Hand-made Thursdays – Raw Earth & Wild Sky
Raw Earth & Wild Sky is a contemporary organic line inspired by nature’s colors and seasons. Each piece is hand-made in Los Angeles. Signature details include deconstructed seams and raw hems, novelty hand-dyed, hand-stamped and hand-painted techniques along with interesting trims applied in unusual ways to create a raw, unique feel for each piece. The look is beautifully relaxed and broken-in, yet well-crafted.
