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, go through the ups and downs of romance with Sense and Sensibility, take a tumble down the rabbit hole with Alice in Wonderland, or citations from Mr. Darcy with Pride and Prejudice. 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.

“I think it's really important for an artist to surround oneself with his or her own work because taking on new illustrations is terrifying. It's comforting to see what's already been overcome and to be reminded that you can do this.”

Fashion designer and book lover Tori Tissell fuses both into her work with fashionable flair in her Portland, Oregon, studio. She received her degree in fashion design from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, and after being stumped for gift ideas one 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. Each of her bookish accessories provides a window into a world of storybook magic.

I purchased all four of Tori Tissell's literary scarves---Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, Alice in Wonderland, and Dorian Grey---because I couldn't choose one over the others. I love them all! Each is made with the same quality cotton jersey, which is both soft and substantial in weight and which drapes very nicely. Each is different enough from the others to warrant buying more than one scarf, as I did, if a person so chooses. The neutral colors can go with many outfits. Winter white and/or gray is just one of many possibilities. I like that these scarves can easily be worn at least during the autumn, winter, and spring months. It seems that Tori Tissell put a lot of thought into her designs. I appreciate her dedication to her artistry and to her workmanship. The scarves were even very carefully, neatly, and individually folded and packaged---a nice touch of perfectionism not often found nowadays.

I very rarely return online purchases and have never written a negative product review but this was such a disappointing poorly produced item that I have to share it with other customers. From reading other reviews, I knew that the scarf was cotton, as opposed to a silky fabric shown in the image, so that was not a surprise, although the quality and drape is not at all as shown. But the major defect is the printing. The lettering is dark and uniform in some places and pale, splotchy and uneven in others. I thought perhaps it was supposed to be a vintage look but it's so inconsistent and the printing, particularly in the sections near the seams fades to be almost unreadable. It really looks like an irregular or seconds. Having paid extra shipping to get this here before Mother's Day I am incredibly disappointed with my first (and last) purchase from this company.
