This collection began with research into agricultural workwear: overalls as associated with American farmers and saris as associated with farmers in India. This contrast propelled the garment development towards draped elements wrapped over and under more solid structures.  

This collection emphasizes a connection to community and to the natural world.

All garments are made using natural fibers and natural dyes. Most of the textiles are deadstock, thus extending their life cycles which can nonetheless end in compost, returning to the Earth as food for the next life.
