Rachel Berger is a designer in California. Lately, she’s been into current events, reading and writing, architecture, technology, cities, politics, identity, and fiber.



In the 1850s, office workers couldn’t afford to launder their shirts, so they covered them with dickeys. Today’s office workers still can’t afford to launder their shirts. And they don’t go to offices anymore. Or anywhere, really. In the 2020s, work-from-home workers need just enough workwear to make their Zoom parts presentable.

Vicky is a modern dickey for the virtual workforce. Ample, yet efficient, Vicky is a sumptuous hand-knit sweaterlet that covers exactly what needs to be covered, no more or less.
