Unique hand made piece. Part of a composition of a ring, hat and shoe. All three made from hand-made paper manufactured in the artisanal paper mill ‘Het Oude Klooster’ in Eerbeek, The Netherlands.

Are these for Cinderella who longs for her prince on a white horse or for the woman who decided to marry herself? More and more people choose to go through life as a single and they confirm their decision with a self-marriage ceremony. Does this point to individualisation gone too far or just the logical next step towards a society of independent and self-confident people?
