RosMari, sorry for leaving you out of this post, I'll write about your designs on another blog post

Mongs - Threadbanger is awesome, I don't check it out enough, but should. Thanks for the reminder!

I'm glad to see it's becoming more mainstream. I for one would like to see more people getting creative and avoiding buying clothes (and other things) that were made in China. It's completely jacking up our economy.
