Introducing the Limited Edition 'Forget Me Not' Dungarees.
This beautiful floral design in shades of blue and violet featuring the Forget Me Not flower - which is the Alzheimer's Societies official flower - has been designed by one of our lovely and long time customers, Jen Taylor. Jen chose forget-me-nots for her design to honour her wonderful dad, who has been diagnosed and is living with Dementia.
The artist and the story behind:
I’m Jen and I am a local Brighton-based illustrator.
I created this design for one reason, my Dad, Jim. In 2016, aged 67, he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, and our lives haven’t been the same since. His decline has been far more rapid than we were ready for, and lockdown especially has hit him hard. Our once bubbly, funny, life and soul of the party Dad is now quiet, withdrawn, and just not the same. In June 2020, we had to make the heart-breaking decision to move him into a home. As the forget-me-not flower is a prominent symbol for Dementia and many dementia charities, and so I wanted to create something for those who have had friends and family members live with Dementia, but also to celebrate the amazing work done by these charities.
All of my personal profit has been donated to the Alzheimer’s Society, a cause very close to my heart.
So, these are for my dad, Jim, my hero.
They're our classic, unisex dungaree cut - a generous fit with signature adjustable tie straps, 3 front pockets, roomy hips and a tapered leg, perfect for rolling up for a slouchy look.
These come in our UK graded structure, but all equivalents are still the same as our previous sizes - see diagram in images - pop us a message if you have any questions!
Two leg lengths, "R" (Regular) and "L" (Long) which has two inches extra for those taller among us! (The bib is the same length on both.)
Printed on a wonderful mid-weight Organic Cotton twill with 2% elastane - the stretch is now back in all our patterned and Limited Edition dungarees going forward, based on your feedback!
Digitally printed with Oeko-Tex certified low impact dyes and made by Ismail and the Team in Northern India.
