rayo & honey combines black popular culture with a clean modern design aesthetic.
My intent is to create goods that not only add adornment to patrons personal spaces but also to craft:
Text that prompts emotion in a work space.
Words that conjure sentiment in a living space.
Phrases that inspires magic in a children’s space.
Bold crisp text reminiscent of pop art motifs while incorporating a modern element, my pennants are each cut, pieced and designed by my hands, in a Brooklyn NY studio, utilizing 100% organic cotton for pennants, black cotton bias tape for hang string, oak for hang rods and laser cut felt for letters.
where are the phrases from?
With rayo & honey, I dip into the crates for iconic hip hop lyrics, Black & Latino pop-culture references, inspirational mantras and wondrous quotes that are motivational to Me.
Each product combines cultural consciousness, subtle hand crafted details, and a mixture of textures.
Black & Latino popular culture is rarely seen in interior home decor.
The affirmations tucked into the frames of mirrors, taped on the inside of cabinet doors and hung on the walls of my childhood home were encouraging but it never felt like they were for me.
Those beautiful accolades did not “speak to me”.
It is my hope that rayo & honey decor will compliment patrons spaces as well as encourage and inspire one to surround themselves with things that speak to our collective past & socially conscious future.
when do pennants ship?
Every pennant I make is a labor of love from my two hands in my Brooklyn studio.
Some pennants are ready to ship while others can take up to 2weeks or longer in during a busy time. Please please please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org me if you would like a pennant ASAP and I’ll let you now when the soonest it can be made and put in the post (USPS 2/3 day priority mail) for you.
how are pennants crafted?
Each pennant is cut from a pattern, a double seam is made by pressing, then sewing, and pressing again. Letters are die cut from felt, laid out, measured, then permanently affixed.
Oak dowels are cut and sanded into hang sticks.
Black cotton twill is measured, cut, and double knotted onto the hang stick.
