This Offering was inspired by Ostara which is a celebration of the Spring Equinox. I'm using the Wheel of the Year as a jumping off point for each offering to honor and deepen our relationship with the seasonal cycles in the Northern hemisphere. Each offering will be available for 2-3 weeks and then will end in time for me to make and ship your garment so that it arrives before that Sabbath. I'm so excited to share a more in depth journey into my life's work as an herbalist, clothing designer, yogini, and environmentalist. It is my hope that through these offering we will connect more deeply with Gaia together.
The Garment Design: The garment design for this offering is the Origami design made with Tussah or Raw Silk. The Origami is a relaxed cut with pockets incorporated into front panel detailing, making this design highly functional yet sophisticated in it’s unique accent and cut. Simple V Shaped Neckline makes it easy to pair this garment with a statement necklace.
