introducing: light as a feather


I am so happy to finally share images of the silk scarves that I have been hinting at and wringing my hands over for quite a while now. I hope you like them!


This line consists of large, 100% silk scarves with luxurious hand-rolled hems featuring blown-up versions of photographs taken in the late 1800s. They are all black and white, and when folded or worn produce an abstract texture that I really like, personally. The silk is quite lustrous and drapes beautifully. You could hang them on the wall if you wanted to, of course.





There are four of them in total: a mountain (Mount Sir Donald in British Columbia), an ice cave, a meteor in the constellation of Orion, and statues in the Gallery of Ancient Statues in Naples, with Venus of Gallipede in the foreground.



I asked Anja if she would be willing to shoot the scarves, because I always love her photoshoots (like “So Long, Marianne,” which was so good!), and luckily Megan was available for styling (she called the look “soft goth Lady Mary”--amazing). I wanted the photos to have a hint of that Pacific Northwest magic that I might not have been able to achieve on my own, and Anja delivered! She threw in a few double exposures, and I just love them. Thanks, Dream Team.

More photos have been posted on Flickr.



The scarves will be available starting on Monday, April 9 in our shop. They will retail for $119, which will include shipping.

And, yes! The name of the collection is inspired by the old levitation trick.

  20. I feel so naive. Every time I see someone create beautiful scarves off of images I feel inspired to make some myself, but where does one get them made? I've researched & sadly came up short - only one place I found online & it was very expensive (not sure I can invest THAT much upfront at this point in time.) Am I missing something obvious? I have wanted to work with photography, patterns & fabric for a long time now (when I was a kid my dad told me I should design sheets!) I would be grateful for any insight.

    1. I'm not sure if this will make you feel any better but there certainly is no obvious or inexpensive answer. I spent months researching, asking about minimums, requesting samples, etc. These scarves were not cheap to produce by any means. I am taking a risk with these items and can only hope people will like them.

    2. Oh, that is certainly alright - I know that it will take a lot of faith & investment on my part. I've done what feels like a lot of research, but I'm willing to do more.

      Thank you for replying & good luck with your endeavor - I think they are beautiful, at least! :)

  24. Your blog is endlessly beautiful. I can't get enough of lusting after your creativity.

    These scarves are divine. I love the recent trend of photography merged with clothing. If I had $119 to spare, you can guess what I'd spend it on! haha

  49. oh they're so gorgeous, anabela (& i don't frequently pull out the word "gorgeous"... but it's necessary on this occasion).

    whenever someone i "know online" releases something wonderful & new that they've created, i always want to buy something. but typically can't afford to buy something. and i always feel like an ass saying - "i wish i had the money to get one". but it is the case! man, if i ever have a surplus of money to spend, i'm going to go crazy buying things made by the wide array of people i've gotten to know through the internet. because that day is OBVIOUSLY going to come (ha - i wish)). and if it does come, i hope you're still making scarves then.
