Once upon a time, Amy needed some cute hoodies but couldn’t afford to buy new ones. She pulled old ones from her closet, uncovered the inherited sewing machine that she barely even knew how to thread, and freshened up the pieces with some cute designs and fabric scraps. To make a long story short, people liked her embellished, ‘new’ hoodies and asked for some of their own. After making more and giving them as Christmas gifts, she added a PayPal link on her personal blog and offered to sell some to anyone interested. They sold out. Shocked, she made more. Those sold out. Then more. Before anyone really knew what was happening, the living room was overrun with fabric and piles of hoodies, friends were jumping in to help cut fabric or pack up sold items, and the garage became a shipping center. We’ve come a long way, baby! From those early Evy’s Tree handmade designs (such as The Rainbow pictured below) on American Apparel hoodies, to the amazingly soft, made-for-ET pieces with unique designs of today, the journey has been long and bumpy, but educational and fulfilling! The new Arden in Light Grey is a nostalgic nod to those early handmade designs that were simple and quirky but somehow managed launched a successful and growing business. We are enormously proud of how far we have come, but even more than that, we are tremendously grateful to the customers who have stuck with us all of these years! Sometimes not able to buy, but always staying around as our virtual (and sometimes becoming actual, ‘physical’ pals or even employees!) friends, you are the core of the Evy’s Tree community and we are deeply appreciative to have you here. You will probably feel that throwback twinge as you wear the Arden, and hopefully you feel as much warmth toward us as we do toward each of you.
Introducing an all-new oversized classic Evy’s Tree hoodie, the Arden in Light Grey. The Arden is fun recognition to the legacy of Evy’s Tree, with raw edge patchwork rainbow stripes on the front in green, blue, pink and yellow printed paisley that is reminiscent of classic handkerchiefs. The Arden features high quality french terry fabric, a comfortable and casual drop shoulder design with double raw hem, mid back seam, hood and contrast stitching. The Arden has deep side seam pockets and a woven zipper pull, making this hoodie classic, comfortable and practical. Wear your Arden from today through next spring, making it your grown-up rainbow hoodie that brings a bit of brightness to your everyday life.
