Wee Folk Dresses
I've traveled to Ireland twice in the last two years to collect stories about Irish fairies known as The Wee Folk. They are the aos sí, a diminutive supernatural race on "the Other Side" driven down underground by human beings since "the start o' the world." As beautiful and ethereal as they are, they can also be vicious and vindictive. Irish storytellers today mesmerize audiences with encounters that their grandparents had with the Wee Folk (usually with haunted or disastrous outcomes.) Many Irish people will tell you they don't believe in fairies, but they still won't go near a fairy rath or fort, or cut down a whitethorn bush. My dresses are all one of a kind, made from natural materials found the woods of Maine. They measure about two inches across and six inches tall, each with their own handcrafted hanger. Some are encased in custom shadowboxes. Each dress has its own back story, which you can find by clicking on each photo. Some are also for sale on our Etsy page.
