The Mitchell Men aka The Six
The Six are the sons of Edward and Mattie Mitchell of Wadmalaw Island, SC. These 6 boys shared one room for most of their lives which forged an indescribable bond. This bond would lead them to follow similar paths when it came down to schools attended, professions selected, businesses started, and even fraternities joined. This bond was fortified by a combination of powerful philosophies taught by their parents. The brand incorporates aspects of Gullah Geechee spirituality as well as aspects of Gullah Geechee folklore and mysticism. The brand's logo is the Palmetto Rose which is a symbol of love and protection in the Gullah Geechee community. The brand's first collection "The Blood Moon Collection" which focused on one of the signs of redemption (The Blood Moon) for the Gullah Geechee people has since sold out. The brand now presents the Haint Blue Collection, which is a color found all through Gullah Geechee communities but its meaning has been diluted by mainstream aesthetics. The Haint Blue Collection is the reclamation of "haint" as a word only found in Gullah and the collection serves as a means of spiritual protection for everyone who adorns the pieces.
