Add a Little Soul to your Threads
Wintertime in New England places us in a sea of black, brown, grey and navy winter coats. Sure, what's underneath is likely a killer outfit that may or may not have taken a few changes - but nonetheless, our outerwear leaves us feeling and looking just like everyone else in the sea. For the men and women who like to stand out (either just a little, or like its your job), Doreen Breen of Soul Threads is the textile goddess changing the game. When customers walk in the door, they wander and explore through the tables of handmade jewelry and unique accessories. But once they reach the clothing and outerwear racks, it’s the pieces made by Doreen that are the true showstoppers. Soul Thread's pieces are for the trend breakers who will find their (winter coat) match for seasons to come.
Wool coats with vintage trim and and spun woolen details often catch the eyes of shoppers coming in to find a one of a kind piece to accent their wardrobe. For the month of December, we will be celebrating Doreen as Workspace Collective's "Designer of the Month" and showcasing all of her beautiful work, from her Soul Coats, to her best selling Raggle Taggles.
If you know Doreen, she is a beautiful spirit, a youthful soul and a loving person blessing everyone she meets with her true self that will make you want to be a better person. If you have one of her coats, I hope you feel the energy of her work in the coat you wear. If you have not met Doreen, please come visit her at the shop, check out her work and see if a Soul Coat or a Raggle Taggle is what you need in your wardrobe. I'll leave you with a story from Doreen herself, and visit her at Workspace Collective on 12/16 while she talks about upcycling, and 12/19 at the workbench.
