$75

The West Virginia Humanities Council sustains and strengthens West Virginias cultural network – the scholars, organizations and institutions that represent it's history, heritage, and living tradition. 

 For over 50 years, they have created, preserved, and shared stories about West Virginia. As a nonpartisan nonprofit and the official state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, they commit 75% of their budget to grant making and direct programming every year for projects throughout the Mountain State. They collaborate with k-12 schools, colleges, universities, historical societies, museums, libraries, and people all over the state to bring the world to West Virginia, and West Virginia to the world.

 They believe that West Virginia–its people, its culture, and its future–is worth investing in. When you support the West Virginia Humanities Council, you help cultivate a generation of well-rounded, informed, and engaged citizens who contribute to the social, economic, and cultural health of their home communities. By supporting their campaign, you can help ensure the preservation and enrichment of West Virginia’s civic, social, and cultural heritage for years to come.

    This collection is inspired by the streets of Savannah, GA. We met the first day of orientation when we attended Savannah College of Art and Design in 2011. Over the next four years we would spend our days exploring the beautiful scenery that Savannah had to offer. As the streets were lined with amazing historic architecture, one thing always stood out to us, the fresh floral scents of the flowers.
    If you ever took a walk in Forsyth Park and passed by the Garden of Fragrance and smelled the amazing scents or walked along Jones Street seeing the flowers as the accessory that made these homes come to life. We would always get lost in the beauty that Savannah had to offer. We wanted to create a collection that reflected our time there. Since we went to SCAD, we became a SCAD Bee for life! We merged the two things that reminded us of how we met and made this beautifully infused and thought out collection come to life. Our hope is that when you wear a piece of the Savannah Collection that you can feel the beauty that can be seen everyday around you.
