We are honored to have our artisan scarves featured at the museum store at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, CA. The Huntington Store offers thousands of luxurious, whimsical, and unique gifts to delight shoppers in a vaulted sky-lit space with eight thematic rooms. Each month the store features a specially curated selection of seasonal gifts and books, apparel, toys, and home decor relating to The Huntington’s library, art, and botanical collections. They love our scarves in traditional water marbled designs which evoke the beauty of the antique water marbled end papers (and sometimes covers) of many of the rare books on display in the Library Collections.

Pictured below are just a few of the designs we sent to the Museum Store in 2015.
A perfect day for painting
Paint meets paint! Creativity was the word of the day this past Friday as we made scarves with the fine folks from Behr Processing Corporation (ie, Behr Paints). What a fun group of people, and the lovely garden setting - at Cafe Rose Express in Costa Mesa - was simply perfect. We are so grateful to Sr. VP Kelly Kambs and her cheerful assistant, Lynpo Lo, for making it a day to remember for all of us. I only wish I'd had a chance to take more pictures of all the amazing designs everyone made!

"Gel-Git" is a Turkish phrase meaning "back and forth," and is the name of the basic chevron-like water marbling design formed by pulling the rake, comb or stylus back and forth through the paint.
We hope that this phrase will also describe our relationship with you and the many other folks with whom we have enjoyed sharing this beautiful art form.
Please feel free to contact us at any time with your photos, ideas, questions, event inquiries, or custom orders.
Star McCain and Philip Greenwood took a leap of faith, abandoning lucrative professional careers to follow their dream of working together to share the joy and beauty of water marbling on silk with others.
