Bee is for Bowers

This blog was created to showcase the work of Joshua and Alyssa Bowers. We will be posting information and photos about our clothing company, Acanthus Apparel, Alyssa's boutique, Vitae Design Collective, and photos of Joshua's artwork, tattoos and tattoo machines. We might even throw in a few chihuahua photos every now and then.

If you are interested in purchasing any of the items you see on the blog then visit www.acanthusapparel.etsy.com and www.joshuabowers.com.

Two new women’s items up on Etsy. A long sleeve pullover with floral sleeves featuring our birdhouse design and a women’s hoodie with the skull and rose design. These hoodies are just like the unisex rocky Eco-fleece hoodies I normally print on but fitted for a woman. #acanthusapparel #fw14 #etsy
