Limited-edition collaborative bandana available now for Spring 2024

PORTLAND, OREGON (January, 2024) /SPORTSWIRE WOMEN/Dovetail Workwear – the largest exclusively women’s workwear brand in the northern hemisphere – is elated to announce internationally recognized illustrator, author, activist, and avid cyclist Lisa Congdon as its newest Maven ambassador. Congdon’s colorful, graphic illustrations have graced art exhibits, murals, books, and products across the globe since establishing her self-taught artistic career while entering her 40s. Her successes only continued to rise with her art shown in the Obama campaign, The Museum of Modern Art, Google, Harvard University, and dozens of notable brands. Currently residing in Portland, Oregon, Congdon is also the author of 10 published books, co-founder of The Long Table Collective mentoring program for emerging underrepresented diverse creatives, an influential leader in social justice, and a medaled competitive cyclist.

Her joyful, iconic style is now launching with a Lisa Congdon x Dovetail Workwear limited edition bandana for Spring 2024. Highlighting natural and maker motifs and manufactured by women-run Ladybug Creations, the collaborative bandana can be tucked into a pocket for studio clean ups or worn around the neck during dusty projects or gravel bike rides. Congdon’s colorful designs bring vibrant inspiration to durable gear designed to fuel confidence and pride across any undertaking, throughout daily adventures. A portion of bandana proceeds will be donated to XCelerate, an Oregon-based nonprofit that supports women and historically marginalized business owners overcome systemic inequalities to grow their businesses and build economic power.

In the studio and around town, Congdon’s favorite Spring 2024 Dovetail Workwear apparel include the Anna Task Pant now in vibrant paprika colorway, the hickory stripe Hi-Rise Pant, and the Freshley Overall in green ripstop (with custom paint splatters.)

The Maven Program celebrates remarkable women who embody the Dovetail spirit. These diverse working women often collaborate closely with Dovetail’s team, dubbed Mavens by the brand, contributing invaluable insights from the studio, farm, factory and beyond to help shape innovative products designed by, for, and with women. In collaboration with the Maven ambassadors, Dovetail may pursue strategic community-based support that directly empowers women’s work.

True to Dovetail Workwear’s mission of equipping women for success, the partnership with Lisa Congdon not only provides women with a fashionable arsenal for their endeavors but also exemplifies the strength of women working together to affect positive change in the world.
