I love Ryann. I really do.
I love the line because the designer loves what she does. So says her site:
“I began Ryann in the summer of 2005, with the idea to use fashion as a platform for environmental and social issues. I was not a scientist, but could use what I knew and loved to help make a difference and get a conversation going with issues that were so important to me. I wanted Ryann to be an example of a business run with love, creativity, responsibility and integrity that would hopefully inspire others to do the same. Ryann is an investment in yourself, your community, and the planet as a whole. That is one trend we can believe in.”
Raina Blyer, designer and founder of I Love Ryann has graciously donated her Farragut Top for this week’s giveaway. Soft bamboo/organic cotton jersey guarantees you’ll be feeling sustainable love in this.
What does Farragut mean? Not sure, but when Googled, I came across a few ideas:
1. David Glasgow Farragut (July 5, 1801 – August 14, 1870) was a flag officer of the United States Navy during the American Civil War. Farragut was made famous for his order at the Battle of Mobile Bay, usually paraphrased: “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!”
2. Farragut, Tennesee, suburb of Knoxville and once home of, you guessed it, David Farragut.
3. Starship Farragut, one of the many homes to Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek legacy with his first Crew Log release, “A Rock and a Hard Place.”
Who knew one top could inspire such range? We’ll consult with the designer and get the answer regarding inspiration when we announce the winner.
Although shown in a lovely hue of blue, this top is offered in forest green or black.
