We’ve been loving on DittoHouse for a couple of years now – so much so that we invited them to exhibit at last year’s Milk Stand popup at ICFF. DittoHouse designer Molly Fitzpatrick has such a way with graphic patterns and bold color palettes making each blanket throw and pillow cover one you immediately want to cozy up to. The brand’s latest offerings, the Rise Collection, is no exception and this time there’s a beautiful message behind it.
The world seems to be aware of the turbulent political times that have overtaken the United States and steadily there’s been a growing resistance aiming to outshine the negativity and hate. Fitzpatrick was one of many disappointed and overwhelmed by the aftermath of the new president elected in November 2016 and instead of sitting back, she got to work. The Rise Collection of throw blankets and pillow covers was born out of hope for better times and “a world filled with justice and love.”
Not just wishing for better times, DittoHouse is doing something really amazing – they’re donating 100% of their sales profits from the Rise Collection from March 1-8 to the Dream Corps’ #LoveArmy, whose goal is to fight hate with love and power.
As with all DittoHouse knits, the Organize, New Day, and Rise throws, and Onward, Upward, and Harmony pillow covers are knit in America with 80% recycled cotton yarn that’s made from pre- and post-consumer textile waste.
