these gorgeous models of mine......

I look at these photos and think of the fun we have had over the years shooting Dakini product.  The two women you see regularly featured here are two of my closest friends.  The photographer (that you don't see), I have known for the last 30 years and is one of my oldest friends.  

We have an incredibly silly, tequila fueled time at every shoot.  We have been to many different locations and at each we seem to top the laughter meter of the prior.  

These women make it easy to serve you all.......I wouldn't be here without them.

Cheers to incredible friends ~

It is hard to believe that they are predicting another 10" of snow for the Boston area starting tomorrow.  We are grateful for our warm Dakini in a winter that extends into April.......

We thank all of you for your incredible support and continued passion for the items we manufacture.  Your email submissions sharing your love for Dakini bring meaning to the work we do.


Stay warm, we are almost out of the winter woods.

These pants........

By Katlyn Schultz
on August 25, 2016

They have been our #1 selling item for women for the last 15 years.  Our customers swear by them.  Some wonder why.....

is it the fit?  snug that the waist and hip with a slight flare at the knee

is it the color? black is always best

is it the durability?  they last and last and last and look brand new for years

or, is it the secret? the warm fleece on the inside that keeps you cozy in any chill or cold weather

We think it is a combo.  We wear them from November to April.  We actually live in them here in the North East.  

They are our favorite too.

This Is Us “Working”

By Katlyn Schultz
on October 06, 2015

Photography is so important for a company like Dakini. People need to be able to see colors, textures, and cuts, but we also want to show how your clothes will live. A Dakini photo shoot is often a very long day with a lot of shots taken (and re-taken) to make sure we are meeting very high standards.

So looking at the pictures on dakini.com, you might ask yourself: Are we really having this much fun?

You bet. It is the way we live. We seek fun.

We hope that the photos here and everywhere on our website capture this. 

Photo shoots for Dakini are not just work—they are also a blast. We try to mix a ton of laughter and fun into a process that needs to be serious and have significant results that matter to our company. It is hard. We often get distracted by each other and the laughter.

The team of women and men that make this possible are actually my friends. Yes, I am lucky to have talented and beautiful friends. We have been working together on the photography for Dakini for over 20 years.  

Let me introduce you the team—we are all friends and neighbors in a town just outside of Boston.

 

Our Models

Cari is a 46-year-old South African who transplanted herself to the Boston area after living 23 years in South Africa and 10 years in Southern California. (We often wonder why she left either of those two places!) She worked as a model in her late teens and early 20s. Cari is now the mother of two lovely children aged 15 and 13. Her “other job” is her passion for healing and spiritual growth. She is a trained massage therapist specializing in cranial sacral treatments. Our children landed in the same 5th grade classroom, and we have been close friends ever since.  

Natalie is our little 39-year-old. She was born and raised in Utah and moved to the Boston area with her husband 15 years ago. She and her family (her two adorable children who are also seen on the website) are my neighbors on an incredible property that we often use for photo shoots. She runs her successful landscaping design firm. Natalie is a passionate herbalist and foodie.

Doug is the handsome husband of our dear friend Shah, who allows us to sneak off with him for shoots. In his off hours he is a top-selling real estate agent. He is the fastest runner we know and can scale the largest hill in our town in a single bound.

 

Our Photographer

Wendy has been shooting Dakini since 1995. Wendy and I went to college together in the Boston area. She worked as a professional photographer in New York in the 90s; now she fills her work days with her passion for landscape design and home design and development. Many of the shots on the website are set outside her two exceptional homes that she designed and built. 

 

——-

Show us your Dakini! We get a ton of pictures from happy customers and we love seeing folks out enjoying life and feeling great in Dakini. We decided to create a web gallery, and we’re even going to use it as an excuse to give out some free prizes. Send your shots to coolstuff@dakini.com and we’ll enter you in a drawing.

The New Dakini.com!

Welcome to the Dakini Journal, and the new Dakini.com!

We’ve been making “the clothes you live in” since 1993. A hike, a run, a picnic or barbecue with friends, or just some time at home to recharge for your next adventure - Dakini is ready for anything. Comfortable and confident. Like you.

Our new website is bigger and bolder, and frankly that’s a better fit for who we are and who we serve Hope you love it. We do. It’s easier to discover and shop for our newer designs (stunning Spring skirts, anyone?)  as well as long-time favorites (power stretch tights! Men's 200 Weight Crew Neck!).

And we’ll be adding more information about our designs and fabrics - the best fleece in the world, all-natural and all-awesome merino wool, and more.

But this Journal might turn out to be our favorite part of our new website. Dakini really is about living. It’s not about the clothes as much as it’s about what you do in them. We love to explore. We love to run - even when it’s freezing here in our home state of Massachusetts! So that’s what you’ll find in our Journal: things we discover as we live, as we explore. Things that inspire us to live life to the fullest.

We know it’ll inspire you too. Let’s get going.

 

Love,

Dakini
