Our latest Wildcat Collection is part of a series of animal inspired prints that I can’t wait to roll out through the rest of 2022! When wearing them, my hope is they help us reconnect to and embrace with wholeness, our innate wildness. 

Now, I’m not talking about the wild energy that can be associated with the recklessness we brought to the bar on our 21st birthday (but maybe some of that is included too haha). I’m trying to reach the unrestricted and inborn wildness that has been neglected and domesticated by society's vision of who we are ‘supposed to be’ as women. It is something that we are born with and many times our inner child nurtures and embraces fully. It is where our creativity is generated and our capacity for love and play can grow exponentially if it is attended to and supported. 

It is this sense of wildness and wonder that I am realizing I buried a long long time ago. I can even pin-point moments in my life where my decision was actually one of the many layers that repressed the natural vibrancy I had as a child. 

But most importantly, now, I am remembering all the versions of myself that were undeniable embodiments of living and honoring my wildness. With that thought in mind, when designing this Wildcat Print, I depicted several faces of different wildcats hidden throughout the skin. I see each one of their faces as a different version of your wildness that needs to come back to the surface. Each wildcat is a reminder of the moments we were living with the most authentic, clear, unhindered wildness. That wildness is always within us, and we just need to prioritize and let that energy roam freely again. 

Roam free, free range humans! Enjoy!
