where are you from?
How long have you been in Venice?
How did you come to make your scarves?
I had a female scarf that I found during occupy Venice in windward circle that I really liked and it was huge, but it didn’t have the same character as the ones I had been making or texture, it was too square. I headed to Fabric Planet and saw my good friend Jordan Shifman, she let me use the machines in back and select from her private stock and off I went.
What is the philosophy of the scarves?
The philosophy is a multi-purpose garment, which stems from me living in 16 places in 10 years. I was always traveling, on the move, and doing something different everyday and I never could find a scarf or wrap that worked well in these varying environs. I wanted to make something for both men and women that was much more than just a scarf, it can be used as a blanket, sarong, pashimana, head wrap, or even to carry groceries.
What is your personal philosophy?
Consistency and details.
What inspires you?
Spirit. That I am living my life and sharing my joy and creations with everyone I can.
What is your message?
You don’t have to be accountable to anyone for the change happening within you. It’s your life, your journey, the purpose you feel and the destination that you feel you’re going to that will inevitable change, it’s yours and you don’t have to worry about what anyone else thinks about it.
