RITES Part III: The Luminous Thread
In the depths of shadow your path lies invisible
subducted beneath layers of fog
instead you walk in fragments:
tea leaf dregs, a stone, something gold
In the land of wordless pause
you begin pawing along for a cord
tracing textures, intricate forms
in the depths of shadow you build a rope
glowing and intricate
something to hold onto
weaving a rope back together,
you pick and scrape together bits of thread until
a whole cord locks into spiral,
reminds you who you are
The Luminous Thread includes hand-dyed and braided Indigo cords. Made from beautiful, soft, heavyweight black cotton-lycra cloth, dyed in a closed-loop system to protect our waterways. Suitable for dancing, napping, acrobatics, or ritual use. Constructed by hand with care and purpose: made to last. Crotch is lined with cotton and heavyweight cotton-lycra cloth is opaque and lovely. These garments are made to last.
Organic cotton-lycra cloth is grown and knit in the USA. Cotton cloth is patterned, cut, dyed, printed, and sewn in house by Rachel Blodgett and Sarah Von Sternberg. All design, vision, and pattern work by Rachel Blodgett.
