Printed batik fabric

In order to create a batik fabric, recycled wax is melted and applied to the fabric using a stamped pattern. Edwina carves each stamped design herself in foam, which is easier to repurpose and work with than wood. Together with several women in Accra, Ghana, Edwina and her team always create designs that play on both pattern and layered color in a truly original way. Since we began working together in 2018, we've produced over 40 unique textiles together, keeping them in continuous production since we started. We're so honored to share this collaboration with Edwina and her team!

    My Favorite Shirt

    I love this shirt, it is light and fun. It goes with any outfit-I tend to wear very casual tee shirts and shorts or sweatpants as I am a painter and I can put this shirt over my tee and go out and look dressed up.

    Three Cheers for Ten Mothers

    I love black & white as my baseline color palette, in fashion, interior decor, paper goods, exterior house trim- it's everywhere around here!! However, as much as I love black & white, it is usually realized in stripes (🖤🤍), dots, plants, skulls or toile. Until I saw Ten Mothers. This shirt gives me a definite mood boost when I wear it, or even see it! I enjoy a bit of edgy and Ten Mothers brings that to my ensemble every time, regardless of the overall vibe of my look.

    Sleeves too long! I may cut them off and hem at short-sleeved jacket length and use the cut-off fabric for pockets! Love the Ten Mothers!
