Trunk Show // Rachel Sherman of Malagueta.

Join us Saturday, August 19th from 10 - 5 PM as we host Rachel Sherman, the artist behind Malagueta. You've seen her colorful, handcrafted pillow shams in our shop and we're excited to bring her collection of clothing to KōT for this one-day event. 

More about Rachel:

After receiving her BFA in Textile Design from Moore College, Rachel Sherman traded in her east coast lifestyle for a stint in Seattle. It was there, in 2002, that she launched her label “Malagueta”, based on improvised surface manipulation techniques such as applique, couching, shirring, top-stitching, ruching, embroidery, piecing, and pin-tucking. Her inspiration: foliage, architecture, fruits, vegetables, insects, and machinery. 

Malagueta, in Portuguese, is know as a tiny, hot red pepper that grows in Brazil, where her mother was born and where Rachel has visited & sought inspiration throughout her life. Her lively interpretations of color, pattern, texture, and shape pay homage to her passion for nature, world cultures, and the female body.  Her vibrant, modern and easy to wear clothing first found their way into independent boutiques in Seattle, then down the west coast to Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles, then east to Tucson,  Miami, Nashville, DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, NYC, and Boston, where funky and feminine were embraced by a diverse clientele.

Presently, based in Philadelphia, Rachel has reestablished herself on the handmade scene through a variety of craft and indie shows such as Crafty Bastards (DC & Nashville TN), Handmade Arcade (Pittsburgh, PA), Crafty Wonderland (Portland, OR), Urban Craft Uprising (Seattle, WA), American Craft Council Shows (Baltmore, MD), PMA Contemporary Craft Show (Philadelphia,  PA), and a variety of others.

We hope to see you there!
