This Offering was inspired by the Sabbath Mabon which is a celebration of the Autumn Equinox from September 21st - 29th. Mabon honors the balance of Light and Dark while welcoming the shift into darkness that follows. 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 Many Moons Origami Below Knee Kaftan. The Many Moons neckline style is a V-neck with a slight cowl, making it extremely versatile in its simplicity. Low enough for a statement necklace, while still offering coverage. The Origami Kaftan silhouette has an extremely relaxed cut with pockets incorporated into front panel detailing. A Dolmen Sleeve adds even more drape and flow to this sophisticated yet lounge worthy design.
