Kintsugi - Unisex Tee
We are honored to officially announce our Charlie Day design ..
The 400+ year old Japanese art of kintsugi (golden repair) or kintsukuroi (golden joinery) is a pottery repair method that honors the artifact’s unique history by emphasizing, not hiding, the break.
Kintsugi takes broken pieces of a whole & mends them together so beautifully that the scars are honored.
Dogs have a unique ability to mend a broken heart. Taking the pieces & carefully walking us through the process of healing.
We feel certain that each human reading this post is nodding in agreement ..
We've created a distressed heart design pieced together with Charlie's paw prints to signify the role that dogs have in our healing.
Printed left of center on the chest in a gorgeous red & gold.
Featured here is my long time friend, @fhmetzler & his dog, Tiger Lily.
Tiger Lily helped him heal after losing his Skylar.
When you listen to Fred tell the story, with tears in his eyes, he is certain that Skylar waited for Tiger Lily to come along to pass the torch before she passed on.
As dog people, this design & truth resonates for us all. I'm so honored to bring my history in Japan into the brand in such a profound way.
