A sublime adaptation of our perennially popular "French Lilac" dupioni, this striking taffeta was designed by and made exclusively for us! That means you can't get it anywhere else!

This cold fusion of violet and white creates an unforgettable contrast accompanied by a silvery resonance that recalls the bright purple flower from the dandelion family! In early Celtic times, it was regarded as the embodiment of the vegetation goddess Chicory, and with her purple eyes she constantly scanned the horizon for her spouse. Nowadays, the chicory flower graces roadsides and meadows all over the world and is a symbolic reminder of the importance of self-care, particularly in situations where we may have lost ourselves while taking care of others.

Features microlines that measure 0.5mm - very tiny, and perfect for adding a nuanced texture unlike anything you ever imagined!

This extraordinary hue is a deep hypnotic violet infused with a rich dark brown! It was designed by - and made exclusively for - us, so you cannot find it anywhere else!

“Bruja” is the Spanish word for witch. While the stereotype might make one think of a mysterious woman of color who wields magic to control other people, the practice of brujeria evolved into a form of resistance when colonizers tried to subjugate people in faraway lands and prevent their spiritual connection to the earth. A Bruja, therefore, is not a fantastical figment of the imagination, but a modern-day spiritual woman whose goal is to tap into a deeper language of the universe around us…

This bewitching brew, comprised of two slightly different magical shades of purple, is a stunning variant of our very popular “Asteria” taffeta color that recently sold out!

An incantation is a magical formula that triggers a transformative effect on a person, creature, or object. It can be spoken, sung, or chanted, and is usually performed during mysterious ceremonial rituals by wizards, witches, or fairy godmothers. In such scenarios, the incantation’s energy sometimes issues from the magic wand wielded by the spell-caster…
