DONNA & LOUISE SCARF

The image on this scarf comes from a found vintage photo from my Tessellation series. I search through through thrift stores and antique malls, looking for left-behind images of people and their homes. I am in love with these lost images, they hold a vague ache of unknowable history and untold stories. I imagine that Donna and Louise are sisters and this is the portrait of their first day at new job, or celebrating a holiday.  Wearing a scarf bearing their image gives these women new life and weaves their story in your own.

I've wanted to print my vintage image Tessellations on fabric for a WHILE, but I've always been held up by the ethics of producing fabric. Now I've finally found a way to do it that meets all my ethical criteria, and also produces a kick-ass, high quality design! Each scarf, a reproduction of my original artwork, is printed in the US by Spoonflower using an eco-friendly method which requires no water (an therefore no water pollution) and uses non-toxic, biodegradable inks.

 

Printed on crepe de chine, measuring 24 in x 24 in.

Featuring a hand-rolled hem. Who's hand rolled it? My hand! 

Limited edition of 25.
