For those who wish to participate in the deeply healing art of wearing locally grown fashion, this b.annie is for you!
My first Soil to Soil inspired design is the b.annie, a 100% natural fiber knit beanie that can fit anyone & be made from any Fibershed producing yarn. I named this beanie design the b.annie because my Mom used to call me Baily Annie, sew b.annie is a play on letter / words of the classic beanie.
The b.annie is purposefully accessible to all body types, “a nod” to everyone to inspire them to start wearing regional fibers. The citizen wearing this art piece supports regenerative agriculture & an american sustainable fashion designer (thanks, guys :).
The b.annnies are offered at $250 here.
For Patreon citizens, i offer an honor system membership of $20 a month for a year, breaking the payments up. Every year you are a member of the Fashion Share tier, you have access to one piece from the limited edition collection i make.
If you're interested in supporting long term at this level, I will be launching new design options to choose from in 2022: the scarf & hoodie.scarf. Feel free to gift your annual membership offering, or get the same design, but a new color from a different region / lighter / heavier fiber that would benefit your collection seasonally & / help rotate clothes out so you don't have to wash them as much........
