"Leaving behind nights of terror and fear / I rise / Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear / I rise." It's hard to speak for Maya Angelou, so artist Tori Tissell lets her speak for herself. And the words? They'll give you goosebumps. This empowering scarf is screen-printed by hand with the renowned poet's entire poem, "Still I Rise." Within its soft, lightweight cloth is the determination and persistence of all people who have been undermined, disenfranchised, and denied equality. It makes a subtly inspiring, wearable statement for activist friends or the person who inspires you to get up each day and march on. Handmade in Portland, Oregon.

“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.
