Few weeks ago I was contacted by VIDA, a startup fashion company VIDA based out of San Francisco. VIDA is a global partnership of creators, pairing designers from around the world with makers in Pakistan to create beautiful products. And the best part, VIDA creates literacy programs for the makers from the sales of the product, so that they have opportunities to learn to read, to write, do basic math and build a better life for generations to come. Have a look at VIDA story in video below, you’ll understand why I’m so excited!
My scarves design are made out of 100% MicroModal® by Lenzing, a luxuriously soft botanic silk fabric made out of European beechwood. Because of modal’s botanic origin, it is particularly eco-friendly and its fineness is comparable to that of natural silk. MicroModal® offers a soft, beautiful sheen, with colors that are bright and vibrant. The completely natural fiber of this scarf is made in a fully integrated facility in Austria, optimized for production synergies and energy conservation by using eco-friendly production processes. The fabric is woven in a small factory in Pakistan. VIDA collaborates with the owner and workers of this factory to produce the perfect thread-count and weave for optimal softness and sheen.
Pop over to my Shop Vida Page and use the coupon code VOICES to get 25% off (that’s just $30 for each scarf). All designs with 5+ pre-orders will be produced and shipped within 30 days.

Yes, I’m very happy when my work provides support for others, that I could make a difference in somebody’s life!
