Even after living in San Francisco for many years, we confess that we still get lost sometimes. Market goes diagonal and just throws us all off. So it's comforting to know that we can combine a lovely neck accessory with finding our way back to familiar territory with this colorful silk scarf created by Jennifer Maravillas.
Local online publication The Bold Italic collaborated with the artist, who splits her time between SF and Brooklyn (lucky girl), to create this pretty and summery 100% silk scarf. The folks at TBI tell us the artist was inspired by "the many colors to be seen around the city: the cold hues of the Pacific, the shades of succulents, wild and overgrown hidden trails, the elusive sunlight, newly painted boats, rainbow salt ponds, bridges, painted Victorians, patterned tiles of taquerias, produce stacked and waiting, the hippies and the hipsters, people watching people watching people, silver rooftops, the blur of bicycles passing, and of course, the gray fog." That sums up our city quite well, doesn't it? Appropriately, the 36" x 36" scarf was even made here in SF, so you can feel good about snapping one up for $120 at The Bold Italic's online store.
