Move over cashmere, there is a new scarf in town. Meet mYak from Italy. The company was created by the Terre Nomadiche, a cooperative founded out of respect for traditional cultures and a collaboration with local communities in the Tibetan Plateau.
Let me cut to the chase here. The baby Yak started shedding it’s super light weight, soft, fuzzy and warm coat in May. The nomads in the Tibetan Plateau comb and collect the short fibres of baby yak wool but it is particularly difficult to spin and work with, especially for knitwear. Here is where mYak comes in; to spin and weave the baby yak wool they have partnered with a family-run mill in Italy with strong traditions of care for the environment who are able to spin and weave the highest quality textiles from even the finest fibers.
They do not chemically treat or bleach any of the textiles. The final product is the finest, luxurious scarves and blankets.
@ProjectShow : Accessories Round Up
Sometime you get dressed and you can’t do more than pick out your simplest, most basic pieces to get you out the door on time (if you are like me, that is). The key to making those outfits shine with personality is everything else; The Accessories. Here is a preview of what’s in store for FW’12.
Over sized hats are not going away thankfully and here is a beautiful teal topper from the classic kids at Kangol.
Bags are always a great option to be on-trend without buying into a full look of something. Azaya Blue makes such fun neon and studded options. The Navajo print is still going strong but you should get it from the leaders of the pack with the Dopp bag from Pendleton Woolen Mills.
Perhaps you are more interested in something a bit more exotic. Steal from the boys with this Parabellum doctor bag I found at Project Wooster.
Another obsession of mine are scarves. Especially bright over-sized ones! These Kapital ones were lovingly placed at Project Wooster.
Why be boring with a plain iPhone case when you can get the best ones from Incase. I love the new Andy Warhol ones.
Happy Socks came by the ProjectBlogger’s table and gave us their Project Show exclusive. You can get happy with all these dotty styles here.
You didn’t think I’d post an accessories round up without any shoes? Of course not. I saved the best for last. Get a load of these claw boots by Friend of Mine. They come in grey too, if you wondering.
Click links for shopping! And if you want to thank me for the sneak peeks I wear a size 6 in those Claw boots. Hint Hint.
