The Design: "Life in Flight"
In the Ojai Valley, there is a daily phenomenon known locally as the "Pink Moment." As the sun sets at dusk, the Topa Topa mountains to the Northeast become bathed in marvelously muted tones of pink, peach, and red. This fleeting natural alpenglow is at it's most stunning from November thru February, but has been drawing folks to Ojai year-round for generations.
Originally home to the Native Chumash, whose word for "Moon" ("Awha'y") gives the town it's name, the area has been a spiritual and cultural magnet for centuries. The Chumash believed the valley had an unquantifiable mystic energy, while others over the years have espoused evidence (to varying levels of validity) of an electromagnetic vortex generated by the area's plate tectonics. Whatever it is, the pull of Ojai is undeniable, and we're grateful to have been welcomed so warmly into this incredible community.
With colors reminiscent of the "Pink Moment," Daren's bandana design serves as an homage to the magical Ojai Valley, and wearable reminder of nature's most majestic, uplifting phenomena.
