That's a Wrap

Merging merino wool with soft silk, artist Christina Louise and her team created this gorgeous scarf using only soap and water. By hand-massaging the two textiles together, each piece offers its own unique fusion of color and texture.

Flowing silk chiffon in olive or teal is punctuated by eye-catching patches of wool, adding visual intrigue as it cascades over your shoulders. Stylish and versatile, this scarf brings soft feminine style and transforms your ensemble into a wearable work of art. Handmade in Mexico.

Christa Louise

Having grown up in a family of artists, I started exploring various forms of artistic expression from a very young age. When I first learned the techniques used to merge wool to silk, it was like a revelation for me. I fell in love with the freedom of design and the virtually limitless color palette. There is a magical component to this process, which is the reward for the physical exertion that goes into making each piece. It truly encompasses the idea of 'craft' as 'art'. I wanted to focus on creating designs that could appeal to a broad spectrum of customers, while maintaining the integrity of the art form. When I decided to launch my own business, I did it with the idea of providing work for women in developing countries. Mexico was an obvious choice due to its proximity to the US, as well as the fact that my parents retired there, to a small pueblo called Ajijic, and oversee the daily operations. I taught groups of women the process necessary to create the pieces and chose those whom I considered best suited for the job. We have been working together since the end of 2009 and they are fantastic. They continually improve upon their techniques and take pride in their creations. Ultimately, I would like to have small pockets of production in various countries all over the world. I consider it a win-win scenario to be able to teach women a skill that allows me to employ them, which hopefully, provides them with a sense of empowerment through economic independence.

    Comments about ROMANTIC SILK AND MERINO WRAP SCARF:

    This is an absolutely gorgeous scarf or more like a work of art. How wonderful to know that it is made by hand and of 100% silk and merino wool. it is a seer delight to wear. It gives warmth without being heavy. The turquoise color is so beautiful and a great color for everyone. Every time I wear it people stop and ask me where they can get one.

      I love using scarves for both casual and dress occasions. I always get compliments on the Christa Louise scarves that I wear - and I own many - as they are beautifully designed with gorgeous colors.

        My sister owns a couple of these silk scarves and bought one for me for my Birthday.

        I LOVE it! The silk is top quality and I can dress up any outfit with it. It makes my casual attire really "pop".
