Behind the scarves...
I am captivated by the eccentricities I discover in the rich history of textiles, especially vintage print design. Seeing an opportunity to breathe new life into this sensibility for the socially responsible consumer, I have partnered with a rare, ethically produced source of organic ahimsa silk to create a line of luxurious wearable art pieces.
Each and every scarf is its own passion project, requiring numerous hours of ideation, painting, and editing to bring the unique designs to life. Digital methods are used only to support hand executed techniques, and the values of quality and integrity inform every step of the scarves’ sustainable crafting.
I hope each one will become an heirloom that will be treasured not only for its visible beauty, but also for the beauty of how it is made.
