A Peace Treaty Spring ’09

We just thought we’d featured some new looks from one of our favorite accessory brands, A Peace Treaty, specializing in hand-crafted scarves. I swear by scarves no matter the season and these colorful designs are just what I was looking for. The brand is slowly but surely making a name for themselves and I have to admit, I’ve always appreciated their story – besties Dana Arbib and Farah Malik created their brand as a symbol of their friendship as a Libyan Jew and a Pakistani Muslim; they also employ craftspeople from these regions promoting humane initiatives.  They will present 3 collections for spring ’09:

Kilim “Like the traditional carpets that inspired them, Kilim scarves each take up to eight hours to craft. Motifs are first carved on woodblocks and then used to layer dyes onto fabrics.”

Niani “Handspun and hand-loomed sheer khaadi silk scarves are also dip dyed by hand allowing each piece to take on the entire color wheel and reinterpret tone and blend”

Gossypium “An ode to the boyfriend jean.This denim inspired line gets more comfortable with constant wear.”
A Peace Treaty scarves average anywhere between $75 to $100 each but are well worth the investment. You can probably tell they are stand out pieces in their own right and would make a great addition to a neutral outfit in need of a punch.
