The Art of Origami

5W22125-393The ancient art form of origami has been handed down from parent (or relative) to child through many generations, all over the world. The word origami comes from the Japanese words “ori” which means “folding” and “kami,” which means “paper.” To make origami, paper is folded in many different ways to form beautiful creations. Origami art is a highly revered art form in Japan. It was once taught in schools, but today, children learn the craft at home.

Origami served as inspiration for our newest collection, particularly on our Boy’s Origami Graphic Tee. The graphic on this tee is of a origami crane. The crane is perhaps the most well-known origami model. It is also the international symbol for peace. While it may look hard, origami just takes some practice! Learn how to make an origami crane and pass the art form down to your little citizen.

Introducing Citizen Blue

tea collection citizen blue

We’re excited to announce our first collection of Citizen Blue – a semi-annual collection that celebrates the magical spots we stop along the way to somewhere else. Rooted in rich indigo hues, Citizen Blue revisits heritage Tea styles and favorite prints from places we’ve already been and offers new designs inspired by places we’ve seen only glimpses of.

Citizen Blue is a voyager, a nomad. Not quite here or there, the collection draws inspiration from the journey and all of the magical spots we stop along the way to our final destination. It is truly global inspired, as pieces within a single collection range from Japan to Mexico.

Here, we share with you a look behind a few of this season’s designs…
