Inspired by the natural textures and patterns found in nature, this scarf features photographic detail of the bark of a life tree, snapped in a local Brooklyn park, enlarged so you can see all the beautiful detail, and made it into a large silk scarf.
The strong lines formed by the tree bark, and the faint pinks and greens hiding in some of the crevices, create a piece that is graphic and high contrast, forming the perfect abstract pattern when you wear it.
Theadbare Supply Co. makes the tough, pretty things you want to wear all the time.
We sketch, design, dye, knit, and assemble everything in Brooklyn, NY, under the careful watch of our dog, Oscar. Through small-batch production we can ensure that each piece is special, and that attention can be paid to all the details, making sure you love the pieces until they're threadbare.
Designer Sara Lugo (J. Crew, Club Monaco) finds inspiration in whimsical bedtime stores, the beauty in nature, and the pairing of feminine textures with bits and pieces borrowed from the boys.
"To the extent “Brooklyn” now designates more than a mere landmass, it means: small-batch production, urban husbandry, period facial hair, a fixed-gear bicycle, and “Girls.” And now, of course, you can’t travel to the bottom of the South China Sea without first passing through “the Brooklyn of the Malacca Strait,” or some equivalent." — The New York Times
Shopping local is more than a trend — it is the future of a sustainable economy. Studies show that when you purchase products from small local businesses, 68% of the profits go back into that business' local economy, creating more jobs, opportunity and growth. However, when you purchase items from a larger company, only 43% of the profits go back into the community — the rest is wasted on the bloat accrued by such a large entity and, ultimately, into the pockets of shareholders. Where would you rather put your dollars?
