Our lungs breathe in life, and effectively breathe out toxins. Pneuma or breath, is what the Ancient Greeks believed kept our souls connected to our bodies. Breath is at the core of Yoga. A sanskrit word meaning union. We often forget that our bodies include lungs beyond the lung organ itself: The ocean from which 50% of the oxygen we breath comes, our skin that breathes in its surroundings and excretes bodily contents, and culture that gives us identity and purpose to live. Made entirely (even the seams and labels) from herbally-dyed or undyed organic cotton and abacá hemp, every ingredient in the production of this collection have done no harm and will do no harm to  our bodies: Our water, skin, and earthly cultures. Designed to flow with the body, the collection contains earthly colours and textures suggestive of bodily tissues, and indigenous woven fabrics whose patterns and techniques originate from the Majapahit Empire that once connected Indonesia and the Philippines. The heart is full when body and clothing are in biological union with the environment. In a world of spectacular consumption, to once again become a thing that feels, is to see bodies as clothing.
