Soft Heart: Hawthorn and Rose Window Leotard preorder
When the energetic input of what’s around us feels too much, it is a signal to return to the heart. In the midst of darkness, it is up to us to be the light, to bring the light. This our main intention behind Serpent & Bow's offerings for this Emperor year, 2020: devotional artwork worn to uplift softening and presence, as major foundations of inner strength.
Hawthorn and Rose are timeless lovers- thorned beauties that ask us to deepen into our hearts, trusting that we may be protected in vulnerability and soft presence. The Hawthorn and Rose leotard features a glowing candle altar across the stomach, supported by wild rose and Hawthorn imagery throughout. A window cutout over the solarplexus creates an opening for your light to shine through, golden and held within the soft embrace of Hawthorn leaves and roses.
This leotard is dyed a beautiful berry pink with natural cochineal. The back side features a crescent of rose thorns, encircling the back side of your heart.
Available in any size: XS-XL (see our sizing matrix) and made to measure for any size beyond standards. Please note your measurements or size in the order notes, or reach out by email for assistance.
This first batch will ship in time for Valentine's day :
Cotton cloth is patterned, cut, dyed, printed, and sewn in house by Rachel Blodgett with help from Sarah Von Sternberg. Preorder pieces may take up to 8 weeks to ship as the process from double-mordanting, dyeing, cutting, sewing, printing, wrapping is time intensive. : ) They will be completed with love! Let us know if you are expecting them for a special occasion.
Natural dyes are sensitive to shifts in PH- please do not bleach. For best results, hand wash, hang to dry, and store out of direct sunlight when not in use. Expect color to shift over time, in response to the natural minerals in your wash water. This is living botanical color.
