Intuitive painter and artist Michelle Blade creates with the magic of the natural world around her – inspiration comes in the whispers of flowers, on the wings of honey bees and the backs of slow-moving garden snails. Michelle’s artful ceramic pieces, aptly named Good Kind Work, depict a gentle simplicity and evoke a folkloric sense of wonderment – every beautiful, hand-painted piece tells its own unique story.
Drawing from these earthly inspirations, Michelle designed a special print that was then hand block-printed with natural Indigo dyes on the canvas of our Farm-to-Closet silk-cotton Dawn Dress. In collaboration with her beautiful design and the garden of life that inspired it, each of these regeneratively grown dresses tells its own story of reciprocal connection and a commitment to honoring Mother Earth.
The Gardener fabric was block printed by hand using pigments from plants in Erode, India. The printers used indigo and more to create the floral design. This fabric is good for your skin and good for Mother Earth! The Dawn Dress was made by Gilberto, one of our talented dressmakers.
