Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. the surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.)
I was looking for an asymmetrical jacket (because they’re easy to take in) for work on Etsy last week (B.T.W., I found exactly what I wanted in my favorite Etsy designer’s shop, as usual!). While I was looking, some of the things that turned up went way beyond asymmetry. I really enjoy asymmetrical clothing when it’s clear that it’s deliberate. However, many of the items that appeared on my search ranged from crooked to tortured to just plain wrong.
