New Vests Ahoy

Hello,

Well, it’s been a while. I hope everyone welcomed in the New Year with a glass of bubbles in their hand, dancing on the table. 2012 feels good already.

The new vests are in the shop. The lovely folk at Rapanui have printed them for me and you with much love and care. Modeled by Rachael Jones, director and opp shop queen and Laurie Hastings, talented illustrator and chocolate eating professional. They’re available in white, grey, fuchsia and turquoise, S, M and L.

*POOF* went the vests

All the Yoga Will Save the World vests have sold out.

One is in France being worn by an artist sitting in French cafes drawing. One is winging it’s way to the sunny shores of Australia to be worn a dancing lady with three of the most gorgeous children. 2 boxes of vests and hoodies have hopped over the channel to prance down the Champs Elysees. In London along the shores of the Thames you may see them on an actress, on rowers and coxes, on a writer who goes by the name of Panther, on crazy London cyclists and on that girl running like a greyhound around Richmond Park.

Thank you to everyone.

I am getting the next vests to Yoga Will save the World HQ pronto. I decided to pick the design that was ‘loved’ by that dancing mum who was the first to order off the YWSTW online shop. It’s going to look a little something like this:

Under Construction: About Bibi

Today I wanted to tell you about Bibi who has designed 20 limited edition cushion for Yoga Will Save the World.

Bibi set up a handmade green cushion company Gabbea driven by passion for creating and her mission to help as much as possible to reduce the impact on the environment.

She uses 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottle felt, known as Eco-fi. It is strong, soft, shrinkage-resistant and colourfast felt fabric.

Below are a couple of images of a little fuchsia yogi man she has appliqued onto one of her cushions. Nipples included. I also stole a quote from her site by Jim Jarmusch.

”Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is nonexistent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery—celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from—it’s where you take them to.”
– Jim Jarmusch

A Poll on Yoga Prints

Hello, it’s been a small while.
I have been filling my days designing, procrastinating, drinking plenty of coffees, and waiting for summer to start and this drizzle to stop.
There are hoodies, vests, notebooks, prints and greeting cards are in the  design pipeline. There are 4 designs are below. I’m trying to decide which to print on a vest and thought perhaps I could throw it out there to you. If you want to be kept up to date on the final decision and on the final online shop launch subscribe to this blog or join the facebook page. Thank you, Rebecca x
