G'bye Plastic Prototype Be.annies available at Vibe Palace :
Akiala’s Buy Back the Block initiative is near & dear to Baily Rose:
5 points being the first neighborhood where Rose rooted
herself in Denver living & working,
being displaced & having to move
out of Denver
when weed became legal,
& stories of Nana & Nanu Rose living in an RV
when going to school in Greeley
with Papa Rose as a toddler (in the late 1950s)
because no landlords would rent to their skin tone
(Siciliana & Calabrese).
Honored to be able to be a part of a
cause & culture I care so much about.
EYE LOVE FIVE POINTS
legends never die

knitwear collection Baily Ann Rose has made
since her 4-H Club Daze
collection made after returning to her home state of Colorada,
where she earned her
Master’s in Sustainable Fashion,
writing her thesis on an app idea called the TailorsUnion.com
(sign up if you’re an artisan, please!).
Baily Rose collection that is
UNISEX & ACCESSIBLE
that can be produced to benefit the local community, ecology, and economy regeneratively.
round of prototype beanies Baily designed while teaching herself how to knit on her Mamma’s machine, created from polyester & acrylic yarn gifted by Mamma Rose (yarn was purchased locally over 30 years ago from Aurora Yarn Supply!).
This is the last collection Rose
will engage with synthetics,
due to hormonal disruptions she has personally encountered in production & while wearing synthetics
(notice in this photo, acne on the chin region),
the connection to the oil industry,
& synthetic fibers' inability to biodegrade
(google microplastic pollution).
Rose is saying
to inflicting violence upon the earth
by the use of plastics
This collection is a wholehearted
“Thank you for what you’ve done for us,
Look for Rose’s Soil to Soil pieces
inspired by Fibershed’s regenerative principles.
Say Goodbye with Rose
by purchasing this lifetime investment,
with your money going towards the
Buy Back the Block initiative,
as well as purchasing local & biodegradable yarns for Rose’s next collection!
