This quote appeared in Vol 39 no. 5 of Ornament magazine’s article “Handmade Fashion in an American Counterculture” reporting on exhibits of clothing from the 60s & 70’s

“…its clothing and jewelry no longer worn, becoming archival material, but it reflected an Earth-based spirit that was tolerant, kindly and welcoming. Its better nature expressed a sort of mantra deeply woven into the American origin narrative. (my emphasis) We the people are here to form an ever more perfect union, rising above and fixing our flaws, and that noble work is constant and never ends. It was a vigilant, passionate search fifty years ago that continues to this day.”
