My Downtown Eastside Sock Monkey is headed to New Jersey tomorrow! #cueepicsoundtrack

Comment 1 Standard

This hand-sewn adorable and cuddly sock monkey is made with new dark grey wool ladies’ work socks. Katarina received the washed and worn heartwarming external work sock from a Downtown Eastside artist-resident as a gift for support. That artist also made the lovely laced heart. Where has that sock been? What has it been through? The Downtown Eastside (DTES) is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and is known as “Canada’s poorest postal code”. It is also a thriving, creative community.
