    Product description

    A lightweight mid-length “Sew for Bees” kimono in a beautiful wildflower floral print

    As a nature-inspired label, we are excited to have created a new Sew for Bees print and a range of kimonos. Because of the critical plight of the bee and their importance as pollinators, we commissioned Devon-based nature artist, Alex Boon, to illustrate a selection of the wildflowers that we all need to nurture and plant for bees.

    We’ve focussed on blue and purple flowers as these are the ones that bees are most drawn to. In fact, this is the first time that a clothing label has communicated this vital story through its prints. In the same way, we aim to create wearable art, this is a natural addition to our range.

    As Alex says: “Bees see colour best in the blue spectrum, so growing blue and purple flowers is a great way to attract them to your garden. Grow a range of different flower types to attract bigger bees (with longer tongues) and smaller bees (such as honeybees, with shorter tongues). Your efforts will not only help the bees, but also a range of other insects such as moths, butterflies and grasshoppers.”

    The lightweight Mid-length “Sew for Bees” kimono jacket comes in a beautiful floral print. Uniquely, this women’s kimono is based on individual drawings by Alex Boon of both plants and different bees on a midnight blue background. We have called it “Sew for Bees” as a play on sowing seeds and sewing garments. We also have this print in a short kimono style as well as in a frilled kimono design available to shop online today.

    The flowers included in the print are: Bluebells, Grape hyacinth, Green alkanes, Purple toadflax, Bugle, Cornflower, Tufted vetch and Self-heal.

    Firstly, the lightweight Mid-length kimono can be worn both casually or smart. It is made from a draping, silky viscose fabric. It has a stitching detail down the front opening and wide 3/4 length sleeves. As this kimono jacket is longer, it’s great for anyone who likes a bit more length. Making it exceptionally comfortable to wear whilst ensuring you look fabulously stylish.

    Our styling tip would be to pair this lightweight short kimono with a camisole top or polo neck jumper for warmth. Furthermore, team it up with straight-legged trousers or jeans. Alternatively, wear it over a simple block-coloured dress and add a set of heels.

    From My Mother’s Garden uses environmentally responsible fabrics and techniques wherever possible. On that note, these new styles are created using sublimation printing, which minimises fabric wastage. Not to mention, the first collection includes styles made of Viscose which is a sustainable fabric.
