It’s the circle of life for old t-shirts to be discontinued and new designs to be released. If you haven’t already noticed, a lot of our Soul Flower tees stick around a long time. It’s because you guys love ’em! If it’s not broke, don’t fix it, right?! We retire old designs almost every season to make room for the new ones. But that doesn’t mean they’re retired forever! Once in awhile, we’ll bring back an old design or remix it somehow. The vibes in some of those classics will never die. (more…)

While we already use low-impact dyes on all our screen printed garments (meaning they are free from heavy metals and chemical mordants and use less energy/water), we wanted to find an even more environmentally friendly printing process. So, without further ado, let me introduce you to dirt dye! (more…)

Ever wondered where our cool screen printed designs come from? Well, it’s probably one of two people! Ryan and Leiah are two artists who take inspiration from the world around them, weave that into a mental design, move it to the drawing board, and then it gets printed! Below is an interview with one of our designers, Ryan, about his Free Spirit design. (more…)
Yogic beliefs are a big part of how we operate. We believe in showing kindness and compassion to people who work in manufacturing clothing. That’s why these items are made in the USA in small batches, hand-cut, sewn, dyed, and manufactured all here! (more…)

Vacationing in a tropical purple paradise, that’s what these pants do for me! The ornate design of the Be Striped Tree Tapestry has been a soul-flower favorite for quite some time and if you love the look of the tapestry like I do, you’ll love these pants, too! How smart are they, aye? I mean, when something is a SF favorite, why not make it available in another form? Ok, pants please! Walla! So, when I get the urge for a getaway, I throw these purple tapestry pants on and utopia awaits me!
It’s easy to see that these pants will trip the purple lovers radar!! My undying love for the color had me practically salivating over these pretty purple pantalones!!
Even the lovely Jacqui from Soul-Flowers noted on my invoice, “More purple for you, Woo!” Yes, it’s a fact, where there is purple clothing to be discovered…there I’ll be! And I do believe that these purple puppies are pajama pants in disguise! Yes they are tapestry but they don’t fail at being completely cozy and fun to wear. It’s also kinda neat that they are fun yet dressy enough for work. I find by slipping into this utopia a day at a job can magically be transformed into a fantasy land of purple play for the day!
|These pants have the same print as the five star favorite Be Striped Tree Tapestry!
The only dilemma I had when choosing these purple pretties was size. I wanted to make sure I got enough length. Sometimes worldly clothing runs a lil’ funky so I decided on the medium for my 5’5” frame. They are great! Not too short, too long, too tight, or too baggy. The elastic tie waist is nice and stretchy; the overall cut is beautiful and flattering with a slight flare at the bottom of the leg. I hand wash most things that are ornate or delicate which is recommended on the tag for these anyway. They have a great weight and are nicely lined, too. Can’t forget these are fair trade and made in Nepal, giving me a warm fuzzy feeling about my totally cool purpley pants!! A great addition to my plethora of purple!!
