I've been patching and embroidering these vintage Levi 501's of my old boyfriend for past 12+ years. I began selling My Dear Tejas on the road in September 2017. Having been a clothing store owner for 30+ years, I have a closet full of beautiful clothes, but I wanted to create a "uniform" for me so that it would be simple for packing and working at my trunk shows and events. The pieces I chose for my "uniform" are a couple of indigo shirts which my dear and gifted sister Christina Kim, the designer of Dosa, had given my son, Toby, a few years back. He had grown out of them and left them at home before he left for boarding school in September 2017. When I wear Dosa indigo shirts and Levi's, I am carrying my heart for what is dear to my heart - my love for my family and their constant love and support for me. I have named these Levi's, Therapy Pants. The past 10 years have not been the easiest in many ways - moving businesses, moving homes, love found, love lost, etc. - but I am so grateful that there is always hope and love. With each stitch, I think of love, hope, perseverance, pain, laughter, beauty, nature, friendship, etc. and I find happiness and calmness. I have been reluctant to share the personal reasons why I began the intense stitching, but I feel I am now ready to share and am happy that I will be giving a Therapy Pants Mending Workshop at Carter & Co. in Saint Helena, CA Sunday, September 29, 2019.
