As we strive for sustainability and make changes within AmZ to ensure a more green future, this project represents a transition. It is a concept that feels very personal, not only reconnecting us with our roots, but also connecting us all with nature. In honor of the Caron Yarn x Pantone 2019 Color of the Year, Living Coral, we have created a one-of-a-kind, hand-crocheted piece with all the proceeds going to a local charity to save our reefs.
The garment was worked up organically and in sections creating an entirely unique and one-of-a-kind construction and top. Each element represents our favorite design elements from our most popular pieces. It represents how if we all come together to help, even just a tiny bit, we can create something beautiful, but that doesn’t mean it will be “perfect” or “symmetrical.”
*All of the proceeds from this product will be donated to the local Coral Restoration Foundation, locally based in Key Largo, FL. The organization was created as a response to the "wide-spread loss of the dominant coral species on the Florida Reef Tract." They work to actively restore declining coral populations and create guidelines we can all follow to help save our reefs.
