I spent a glorious, long day today working in the studio all alone. The phrase “making product” kept floating into my mind, which is interesting, because I think we’re told that to commodify our art as product somehow... lessens it’s value or something? I feel the opposite way though: the farmers at the markets proudly display the final product (freshly picked seasonal veggies) of their hard work and expertise, and mine goes into creating beautiful hand-dyed art for you to wear. These pieces are my product: the end goal, the fruits of my labor. I’ve cultivated a garden of plant-fiber garments, for you to harvest and adorn yourselves with. So there. 💗

Classy BLACK. 🖤 Always a good call. Love this image of @marisol_garcia_figaredo and the day we shared creating it. 💋 She’s wearing the V Cotton Slip Dress in black. GUESS WHAT?!? We’ve been designing a new little black dress>>cut just like this one, only it has sleeves & a scoop neck:) ...Stay tuned!
I have finally named all of my skeins! 🙌🏻
I feel like the names are generic but I tried my best to have fun with them! 🤷🏼♀️
From left: Charred, Sour Sage and Dusty Rose. They’ll be in the shop on 9/16!
I hand dyed this 3 oz steer hide shoulder with indigo with the intention of making wallets out of it, but it’s so pretty that it’ll be painful to cut it up. Anyone want to buy the whole hide for $800? 😉😉😉
Who can resist a little poppet in an earth-toned outfit with a teeny tiny wrist roll and a perfect sleepy pout??? 😍😍😍 I've woken up feeling like I'm fighting all the germs my kids have been coughing into our airspace this week. Hubby is buried in the biggest work project of his whole year. This mama is pooped. But, it's ok, because me and the boys are going to Nana and Poppa's for the weekend 👏 After years of being 24+ hours away from my parents I am still so grateful to pop the kids in the car with allllll the snacks and be just a few hours drive away ❤️ // 📷 by @theeverydaylens featuring our Sage linen 🌿
