The holiday season can be the most wonderful, and stressful, time of year. Maybe a Christmas sweater coloring book is the perfect prescription.
MINNEAPOLIS (PRWEB) November 15, 2018
Ragstock, the new and vintage clothing retailer, has released the Ragstock Christmas Sweater Coloring Book. It’s the first coloring book inspired by real vintage Christmas sweaters, and it’s for a good cause—all proceeds will be donated to Toys for Tots.
The book contains 38 pages of holiday cheer, with illustrative elements that will be familiar to anyone who’s attended an ugly sweater party. Santa Claus, snowmen, reindeer, and coniferous trees all make multiple appearances. Half the illustrations stay true to the original sweater designs. The other half take creative liberties, sometimes merging multiple sweaters together to create an entirely new design. Ragstock is serious about their source material, so the back of the book includes pictures of all the original sweaters.
Coloring books have become increasingly popular in recent years, with fans claiming that coloring can be an effective way to reduce stress and anxiety. The medical community agrees—studies have shown that there’s something soothing about staying within the lines.
“The holiday season can be the most wonderful, and stressful, time of year. Maybe a Christmas sweater coloring book is the perfect prescription,” says Libby Finn, President of Ragstock.
Ragstock, based in Minneapolis with stores across the Midwest and beyond, launched the “Ugly Sweater” retail movement over a decade ago and continues to lead the category in innovation. The company employs dozens of vintage clothing purchasers around the globe, canvassing for dated but well-kept holiday sweaters year-round. If you’re looking to acquire your own sweater, you can visit one of their 38 locations or choose from over 10,000 vintage ugly Christmas sweaters at Ragstock.com
“We felt uniquely qualified to make a book about ugly Christmas sweaters,” Finn laughs. “We’re always looking for ways to make the holidays more fun. Hopefully, we can brighten someone's day.”
