dear birthday offers handmade clothing designed and exquisitely constructed by valerie soles who is currently working happily from her apartment in brooklyn, ny. dear birthday loves prints, especially those produced by Liberty of London! however, due to Liberty's overseas-ness (and current lack of organic/sustainable fabric options) valerie and her amazingly talented artist boyfriend ian are beginning a collaborative printing project called valerian which will be printed on organic cotton and featured in the dear birthday collection for fall 2008. we're continually working to nurture our loving bond with our planet and its inhabitants while creating beautiful and unique things with a lighthearted touch.
