Hey, I'm Jessica! I'm raising funds to back my first production run, called "In Bloom", through pre-sales! I'm am committed to making beautiful and quality clothing that can be enjoyed without being harmful to the planet. Watch the video above to learn more about our process and see the clothing capsule up close. Here is a behind the scenes pic of myself and the team on-set for the film:
If we reach our goal, we will be ordering quality reclaimed textiles ( silk noile, organic cotton, and printed silk charmeuse). Our designs are available in sizes XS-XL ( see our size chart at the end of our campaign) ....we will grade each of our patterns and cut and sew them at a local facility here in Vancouver.
After the cut and sew, I will piece-dye the garments by hand in natural dyes (made from plants), at my studio in Vancouver. Each of the capsule items are available in their natural colour or botanical colour.
The "Anemone Tee" is made from 100% Organic Cotton and is available in our 5 colour palette: 1) Natural (no dye colour added), 2) Prairie Sunset (pink), 3) Artisan's Orange (rusty orange) , 4) Baby Blue (light blue), and 5) Turkish Sea (darker blue).
The "Tiger Lily Top" and "Plumeria Palazzo Pant" are made with 100% Silk Noile. It is available in 5 colour-ways: Natural (no dye colour added), Prairie Sunset (pink), Artisan's Orange (rusty orange) , Baby Blue (light blue), and Turkish Sea (darker blue). They can be purchased as separates or together as a set (they work so well together!)
This versatile "Forget-Me-Not" Kimono Jacket could be your next wardrobe essential. Wear it as an open jacket over your fave outfit or tie it up and wear it as a robe. Made with 100% Silk Noile, it is available in 5 colour-ways: Natural (no dye colour added), Prairie Sunset (pink) , Artisan's Orange (rusty orange) , Baby Blue (light blue), and Turkish Sea (darker blue).
The "Wallflower Wrap Top" is available in printed silk charmeuse as shown above. The print pictured may or may not be available at time of production. Once ordered, we will include in your survey what print options are available. They will be in a floral print and white background... and a beautiful selection... promise!
This comfy "Daisy Dreamer" sun-dress can also be worn as a vest! The beautiful back lacing allows for a tailored or relaxed fit, designed to flatter all sizes! It is made from 100% Silk Noile, and is available in 5 colour-ways: Natural (no dye colour added), Prairie Sunset (pink) , Artisan's Orange (rusty orange) , Baby Blue (light blue), and Turkish Sea (darker blue).
The maxi-length "Lavender Kimono Duster Robe" is available in printed silk charmeuse (example above). This stunning robe is designed to be versatile in your closet: wrap up in it's luxury or wear it out over a tank top and jeans... so many possibilities! The print pictured may or may not be available at the time of production. Once ordered, we will include in your survey what print options are available. They will be in a floral print on a white background... and again, a beautiful selection... promise!

Do you want a different combo of items not offered in our Rewards? No problem! You can increase your pledge amount on a single item and then when the survey is emailed to you, you can customize and add items to your order.
Questions? Feel free to email me: email@example.com
Our Combo rewards offer special discounts!
If we exceed our goal, we will put extra funds into building a community-based in-house dye facility, dye garden, seed share program, and sustainable education for all ages. Our stretch goal is $50,000 CAD.
We have been colour developing with natural dyes over the last year. Each piece from this collection is dyed separately, making each piece a one-of-a-kind. Here are a few disclaimers: The colour may not match exact to what's on your screen... but we will make sure its a beautiful hue and as close as possible to the one you have chosen. Our colours and fabric are "Natural Looking", and not always "perfect". Our dye recipes are colourfast, meaning the colours are permanent, though natural dyes can fade slightly over time or in bright sunlight. We will have care instructions sent to you and on our website at time of delivery. In condensed form, the care for our garments looks like this: hand wash, in cold water, hang or lay flat to dry. (This type of care will preserve your colours and garment life-span).
*Dye colours available are pictured in "the collection" photos above.
**PS : You don't have to determine your colours and sizes before pledging, we'll send out a survey, with colour and size options after you've placed your order :)
*** silk charmeuse prints may differ, we will offer 2-3 #naturallyelegant options in your survey. The reason behind this is we are taking orders before producing, and what is available now may not be at time of production... because we are sourcing reclaimed textiles.
Don't know how to Measure? Here's how to determine the closest fit to your size: note: I recommend to order a size that won't fit you tight. Though our fabrics are pre-shrunk before assembly, they are made from natural fibres and meant to fit as a looser, moree casual fit, ... for comfort and natural chic-ness!
BUST : Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
WAIST : Measure around your natural waistline, below your rib cage, leaving the tape a bit loose.
HIP: Measure around the fullest part of your body, above the top of your legs.
Here's our size chart, remember to round up your size. We will not be able to accept returns or exchanges on our Kickstarter orders, so please feel free to message if you have any questions!

Funding Period: April 19- May 20, 2018
We are working towards a greener and cleaner approach to clothing production and fashion. By choosing to be a sustainable brand, we are pursuing healthy choices. Each garment is sewn and dyed by hand. This is a slower process than fast fashion... and we believe this is the future: Working with nature rather than against it.
We have our prototypes ready and production lined up, ready to fill our orders if we our project is backed. We have to reach basic minimums for each design in order to produce the line at the price we are offering.
What you can expect: The dyeing process: since we are taking this additional step in our manufacturing, our lead times may be a bit longer than usual. We estimate by the time our fabric and trims arrive for cut and sew, we will have 1-2 months of production and then shipping lead times. We hope that if you decide to support our venture, you will be patient with our slow fashion ideals and philosophy.
And a big thank you to the talent who made this look-book possible:
Risks and challenges
If we reach our goal, we will package and ship your purchase in environmentally-friendly materials and deliver them to your specified address, approximately within a 4 month time-frame once we have received everyones survey ( usually 2 weeks after the Kickstarter has ended). Because our garments are handmade and dyed, and we care about the people making these garments, we want to thank you for your patience in advance:)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
