Recently Marthe was gifted a handful of samples from Soul Flower’s Basics Collection thanks to a Minneapolis based friend that stopped by our Sample & Seconds Sale. Marthe got right to work adding her unique art to our organic silhouette!

Ever since Marthe was a child, she’s painted on anything and everything. From shoes, to clocks, to walls, it drove her mother insane. Especially when at one point she started to use nothing but boxes full of nail polish to create her art.

We love these one-of-a-kind works of art! Soul Flower threads, reimagined. What a great way to take clothing items that are slightly damaged or unfit for regular retail and bring them to life! All you artists out there, what’s your favorite non-conventional canvas for your art?
