Flow & Kindness Bandana
The Artist: Raee Lorton (Pasadena, CA)
Raee Lorton is a Pasadena based illustrator and the owner/designer of Crag To Crux (C2C), a female focused brand that creates stickers, pins, and apparel inspired by the rock climbing community. Her style is a blend of abstract, nuanced Americana and incorporates elements of vintage pin-up designs to represent strength and femininity.
Combining her artistic prowess with her background in environmental science, Raee aims to use Crag to Crux as a platform to advance the discussion on mental health awareness. By working with non-profits and other climbing brands, she also hopes that C2C can help to create more sustainable climbing products, provide for crag/park restoration, and raise awareness for the protection of climbing landscapes.
With a whopping 334 official votes, Raee's design was the top finisher in our Summer Series design contest in March 2019. We're honored to bring her design to life and to help her advance Crag To Crux.
The Design: "Flow & Kindness"
Inspired by balance in nature, Raee's design incorporates elements of earth and water into a contrasting pattern that looks great no matter how its folded. Though it challenged her signature style of vibrant tones and watercolor, Raee was able to keep true to her thick outlines, line work, and abstract patterns to create a powerful and eye-catching piece.

The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) works to solve the most critical environmental problems facing the planet.
