secret lentil is

improvisationally sewn body-friendly eccentric clothing — hand made, one at a time, by me in my studio in upstate New York.

Comfort + Weird = Good. I believe in pairing comfort with weirdness. In equal measure. Trust me, it's a winning formula that makes every day a little bit better. 

I embrace the sensibilities of a wabi-sabi aesthetic. I find satisfaction in unearthing the inherent (authentic) raw nature of these things as I make them. Perfection is boring. I want my designs to breathe — to have as much air as they do earth. Plus: I like to laugh. Quite loudly. I'm not afraid to make shit funny. When I combine all this and get the balance just right I turn fabric into outfits that propel us bravely out into this flawed world and help us thrive in the ways that matter: in solidness, in connectedness, in curiosity and levity, in joy and awe. Thanks for joining me. — helen
