Dovetail Workwear and Lisa Congdon Spread Radical Love with New Limited Edition Pride Collection

June 14, 2024

PORTLAND, OREGON (June 14, 2024) /SPORTSWIRE WOMEN/ – Dovetail Workwear, makers of durable and stylish apparel for women, announces a limited edition Pride Collection created in partnership with internationally renowned artist and activist, Lisa Congdon. The vibrant capsule collection celebrates the spirit of radical inclusion in honor & support of our LGBTQ+ community, with the expressive Pride Shop Pant and spirited Pocket Pride Bandana.

Heritage selvedge denim meets the perfect work/street style when crafted into Dovetail’s ultimate do-it-all silhouette, the Shop Pant. Woven on old-school shuttle looms in a perfect red cast denim  with just the right amount of slub and weave character, this authentic workwear made from Cone Mills’ Community collection is a finite run of only 250 pairs. Washed down to perfection and styled with bright rainbow selvedge details at the out seam, coin pocket, and back criss/cross belt loop, this beautiful limited edition Pride Shop Pant allows your true colors to shine through.

“The Pride Shop pant is not about a marketing event in the month of June. It’s about a beautiful partnership of craft material and the real-deal concept of acceptance and equity, expression and creativity, however you want to show it,” said Sara DeLuca, Co-Founder and Director, Product Development at Dovetail Workwear.

Complementing the pants is the Pocket Pride Bandana, distinctly designed by Lisa Congdon with signature bold graphics. The bandana’s energetic colors and illustrations pay homage to the Progress Pride flag, developed in 2018 by non-binary American artist Daniel Quasar, to celebrate diversity and call for a more inclusive society. A portion of the proceeds from bandana sales will be donated to Brave Trails, a summer camp for LGBTQ+ teens.

“With this capsule, we want to foster confidence, community and self-expression,” says Congdon. “The Pride Shop Pant and Pocket Pride Bandana celebrate our community’s unconditional acceptance of radical love – empowering people to bring vibrance and authenticity to work, play, and everyday life.”

Dovetail builds workwear for present and future generations and through that, manifests the future of what job sites and cultural perceptions can embody – inclusivity and empowerment. The Pride Shop Pant is available for purchase now, and the Pocket Pride Bandana for pre-order – with shipping expected in July – at DovetailWorkwear.com.
