a peace treaty

Oak has quickly become one of my favorite retailers. I feel blessed that they've take the opportunity to open their audience beyond lucky New Yorkers with their online boutique. Everything they sell is amazingly gorgeous and kudos to the photographer with his ability to capture this gorgeousness. If anything, I visit this site like I do with an art gallery.

I got an email from Oak about one of the new lines they are starting to carry- A Peace Treaty. The first though that came to mind was... hmmm... what is this? I have never heard of them before. When I opened the link, I was immediately mesmerized by this delightful eye candy (you can also say neck candy). Always a curious mind, I found out that they are "a new socially conscious label of global artifacts. Operating from the UWS, it’s based on a pact made by two smart ladies (a Pakistani Muslim and Libyan Jew) to raise global awareness." Interesting. They make hand-loomed scarves from Pakistan’s Punjab Province and their workers use ancient crafting techniques to produce the brightly colored checks and plaids.

Can I have one of each please?

very nice collection of scarfs but quite pricey, huh? Well, maybe it's because I'm a student and never paid more than 10€ before for a scarf :)

When I was obsessed with Leigh & Luca scarves which are 2-4 times more, I'm okay with these prices. If I get a nice coupon code, be sure that I will buy one!

Hi! I just found your blog and i have to say I'M OBSESSED! I feel like I've found a kindred spirit in your fashion sense! I am equally as obsessed with Mike & Chris, Rachel Comey, and scarves. I look fwd to being a regular reader.

<3 fashion chalet... FYI, you can buy one of these scarves direct from a peace treaty and the prices are a bit cheaper.

monelle... I'm glad you like my blog and happy to have a new reader!
