Why Bring Me Flowers When I Am Dead? When You Had The Time To Do It When I Was Alive

VOL.3 Zine

Is the title of my working photographic series where I make trips to the Downtown LA Flower Mart once a week. I select different combinations of flora for an arrangement of flowers for my home and for the home of my grandmother. Then I take pictures of the flowers in my home and I take a bouquet of flowers over to her house . The zine contains pictures of the bouquets that I give my grandma combined with poetry, sayings, and quotes from my grandmothers story that expresses the love and relationship we share. The layout is designed to take you through layers of paper that accent colors of the floral imagery with different sizes, shapes, translucency, and little texture surprises that pop off the white paper.

FAQ

What is a tabi?

The tabi is a style of footwear with a split toe that dates back to 15th Century Japan when it was originally designed as a split-toe cotton sock to be worn with geta, or wooden sandals. Our tabi is an eco-friendly take on a time-honored classic, with all the comfort and style of a modern shoe.

Do I have to wear socks with my tabi?

We designed our tabi sneakers so that they could be worn barefoot. Our insole and lining materials have anti-microbial properties, and the insole is removable so you can throw the shoe (minus insole) into the wash to freshen them up. For those of you that cannot go without socks, we make those!

How do I take care of my tabis?

It’s super easy - just throw 'em in the washing machine! We made sure that the insole is removable and hand washable as a first line of defense when it's time to clean your tabis. After you’ve removed your insole, place your whole shoe in the wash - treat it like a sweater. Wash on delicate cycle in cold water. We recommend a gentle detergent and tumble dry on low or air dry in a warm, sunny place.

What are your tabis made out of?

The vegan tabis are either knit from recycled water bottles or polyester and elastic. The silk tabis are made with a blend of recycled polyester, viscose, and silk yarn. All of our tabis are 3d-knit.

Shipping

Returns or exchanges are accepted within 30 days of delivery in a like-new, unworn condition. Please try on your tabis indoors on smooth clean surfaces.
