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 our relationship with the seasonal cycles in the Northern hemisphere. Each offering will be available for 1-2 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 Shawl Collar Origami Kaftan. The Shawl Collar Style is a scarf like neckline that twist in center front and incorporates into body of garment, creating a beautifully unique neckline that embodies sophisticated bohemian chic. The Origami Kaftan is 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 cut.
