This Offering was inspired by the Sabbath Samhain which is a celebration of the end of Harvest Season on Oct 31st - Nov 1st. Also known as hollows eve it is a time when the veil is thin and communion with the Spirit world is even more accessible. 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 Chunky Cowl Aphrodite Below Knee Cape in our Light Hemp/Organic Cotton. A perfect design for layering into Winter. The Chunky Cowl is a long relaxed neckline that can be pulled up as a fitted hood or left to drape at the neck. The narrow cowl design is excellent for keeping you toasty warm when there’s a chill in the air. A Gaia Goddess essential, the Aphrodite is a ritual worthy choice with a flowy shape that tapers in slightly from wrist to hem.
