Dandelion Days

3rd Season + Dandelion Post Collab

The Movement Collection

3rd Season Designs is one of the first brands I brought into Dandelion Post. I met Alycia and Mabel at a Renegade Craft Fair and fell in love with their textile designs. I was so excited to get the opportunity to create a collection with them. Truth be told, most of the creative power came from them, but the Movement Collection concept was created through conversations we had last year, just as Covid cases were ramping up and Dandelion Post and myself had just moved across the country. Everyone was experiencing life shifts. Everyone was figuring out how to move forward with so many unknowns. 

Put more eloquently by 3rd Season: Subtle movements are observed in this collection through incremental shifts in color and time. Natural blending occurs, further blurring the overlapping shapes between each color. Our collective understanding that change is constant parallels our need to keep moving in a forward direction. Continuous repetition of individual graphed lines becomes part of a large print layered with a field of color. Negative lines become positive, pushing the boundaries where discovery is endless.

End-of-Season Sale

Last year posed serious problems for production, deliveries, and frankly just being open. What we could get in the shop was often received at awkward times in the season. So this year our end-of-season sale will also include some major deals on styles for spring, summer, fall, and winter!

Give Back Program

Give Back Program

When faced with closing our shop because of shelter-in-place we joined the Together Apart Alliance as a way to give back a portion of sales to Feeding America, while also striving to sustain our own small business by offering a discount to encourage shopping.

Our shop alone was able to donate 3000 meals through Feeding America during this campaign!

When I first opened the shop in 2015 part of my mission was to give back a portion of sales to organizations fighting for equality for all, women's rights, and environmental protection. Over the past 5 years we have donated portions of our sales with small campaigns, but nothing consistently simply because we operate on very small margins. Now I figure a small impact is better than no impact at all. Starting in June 2020 we will be making a bigger commitment!

We will donate 5% of sales to different organizations each season. You will be able to see the list of organizations in the footer of our website.

Studio Visit with PO-EM

Studio Visit with PO-EM

PO-EM is a creative collection of handmade textiles, wares and art by artist & designer Carla Venticinque-Osborn. Collections take inspiration from stories, poems, the hand's work, the animal gaze, storytelling through pattern, utility, and merging old things with new things. Every piece is intent on being genuine, and serves as an ode to the handmade.

Last summer I had the chance to go to New York to view the Spring/Summer collections for 2020. While I was there I took the subway to Brooklyn to visit the PO-EM studio. Owner and designer Carla Venticinque-Osborn showed me her newest collection (now available), let me take photos of her workspace, and recommended a great lunch spot, Five Leaves. One thing I've noticed from visiting designers in their workspace is the abundance of natural light. Carla's space has beautiful light and a cool exposed brick wall.

Carla works with artisans in India, Guatemala, and Mexico to produce her original textiles exploring traditional methods like block printing, weaving, and resist-dying.

The "Camo" print below was designed by Carla for her SS20 collection. She starts with art which is then turned into a block printed pattern. Block printing is when an artisan carves a design into a block to create a stamp. Then with ink applies that stamp to create a pattern on fabric.

PO-EM is a sustainable brand producing via socially and environmentally positive channels of production. They use natural non-toxic dyes and materials and support  craftspeople-artisans-makers. Their artful clothing are also relaxed styles, reminding us to slow down in this world.
