A Tribute

I think about the garments we make as final tributes to the person for whom they are created.  The intricate work, lush fabrics, and thoughtful design is in honor of the life lived, and a fantastic send-off into whatever might come next.  The presence of mind that fine sewing requires focuses our energy into each piece, so each stitch becomes another reminder of the importance of honesty, clarity, and respect for the individual who will wear the garment into eternity.  The garments are designed so that the deceased can be dressed with dignity and grace, rather than in a wrestling match as with regular clothing not created specifically for this purpose.  We believe we are working on something very special, and hope you will continue to follow our journey.  Thanks as always for your interest.
