Introducing the Hooded Bolero!

Do you have one of our soft, comfortable boleros (or shrugs, as many people call them)? Have you ever found yourself saying “Wow, the only way this could be better is if it had a hood?” Well friends, we have good news for you…Hooded Bolero © 2018 Sakkara Clothing & Costume

That’s right! Pre-orders are open now for the Hooded Bolero. It’s made of the same soft but sturdy bamboo/organic cotton fabric as our regular bolero, with the addition of a deep hood. Currently available in sizes XS-3XL!

Benefits of a Hooded Bolero

-Perfect for those Pacific Northwest days when the weather can’t decide whether it wants to be cold or warm.

-For those of you living in hot climates, a nice layer for “winter” weather.

-Layer over your belly dance cover-up to hide your hair garden until it’s time to go onstage.

-Cute addition to “urban fusion” style belly dance costumes — get the look of a hoodie while still baring your belly to show off those isolations!

-Keep your arms and head warm in cold dance studios over the winter.

-Deep hood is great for channeling your inner Sith Lord.

Best of all, since it’s currently available on the website, you can order online rather than waiting until the next time you see us at a festival! Not only that, but you can use code PREORDERLOVE to receive free shipping, with no minimum purchase. These hooded boleros will start shipping on October 5th, which means you could even make them a part of your Halloween costume.

On a Completely Different Note…

Before you head off and order your own hooded bolero, we also wanted to remind you that we will be at Hexenfest! This is one of our favorite fall events. it is happening in beautiful Geyserville, CA, September 27-30.

Flame & Ocean

Teal and orange make interesting friends, don’t you think? 🙂

After a fantastic event like JamBallahNW wraps up, the best place for a designer to go (mentally) is a mood board. Every designer/artist has their creative process, and for me sometimes it is to create colorful fantasy lands that I’d love to live in.

I look for vivid, impactful images in colors that don’t represent the palate of what you might have seen in the #Sakkara booth, and then I happily geek out by arranging them just so. The benefit to playing with different color combos, and imagining life in the Flame & Ocean world, is that sparks will ignite towards new designs.
