The Paloma Duster Cardigan has long been one of our bestselling styles — and it just keeps getting better. A true one-of-a-kind, the latest iterations of this Faherty favorite are crafted from 100% organic cotton for a cozy-but-lightweight feel that’s perfect 365 days a year.
We designed the Paloma for maximum versatility: long and open, with a removable belt for easy layering. Helene D. left a sport-on review we love:
“You can easily dress it up (think tight jeans, high heel boots, and a silk top) or down (think elegant WFH bathrobe!).”
In the past, the patterns of our Palomas were inspired by Native art and weavings, and so we donated 10% of their sales to organizations benefitting the Native community. However, moving forward, we’re committing to ensuring that all new patterns are created in partnership with Native designers.
Our first major Native collaboration was launched with Bethany Yellowtail, an LA-based fashion designer originally from the Crow Nation, and an enrolled member of the Northern Cheyenne Nation in southeastern Montana.
The B.Yellowtail Paloma Duster features designs inspired by traditional Northern Cheyenne motifs: dragonflies to signify blessings and abundance; the red road as a path of wellness; the lodge, or source of life; and the cross — knowing your place on the earth, and being able to find your way back home.
The design and their meanings are inspired by Bethany’s personal tribal heritage and upbringing — in her own words:
“My intention is that whoever wears this robe walks out into the world as a visible manifestation of the love, care, and the future we wish for our people." — Bethany Yellowtail
Doug (who is from the Standing Rock Lakota and Dakota Nation) is the founder of the Lakota Way Healing Center, which offers indigenous spiritual practices to anyone in need of healing.
"When I wear this sweater, I think of the Native activists and spiritual leaders who have taught me so much; it fills me with joy and inspiration." — Kerry Docherty, Co-Founder and Chief Impact Officer
