manifesto

In the days of the witches, when spells were cast and potions brewed, the sorceresses would soak their undergarments in their magic to hold their incantations closest to the most powerful parts of their body. The most intimate layer between you and the world, your underwear, should be imbued with power, magic and love.

Each calyx piece is hand dyed naturally with locally grown color, sewn with fair trade silks and manufactured in NYC. The seasons we run on are nature’s seasons, our prints dictated by the petals she grows. Our cuts are classic and can be customized for all shapes and body types. We are here to love your bits. Calyx is your amulet, your personal armor and your secret strength. The first thing you put on, and the last thing to be taken off. Calyx holds you in.
