We offer weekly studio tours to inspire and educate as part of our mission to make garment manufacturing more transparent.
A language spoken through dress
Rite of Passage inhabits the intersection of art, fashion, and craft.
Born from a friendship between designer and master patternmaker, Giovanni Daina-Palermo, and artist and entrepreneur, Libby O'Bryan, our collections showcase delicate detail and bold patterns.
We envision a thriving domestic textile industry that honors the art and skill of sewing and celebrates the people behind garment production. In our studio in Asheville, NC, we're doing our part to make that vision a reality.
