The 2016 presidential election catalyzed significant soul searching for many Americans. For Ulla, it meant finding an authentic and beautiful way to voice her values through design. The resulting Solidarity Tee—with the words We Are All Immigrants embroidered on the left chest—is a sustainably-processed, drop-shoulder top with all proceeds donated to the ACLU. In Ulla’s own words, “Our nation is founded on immigration and as such, immigrants’ rights should always and forever be upheld.”
Made of pure linen, the garment’s soft color comes from the skilled hands of artisanal dyer Audrey Louis Reynolds, who is known for her work with natural, vegetarian extracts. “I only use materials that are good for you,” Reynolds says of her unique dyeing process. To obtain the textured rosebud hue that Ulla wanted, she sourced plant-based ingredients, including pale pink flowers, avocado pits, beets, berries and bark.
