There’s something amazing about our scarf…

pink-green-cowl-scarfThere’s something amazing about our pink and green cowl scarf…it has a story. 

It was Saturday, October 29th, when we met Joede of Black Pearl Creations. We were neighbors at an event. As she was purchasing some of our skin care products, she shared a story with us. A story about her tenacity. A story about her greater appreciation for life. Because eight years ago, she received a grave diagnosis. She was diagnosed with aggressive Stage 3 breast cancer and her situation was dire. 

But now, eight years since that diagnosis, she continues to defy the odds. We recall some of our words to her that day and we repeat it for her and for everyone…”You go girl!” Your passion to continue to live, laugh, and love every moment of life is an inspiration.

We chose this scarf with purpose…it intertwined the colors green that reflects our logo and pink, a symbolic color for breast cancer awareness. Thank you for creating such beautiful work. It was our pleasure to meet you and we look forward to keeping in touch.

 

We Partnered with the Museum of the City of New York!

We partnered with the Museum of the City of New York for a vendor showcase on Friday, August 19th!
