A hip scarf or a politcal statement or both or neither……

Since I’m exhausted from way too many projects overlapping, I’ve been sort of reluctant to post anything to Worn Through which I thought needed extra T.L.C., because these days I’m really low on energy and brain power by the time I return home each evening from work/school. However, there are a few topics that have come across my desk or my dinner table which I’ve kept links to, hoping to find time for a thoughtful post.

Well, I don’t really have time, but, I thought why not just start posting them and let you read them and come to your own conclusions, rather than me always going on and on about my thoughts. Particularly when I’m pooped and my thoughts may not make any sense.

One such topic developed after a recent trip to the Gap, in which we found a scarf in their Project Red line, which was stylin’, multifunctional, and had a very “global” type vibe. But, after a discussion of what that all really meant, when packaged into a Gap holiday purchase, it led to a little Internet research by Harlo and he found an article addressing a variation on this issue.

Check out this interview on Orthodox Anarchist to see how this type of discussion is playing out by others. I’ll leave my thoughts to myself for this evening, but I thought I’d bring the issue to the table and encourage you to think about it.
