Cardinal adores prints and celebrates them in a line of vintage-inspired pieces from the imagination of Chelsea Cardinal. A self taught fashion designer, Chelsea began making clothing in her teens and pursued a career in graphic design before launching Cardinal in 2013. Cardinal is devoted to creating beautiful heirloomesque pieces worth cherishing. We believe in thoughtfulness, not taking our good fortune for granted and treasuring the things we have.
Our collections grow from the prints and many of them are hand-painted directly on the garments in very small runs, so they are indeed wearable pieces of art. Cardinal is designed and produced in New York City.
