womxn’s rites was established in 2016 as a socially responsible business producing loungewear. A portion of all sales have been donated to nonprofits working for womxn’s rights, but that is not enough. Social change requires us to invite critically engaged artists into every sector.  By doing this we are practicing a more complex approach to design and making a living that is rooted in collectivized labor relations.

In 2021 we were introduced to Will Rawls, who was assembling costumes for his performance and installation “Everlasting Stranger” at Henry Art Gallery (link here) in collaboration with Velocity Dance Center. The performers in the exhibition represented characters in the novel, described through movement and contemporary apparel.  A selection of those garments, with style names that correspond to the characters, was produced in a small quantity to be sold exclusively on prairieunderground.com.  

The models featured in the editorial are friends and collaborators photographed by Sierra Stinson in New York 2021.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Okra Project.
