When you look beige up in the dictionary it says ”of uncertain origin”. The word is in fact French, but besides that, there isn’t much more to go on. The mystery of beige leaves the definition up to the beholder, and that is the idea behind ”Private Matters”. The scapular is known from the Catholic world, but in this version, is without pictures or text. And here, you wear it on top of your clothing. The work is covered in silk, which adds an intimate and secretive aspect to the otherwise simple form.
