Warm Words

Is it easy for you to get all wrapped up in a good book? Then these infinity scarves by Tori Tissell are the perfect way for you to show off some literary love in any weather. Each circular scarf is silkscreened by hand with passages from some of the world's great books, letting you cheer on Jane Eyre, get wrapped up in the misadventures of the denizens of Wuthering Heights, or take a tumble down the rabbit hole with Alice in Wonderland. A great transitional scarf, they're made from medium-weight cotton knit, with a comfy, t shirt-like texture that keeps out the chill without being too heavy. Hand printed in Portland, OR.

Tori Tissell

It doesn’t take much exposition to connect literature and art. Fashion designer and book lover Tori Tissell fuses both with fashionable flair in her Portland, Oregon studio. She attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn from which she received a BFA in Fashion Design.

After being stumped for Christmas gift ideas during the 2011 holiday season, she decided to use her education and passion for screen printing, fashion, and literature to create something memorable for family and friends. The result was a flowing scarf that resembled the pages of a book.

The project became a husband-and-wife collaboration once the scarves started taking off in 2012. Her husband Chris joined her assembly line and they worked together with screen printing, sourcing, and streamlining production. collection

                  I received this as a gift and love it. Wuthering Heights is a long time favorite, and it's so clever to have it printed on a scarf. Received lots of compliments when I first wore it.

                                    I had my number one (four times so far) New York Times Best Selling Author puck out which scarf she liked the best for her birthday and she picked this one. She loves words and she loves scarves. This combined the two!

                                                Comments about LITERARY SCARVES:

                                                This scarf is very soft - made of t-shirt-like fabric. However, it is a little bulky. Being a continuous-scarf may contribute to this since there is no separation. I am 5'1" and it is almost too much for my "neck space." It gets a little softer with each washing, so I'm hoping it will become easier to wear with a little time. However, I love the idea of it and will wear it with a winter coat if it continues to be too bulky for office and casual wear.
