Designer Spotlight: A Peace Treaty

This story of scarves begin with two girls, Farah Malik and Dana Arbib, who made a pact with one another to help provide employment to struggling artisans living in areas of socio-political animosity. The result is a luxurious line of handmade scarves dubbed A Peace Treaty.

For their Spring '09 collection, the duo traveled to Central Asia and recruited local town artisans to create a unique collection of hand-loomed and dip-dyed scarves. The technique used to create the line is intricate and time consuming. This scarf took a total of eight hours to make by a Pakistani woodblock printer! Prices range from $26 to $110; kinda pricey, but you'll know your money is going to a good place.
