The cape was created for protection while discovering the deep places. Exploring the woods on a jaunt while foraging for mushrooms, exploring the mind in a warm meditation by the fire, exploring your witchy tendencies and where they may lead you, and exploring the darkest corners of your heart by loving without fear.
The color purple is to connect to the third eye, and raise the awareness to this sacred moment in all its beauty and pain. Let the lavender plant at the moons’ center calm and restore you on your arduous journey. The moon phases remind us that nothing ever stays the same.
Wear the cape as your armor. You are safe here.

Q - Why is it so expensive?
A - Things can only be made cheaply when either someone is underpaid or it's completely automated. Unfortunately, machines haven't taken over all labor yet. So in the meantime we pay a premium for high quality fabrics and labor. While an average top may cost $5 for Forever 21 to make, we pay anywhere from $30-$50. That means on a $68 dollar top, profit may be $30-40 which then must cover operating expenses (website fees, shipping containers, freight charges), taxes, and payroll. Our end of the day profit is closer to $3-6. If we did this for the money, we'd be in the wrong industry. We do this to make an amazing garment you'll love for years.
Q - When are sold out items restocked?
A - Never. Nothing gold can stay. Each piece is specially designed for the vibe and spirit of the season. Once it's gone, it's gone!
Q - Where is it made and who makes it?
A - We only work with small family owned shops employing 8-10 people paying well above minimum wage in Los Angeles, CA.
Q - Is it sustainable and organic?
A - Anyone who claims sustainability while producing a product is greenwashing, intentional or not. We are responsible. To be truly sustainable we should all be wearing undyed, unisex, 100% recycled fabric scraps, government issued uniforms for 5-10 years at a time. While we are not that, we are much, much better than most of the alternatives out there. Our fabric is 99% closed loop, low plastic, made with fair wages, GOTS certified dyed, water based inked, and we donate money to a new charity every month. We will never stop seeking more ways to be make a cleaner and more beautiful piece of clothing!
