This design was created with your lovely founder in mind. While researching Mary, we were shocked to learn that she attended Colby College in Maine where she was the FIRST woman to be admitted in 1871! To the left is a photo of Mary & the other four founders of Sigma Kappa.

 

 

You can now get this design at Ollie + Ivy printed on a number of items! We love the fun contrast of the graphic background mixed with the feminine floral bouquet. Of course we also included the beautiful Maroon + Lavender colors as well!

We hope you love, Mary Low’s Floral Bouquet!
