The NASA Sweater Has Landed

Rocketing into outer space and floating in zero gravity; my childhood dream to one day become an astronaut.  I dug through some old photos of my early years and used this as inspiration for Granted’s new NASA sweater. It proved a difficult task at first, as there were so many events and icons to draw from throughout the decades. We landed on the now retired “worm” logo, a vivid representation of my growing up in the 80s. It’s playful, it’s fun, it has an astronaut, rockets and retro gradients all vibrantly mixed into a spacey milky way of timeless knitting craft.  The NASA sweater has landed.

NASA Sweater Back

Bodega store and Granted

Paying tribute to the late human rights activist, Malcom X features a shawl collar and frontal zip-up closure, while tribal patterns accent the sleeves, chests and pockets and an iconic portrait takes pride of place on the backside.

The sweaters will be available exclusively only at Bodega, both in-store and online.

Brand Feature: Lichen (Cherryville, BC)

The Lichen story:

Originally from Winnipeg, the designer, Kerri returned to her hometown after she sought after some unestablished roots.  Longing for the home stead life she found a small town off the map.  There she used her jewelery making skills with some local and non-toxic materials and discovered antler. Because there are more deer there than humans, antlers seemed a good match for her. She is truly grateful that there are plenty of these natural materials around.

Each piece is unique, colored perfectly without ever being able to duplicate its perfection. Leaving the unfinished antler pieces to stand naturally on its own, or sometimes adding some bands of color to give it that extra flair.
