Product Story

A scarf designed to last, the first thing you will pack for a trip and the final thing you will put on before stepping out. A scarf that is soft and smooth and won’t snare your earrings. A scarf to be passed from one generation to the next. My mother Jessica taught me that scarves were the best fashion hacks and inspired the creation of these pieces. I still have four treasured scarves of my mother’s. Her beloved Hermes scarf is framed and hangs in my daughter’s bedroom.  A great scarf can give you an instant shot of color, lifts the face, and adds miles to a simple wardrobe.

For every Italian silk scarf sale the studio makes, we will contribute one mangrove to the restoration project on Chira Island. You can read more about mangroves, the restoration project, and our partnership with Conservation International here.

Pattern Story

I have started a new series in an uncharacteristic style for me. I tend towards abstraction but shifted to a more representational approach for this particular project. After reading about the global catastrophic decline in avian species last year, I started to sketch and research birds to increase my connection and knowledge. This is the Piping Plover, or Charadrius melodus, whose population was severely reduced over the last century from habitat destruction. Their preferred nesting zones are wide open, sandy shorelines – the same areas preferred for residential and commercial development.

Their population is making a comeback, having recently received “near threatened” status, and subsequently removed from the IUCN Red List. However, there is still a lot of work to be done, especially in the Great Lakes Region.
