What's in a name?
I name things, it's this wierd quirk I have. I have names for a multitude of businesses I will never own, books I will never write and children I will never have. the name Relish has been in my mind for ages, it is a from a special chapter in a favorite book, Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury. It is the word picked by the main character to capture the essence of summer - the sites, smells, sounds and magic all packed together, sweet and salty to be taken out at a later time and savored. That is what I want for the clothing I make, for memories to be made in them, for them to really be worn, and for them to be put away to one day remind someone of the special, salty-sweet, magical, memories they relish.
