 52 inches
  • Long = 53 to 54 inches

Custom sizes can be made for children or very tall adults! When placing a custom order, be sure to tell us in the checkout comments what length you would like: measure from the nape of the neck down. (The total length of the stole will be twice this.)

Because of the handmade nature of Stitching Hope™ products, there will be some variation color and pattern. All fabrics are hand-painted.
