So often beauty comes to us in the form of tangible gifts, passed on to us by those we love and who have come before us. Even more lovely is when these goods were actually intended for us from their inception, handmade with us in mind. This to me is the very heart of the handmade world, and I want to honor it with a collection that is very personal and built from the handiwork that was passed down to me from my own family. Dowry is a compilation of literal translations of some of my own family heirlooms, some imagery is only from memory, and some prints are simply imagined companions that reference the handmade, hand stitched, and the well-loved. Dowry is at once nostalgic and energetic… a new love with a past life.
