This month we were thrilled to collaborate with a favorite West Coast artist and mother to sweet baby Finn, Katie Gong.

The former Portland, current Cleveland-based artist felt like the perfect fit for our Cherry and Burgundy base layers at almost 9 months pregnant and bursting with potent creative energy.
