Deborah Zwetsch hand paints her silk scarves

We were pleased that we ran into Deborah Zwetsch a couple weeks ago. She does beautiful hand painted scarves.

I first met her in New York. I was really drawn to her work but at the time we weren't carrying any wearables, just purses.

I thought maybe it was too hot here for scarves but decided to try some. We've been pleased that we have sold LOTS of scarves since we started carrying them in the fall.

All the scarves we have are beautiful but Deborah's are exceptional.

Deborah is an award-winning artist, with a BA in Art Therapy and a degree from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

She began painting on silk because of the luminous quality color the dye takes upon the silk surface.

Her work reflects her innate color sense and she draws her designs from nature.

We've been expanding our area of wearables - we now have purses, men's ties, scarves, cotton socks, belts and wallets. Deborah's pieces are a great addition. They're so beautiful they can even be hung on the wall as a piece of art.
