Introducing MITOSIS: LOQUAT x SPACE

Given that this is a limited edition run, please list the three colors in order of preference in your donation note. We will strive to get everyone their first or second choice and we will address purchases in the order that they are received.

Check out the new merch!

Loquat’s vision for Mitosis began at the textile level, designing a fabric that both incorporated and dissected SPACE’s 2020 circular logo at the molecular level. The fashion duo, Jordan Carey and Madison Poitrast-Upton, then cut and sewed the accessories collection by hand, creating items in three colors: ocean blue, chartreuse green, and sky pink. While the initial plan was to create two bags and a facial covering, with sustainability in mind, the team used leftover fabric to make a final item: a version of their signature mask. Altogether, the Mitosis collection includes four objects - a handbag ($80), crossbody bag ($40), neck gaiter ($20), and mask ($18) - in three colors made to pop against the somber hues of a Maine winter.

All proceeds from the collection are split 50/50 between Loquat and SPACE. And when you purchase any item, you also receive a free year of SPACE membership. Already a member? Consider this donation a reinvestment in SPACE during our COVID-19 closure. Your funds directly steward SPACE’s digital programming, administration of our project and relief grants, artist stipends, and maintaining our 32 below-market-rate studios for Portland artists.
