Phoenix Heart X Mini Tipi
The Conscious Heart Sweater came to life because I had a desire to use every piece of scrap fabric. Over the years of designing collections, I hoarded these scraps that would normally be thrown away because I wanted Copious to be as eco-conscious as possible. This is how the Conscious Heart Sweater was born. Each sweater is unique and not only has a heart on the front but a smaller one on the inside that stitches through to the back. You can literally wear your love of fashion and support less waste in the industry with your Conscious Heart Sweater.
The Mini Tipi collaboration is one of a mutual desire to make our fabric, all of our fabric useable. Many big brands don’t see their scrap fabric as anything but garbage, but as I have said many times before, fabric is not garbage. It does not decompose, so it is our job as designers to come up with unique ways to repurpose it. Mini Tipi makes gorgeous blankets, shawls, bags, and mittens, the latter of the two being smaller accessories that use up smaller pieces of their scrap fabric. As those pieces got smaller though it became harder for them to use, that is when they reached out to me.
Each sweater is unique and has a heart on the front and an even smaller one on the inside that stitches through to the back. You can literally wear your love of fashion and support less waste in the industry with your Conscious Heart Sweater. The Conscious Heart X Mini Tipi Collaboration is extra special because its fabric showcases authentic Indigenous Patterns. You can read more about their brand and all they stand for in Edition 20 | Femme Stories, where they are featured.
Each heart is stitched onto a unisex oversized sweater. Which size you want is dependent on your personal style. I am a size small but prefer a large for that oversized comfy look. To see how this style fits different bodies, check out the Conscious Heart Sweater Blog Post.
