The Shroud of Brooklyn

Q: Can you take undesirable elements – grass and dirt stains – and turn them into something valuable?
A: Yes. Meet bottledBrooklyn, the smart and resourceful NYC souvenir that does good.

  • 6" corked glass test tube
  • Muslin cloth (contains traces of Brooklyn dirt, grass, water & luck)
  • Cardboard display stand
  • Brooklyn Map by Numbers
  • Muslin drawstring pouch
bottledBrooklyn is proud to present our namesake, aka The Shroud of Brooklyn. This camouflage design contains cloth that has traveled throughout one of New York City's most famous boroughs and has the stains to prove it. Because this product is hand-made, each and every piece is unique and full of character. The Shroud of Brooklyn is the perfect way to have an authentic Brooklyn souvenir.
"My intention for this design was to create a piece of conceptual art. At the time, friends from all over the world were staying with me in Brooklyn, and almost everyone brought home a souvenir that was made in a different country. There's nothing wrong with that, but I wanted to create something that spoke to the outsourcing of novelty souvenirs. For those who supported me, thank you. And for those who criticized me, I thank you too."
—R.C., Designer
