A Fundraiser to Fight Racism

As mothers, fathers, and caregivers, our instinct is to protect our sons and daughters - to hold them close, and keep them safe. But what do we do when the world is not safe for them? The injustices that people of color endure have gone on for too long. No mother should fear for her child's safety because of the color of their skin. Enough is enough.

Starting today, we are fundraising to fight dehumanization, indifference, and racism. We do this in honor of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and too many others before them. Please join us to support three organizations committed to this struggle: Black Lives Matter, Know Your Rights Camp, and the NAACP.

We are raffling off this one-of-a-kind, hand-dyed, Sakura Bloom x Mr. Blue Skye Onbuhimo. 100% of ticket sales will be split three ways and donated directly to:

About this Mr. Blue Skye x Sakura Bloom Onbuhimo

This piece of silk was the inspiration for Sakura Bloom x Mr. Blue Skye, Vol. VI. Rachel dyed this piece of silk and used it to show us her new collaboration idea, marbled silks, way back in early 2018. We went on to create an entire collection of marbled silks that launched in January of 2019. This piece was never used and remained in our vault of archives.
About the Vol. VI Collaboration:

What if you could capture the essence of a constellation or a geode in its natural state forever? A never-ending kaleidoscope of complementary colors meeting where art and chance are together in humble practicality. 

With nature's blueprint always as her guide, Mr. Blue Skye has created magic again in our sixth collaboration. This time, our signature dupioni silks have been individually hand-dyed in a painstaking two-person per piece process. Luxurious yet laid back; these one-of-a-kind works of art weave the natural world in with you and your baby.

Whether it's the steadfast pattern in turquoise, or the profile of a prickly pear cactus at dusk, the colors that Ehlin-Smith chooses are chosen with purpose. Then they are marbled in a handmade trough where she and her mom carefully lay each yardage - to lift a wonderful artwork that is ready to become a Sakura Bloom carrier.
