In solidarity with and service to the Black community, we teamed up with artist Alexandra Bowman to co-design Planting Change – a special edition adult and kids apron and face mask collection celebrating and supporting Black Americans in food and farming. Bowman’s artwork is recognized for sparking dialogue for social change and visibility for the underrepresented, which is our collective mission for this initiative. According to Bowman, the illustration portrays a community of Black individuals growing and harvesting crops to sustain themselves and the community, intended to reclaim the narrative of Black Americans’ relationship to land, farming, and food. She uses the True Black color to amplify the beauty of Black bodies, alongside a palette of soft pink, blue, and yellow hues outfitting each individual sowing, planting, and nurturing parts of the land. From afar, the setting resembles a bouquet of flowers.
We are proud to support BCAGlobal and Soul Fire Farm and champion their work in bringing equity, equality, and empowerment to the Black community in restaurants, farms, and more, across the country.
