How do you imagine the Kin-dom of God? In Chacraseca, Nicaragua, an agrarian community whose name literally means "dried up banana grove," the women of Stitching Hope™ speak of abundance, of a place that is green rather than dusty brown. They envision Chacraverde, a green community, vibrant and fruitful, with banana leaves that are lush and green. Dreams of the Kin-dom for them embody the fullness of all creation — all people reconciled into community, ecological integrity and human dignity affirmed, and each person freed to become all they were created to be. The lush beauty of this stole connects us with a people and a place not so far away and engages the church in dreaming toward the Kin-dom of God in our midst.

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.
