Artwork by Midwest painter, Grant Thye.

Inspiration Our art-driven, bold fashion pieces tell tales of travel and adventure. Each piece carries the energy of the hands that constructed it, and begs your audience to ask for the story of hope within the creator. This season, we are inspired by our Midwest roots and passion for expression. Our collaboration with Chicago fine artist, Grant Thye, expresses our need to color outside the lines with bold statements, yet, soft feminine appeal.

alpaca knitwear All our knitwear is made using 100%, Fine Alpaca Fiber; we choose to maintain the natural, high quality of the fiber, not blending with synthetic acrylic, or wools. Alpaca in its pure state is naturally hypo-allergenic (forget that itchy feeling!) warmer than wool and as soft as cashmere. FUN FACT! Alpacas have a low carbon footprint; they have a light impact on the environment they feed on. Harvesting alpaca fiber requires a low amount of energy and water, and no harmful chemicals are used during processing.
