I was thrilled/honored/ALL OF THE EMOTIONS to be part of May's L'Esprit de la Mer Kinfolk gathering! Held at the Dolcezza Gelato Factory (swoon), it was an epically gorgeous event featuring an epically amazing list of local partners, including Sweet Root Village, Salt & Sundry, Gordy's Pickle Jar, Huckle & Goose, and more. The individual contributions added up to M A G I C; a huge thanks to the evening's host, Rebecca Gallop of A Daily Something, for extending the invitation to take part.

Rebecca sent over a few inspiration boards and suggested something in the canvas/tent category; after a site visit and a little shibori-research I dived into making the Indigo Sail. Between the 25' ceilings at Dolcezza and the salt + sea theme of the night, a large-scale, draped canvas installation felt RIGHT, and I was grateful for the excuse to jump into a textile project. Measuring 400 square feet of hand-dyed, hand-pieced canvas, it took roughly four full days to complete, and I'm just so enormously proud of how it turned out. It now lives over at Panda Head Handmade, as part of the On Loan collection!

Rebecca has a G O R G E recap of the evening at her blog, A Daily Something (with all the G O R G E images above + more, taken by the ladies of Sweet Root Village) – it truly was an amazing gathering to have had take place in DC, and I was stoked to have been there.
