Jen Bartel on her COLLABORAID collection: “I wanted to pull from my own personal heritage. Growing up in Korea, it was impossible to avoid imagery of tigers, as they are a greatly revered symbol of strength, wisdom, and resiliency. Despite facing extinction in recent years, tigers used to roam the Korean peninsula for most of recorded history. Recently, they have begun to reappear in the northern mountains—a testament to their perseverance in the face of great adversity. In these uncertain times, my hope is that we’re all able to channel the qualities of the Tiger Soul.”
