For our next scarf project we have purchased a beautiful floral line drawing and we will identify the flowers in this and add the flower names in Latin calligraphy. Then we start to think about color direction.
It is always a pleasure when I find something truly special. Maneesha Ruia's wraps are exactly that. They remind me of the intricacy of Spanish lace mantillas, only these have a modern take. Her creations combine lace with a soft plain weave woven lambswool and then swarovski crystals are artfully placed on the lace; making for a delicate, yet richly detailed shawl.
Here I am at this past year's Enchanted Forest Holiday Boutique put on by the Junior League of Greenwich, CT. Having the opportunity to get out there and show how to wear scarves and listen to feedback on the designs is the best part of this business.
Very cool! Chosen by NJ Monthly as one of their top 10 picks for virtual holiday shopping.
Our customers mean the world to us :)
I am so honored to have the opportunity to design a scarf with the internationally acclaimed potter and artist Miranda Thomas in support of the worldwide humanitarian efforts of the United Nations Association of New York. The quote chosen for this design is by Eleanor Roosevelt, one of the original founders of the UNA. It reads, " The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." Special thanks goes to Ann Nicol, the Executive Director of the UNA/NY for her vision in bringing about this collaboration in creating a scarf that truly gives back in so many ways. Fascinating to listen to Ban Ki-Moon's words of wisdom, as it is the last year of his tenure as Secretary General of the UNited Nations. The actress Michelle Yeoh and UN Special Envoy for Road Safety Jean Todt gave riveting presentations.
