June is here and I’m happy to present the latest Artist Series….the Shards of Glass Espadrilles Kit.
Are you ready to create for some serious beauty for your feet? I am so excited for a very special round of The Artist Series. This time, rather than present a new method for making shoes, I’m sharing this super special hand-made screen printed pattern created just for us! Sarah Bertochi, designer and textile artist, has created a positively stunning design exclusively for the espadrilles and, I must say, it suits them so well.
This gorgeous, sophisticated but eye-popping design is called Shards of Glass. It’s perfectly sized for the canvas of the espadrilles and has a fabulous mirror image quality.
I’ll let Sarah explain more:
The inspiration for the design came from a random moment while I was walking my dog, Moose. We walk later in the day as the sun starts to set. I happened to look down at just the right time – the sunlight had shifted and I caught the the sparkle of broken glass. The reflections and the actual shapes of the shards of glass became the building blocks for the pattern design.
Who can’t relate to that moment of inspiration and overwhelming beauty. You can completely see it shining through! How spectacular to now be able to create shoes and wear it on your feet.
There are three colors of the print available, Black, Peach and Bluestone. Only five kits are available in each color, they will be on sale until July 1st.
I’m so excited to see what you create with these prints.
As an extra special bonus, Sarah has stitched up matching bucket hats! You can make your shoes and then pop on a matching bucket hat! Check them out here.
Note: This is a limited edition release. Sale of these espadrilles will end on July 1st, 2022.
