The Dewberry hotel has launched a product line so their guests can bring the hotel experience back home. The collection features five items ranging from artwork to tea.

The Dewberry Charleston’s “LOVE” Print
Taken at dawn on April 2, 2020, this print displays the exterior of The Dewberry Charleston emblazoned with the word LOVE to serve as a message of positivity for the Charleston community. After many requests to purchase the print made directly with the hotel team, The Dewberry is now retailing the print on its newly launched website with proceeds directly benefiting Pay It Forward Charleston and the Southern Eagle Distributing Hospitality Workers Fund.

The Dewberry Signature Candle
The Dewberry’s signature scent is inspired by the South’s native Dewberry plant and is a blench of Virginia Cedar, Bulgarian Rose, and French Myrrh with accented notes of Tobacco, Black Pepper, Cardamom, and a delicate Sandalwood finish. The fragrance has notes of full-bodied berries, coastal botanicals and woodsy spice to create an aura of warmth and relaxation. Currently, the scent is used in the in-room bath amenities (lotion, shampoo, conditioner) as well as retailed through the hotel as a candle and lotion.
Price: $45

Dewberry Playing Cards
Enjoy the Dewberry’s traditional 52-card deck, which features a unique graphic depiction of the hotel’s front facade – the renovated former L. Mendel Rivers federal building.

The Dewberry Organic Loose Leaf Tea
Served as the hotel’s signature welcome beverage upon check-in, the signature tea blend is caffeine-free and can be served hot or cold. The tea is a bright, organic blend of earthy undertones perfectly balanced with sweet, juicy berries, hibiscus, and rose hips.
Price: $20

The Dewberry Robe
Made exclusively for The Dewberry by Liddell Ireland, the luxurious bathrobe of 100% Turkish Cotton. The robe is crisp white with a signature grey trim.

FullSizeRender (68)While in India, Erin Hilleary learned the technique of painting with French dyes on hand-woven Varanasi silk. She was inspired to begin this practice when she witnessed a woman taking her art of the wall and wrapping it around herself. Erin fell in love with the idea of making art that is flat also be three dimensional. These compositions can be hung like traditional art, but also taken down and worn for special occasions. Erin says that she wanted to “create art that includes its owner as part of its composition”. What truly inspires her when it comes to the compositions of her “wearable art” is the idea of the combination of divinity and spirituality; Erin uses her practice of yoga and meditation to add meaning and depth to her artwork.

One of her favorite pieces is one that she thought was a mistake at first. It looks as if it is a tree woman that is giving up to nature. When she first started working on this piece, seeing that Erin paints mostly freehand, the dye wasn’t cooperating and went everywhere. After putting it away and not looking at it for a year, she took it out and noticed the figure of a woman within the brown dye. Erin feels like this particular work shows how people should submit to life while feeling the most overwhelmed. This is the same feeling she has with her work from the moment she moved to the Lowcountry. The south and the beach-life aesthetic can now be seen in her painting as she lets each painting unfurl naturally from the influence of her surroundings. At her booth for the Spoleto art festival, she’ll be showing some special pieces that represent the city of Charleston with a special emphasis on the Battery. The angel trees were a true inspiration that represents Erin’s respect for the connection between the earth and the sky and the energy that moves through each person. Each of her pieces, whether simple or really elaborate, has a story that connects to the Erin, the world, and the owner who is lucky enough to acquire it.

The care for each of these exquisite pieces of art is simpler than anyone would have thought. Due to the fact that the dye is steamed set for over three hours means that the dye is actually part of the silk. This means that it can be washed, dried, and ironed just like any other silk garment. The only difference is when hanging to present as art, make sure there is something between the silk and the clip and the wall behind the silk. Also, making sure that it isn’t in direct sunlight so that the fabric won’t fade over time.
