SOVRIN – hand printed earthly dark apparel

.SOVRIN.

I knew since I was 13 that being a clothing designer was what I wanted to be. I had gathered throughout my years countless inspiration books filled with doodles, magazine cutouts, and fabric swatches. I started going to fashion school in my last two years of high school, and then later graduated in the Fashion Marketing program in 2010. Since graduation I have continued to follow my dream of design and have taken any part possible within the fashion world.

I think now after those years of dedication, SOVRIN, has brought the perfect balance of design, construction and freedom and has created the exact career I’ve been searching for. I only hope to continue to grow and create even more beautiful pieces that can be enjoyed by myself and anyone who enters my shop.

THE BIO/HOW SOVRIN STARTED:

SOVRIN was started in March 2012. I decided to start printing because I wanted to create unique clothing that I wanted to wear but couldn’t find anywhere else…..as it was hard to find many animal based anatomical clothing. My first design that influenced me to create SOVRIN was the Ram Skull design. I had become infatuated with the idea of a ram skull print, but couldn’t find any prints that didn’t entail some sort of direct reference to the satanic religion. From then on, I continued to create more designs, and eventually move onto leggings….the first of which was the Sword Leggings.

I have to say, I owe all of my printing knowledge to my good friend Saul (www.thebaretree.com). I am forever grateful for his patience and willingness to teach me 🙂 I wouldn’t be in such a great place without you! (if you ever read this, I’m sure you will just shaking your head)

SOMETHING YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT SOVRIN
One thing I haven’t really advertised much yet about SOVRIN is one of my views/morals that I try to support and follow as much as possible: environmentally friendly clothing and supporting the idea of sustainability.

Beyond getting rad printed clothing, know that I do my best to try and make my apparel as ethically and eco friendly as possible. How you ask? Here are a few ways:

1.) I print using water based inks. These inks are the most eco friendly of all. During the curing process of the inks, water is vaporized into the air…..when other types of inks are cured chemicals are vaporized into the air….ick!

2.) Majority of my pieces are USA made, if not made in the USA, they are sweatshop free.

3.) I do my best to only use organic hemp, cotton, and bamboo fabric for my “witching hour line” (though all do not use these organic fabrics)
