Go Everywhere and Do Everything in Ivey Abitz

This has been a motto for quite some time for us, and it’s a wonderful thing to see it firsthand in our clients’ lives. Comfort and beauty are relevant for hardworking women.

We’d like all of you to meet a new client that has become quite special to us. A farmer, veterinarian, and artist, Leslie has appreciated Ivey Abitz for years and placed her first order from Summer 2016.

Along with these beautiful photos of Leslie working her farm wearing Ivey Abitz, we received a heartfelt note from Leslie included below.

My Phinneus Coat Dress arrived today. My fingers brushed its material as I pushed aside the tissue paper wrapping. I was immediately compelled to grasp the beautiful and surprisingly soft steel gray bundle without unfolding it and hold it against my cheek, relishing in its coolness. I let the fabric flow over my hands as I unfolded it and gazed upon my very first Ivey Abitz creation…sigh…..I am truly blessed. Thank you.

Thanks to Leslie – and her husband’s photography – for sharing a glimpse of beauty with all of us.

    Dear Leslie,

    You have stepped out of a painting and into my laptop….

    Gorgeous….I know you will enjoy the beauty of IA garments as much as I have.

    Cheers!

    This is certainly a lovely image in the field wearing the gorgeous Phinneus Coat dress. We will want to hear how she washes it as I am sure it will be more frequently than most of us launder our treasured Bespoke. This is a wonderful story. I love to hear about other Ivey Abitz aficionados!

    Thanks, Anne! Wash and wear garments at your own risk. That said, we recommend all natural detergents for our natural weaves. We use Method detergents on all of the bespoke garments we create before they are shipped. Clients especially love the Fresh Air scent we use. For food and dirt stains, we find that Shout works well and does not take out dyes. Clients have used OxiClean with success, though we have not experimented with it in our studio. However you decide to clean the garments, we encourage you to get them dirty and often. The point is to live life in the garments we create for you. So, have fun getting dirty in your IA garments!
