This Offering was inspired by the Sabbath Litha or Summer Solstice. I'm using the Wheel of the Year as a jumping off point for each offering to honor and deepen my relationship with the seasonal cycles in my 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, student, and environmentalist. It is my hope that through these offering we will connect more deeply with Gaia together.
The Design: The Flip V Kaftan has an extremely versatile Neckline that is a Low V on one side and a High V on the other. This garment can be flipped to have low V in front or back. The Kaftan shape is an oversized, shapeless silhouette that can easily be dressed up or down.
