What Is a Mourning Keepsake?

It is a keepsake crafted from the clothes of your late loved one.


Such a keepsake celebrates the life of the person who passed away. Their clothes become colors, textures, small details in which life once lived softly lingers as a memory. Clothes of the late person join your life in a different form. It is a way of respectfully re-purposing the clothes and gently returning them to you.

A mourning keepsake silently acknowledges your grief journey. It recognizes the resilience of human spirit that brings bereaved from the darkness of sorrow back into the light. It is also a milestone - it marks the moment when it became possible to look at the clothes, think what to do with them, imagine the future.


Most importantly, a mourning keepsake helps you heal by bringing meaning and action. Taking care of the clothes in a meaningful way addresses the universal human need to act, find a solution and move on.
