Chi Chi Fat Necklace by GRAIN Design

First there was Necklush, then Elly DuFault’s ‘Pick Up Stitch’ chunky knit chains (which I am a proud owner of), and now GRAIN Design has introduced the ‘Chi Chi Fat Necklace’ named after the vibrant and colorful Chichicastenango Market, northwest of Guatemala City. Chi-Chi’s green and fat cotton design was originally inspired by the shape and construction of skeins of thread used for ikat tie-dying, and as part of GRAIN Design’s sustainable design repertoire, is handmade by fair-trade artisans in Guatemala.
Phat Phiber just keeps getting greener and, well, 'phatter', despite the urban slang limitations.
