Gifts & Home Update: Colorways for the the Scarf Line September 25 2016
An exciting update to share with you! This scarf is part of a project I’ve been working on for a LONG time (since 2013!). If you've been following along for a while you've heard me mention it over the years. I’ve slowly made strides to release the line but my regular production jewelry line keeps me busy and it's been hard to find time to pull the back end of this collection together. Things like writing copy, taking product photos, editing those product photos, marketing the collection and all the many things that go along with releasing a completely new product are hard to find time for when I am busy producing and filling orders.
The goal of this new product line is to partner with charitable partners that align with my mission: to support families in crisis. After much thought, research and consideration I've chosen to work with some great organizations. Some programs I've already been providing scholarships at and some are brand new.
Here’s the collection details:
1) The collection has three scarf designs that will be released in various colorways. I hand dyed each piece of fabric (cotton & silk) using traditional itajime shibori techniques.
2) I chose each color palette with purpose - all based on symbolism. I created the color recipes myself testing each one several times before making it part of the final collection.
3) Each piece comes with a care card with the meanings & symbolism behind the color choice as well as information on how the pieces support scholarships that align with my mission: to support families in crisis.
4) The collection is part of my upcoming gifts & home line. It’s all coming soon and I’ll be sharing more about it here. The scarves are available in very limited editions & will be released to my email list first. You can get first dibs here: eepurl.com/OD5DL.
