hand-woven scarf by christy berry



When I found out that my seamstress Christy knew how to weave, I asked her if she'd be interested in designing and making some scarves for the Wiksten fall collection. I showed her my sketches and fabric swatches, and she bought mustard and white cotton yarn to complement my pieces. Together we chose a traditional floral pattern, and I think the scarves turned out incredibly lovely. They represent such a unique take on the scarf trend in my opinion.

This is beautiful! It's funny -- I was just saying the other day that my post-baby weight loss goal is to fit into something Wiksten. I think a scarf would be cheating!
