INSPIRATION: MAIZE

Gold, black, and white. It’s an unexpected combination that highlights the essential nature of gold: warm, subtle, and illuminating. Shades of gold create nuance where black and white offer absolutes. This alluring color of sunset, honey, petals, and fresh butter carries a softness that is magnified in the company of stark contrast.

Maize is the color of harvest and it represents bounty. It feels at home juxtaposed against the color of dark, rich soil.

Mayan elders refer to maize as la santa gracia – the sacred grace.

Together, these colors are –
a yellowed photograph, a saved piece of paper;
field grass, shadowed as the rising sun passes above;
salt, pepper, and flour;
candlelight, wax, and shadows.

Maize is featured as an accent to many of our Black and Natural garments, including those printed with our faded Edison stripes and the Big Dipper stars. Shop the color story here.
