I am debuting the line with pillows and scarves, but soon my unique photo prints will be available on tote bags, a boxy blouse, and a super-adaptable (universally-flattering) dress. Pillows are made with organic cotton knit fabric, and scarves are silk; all are based on original photographs by Starre Vartan.
You can purchase the items below at the Dogwood & Hastings Etsy shop.
Barbados Balustrade Pillow
The Barbados Balustrade pillow is made from an image I took while on a trip to the Caribbean island. You can see the original (and additional) Barbados images here.
The Train/Moon pillow is taken from an image from the Manhattan collection; a tiny early-rising 2/3 moon hovers above the graphic inevitability of the train tracks that lead from suburbs to Big City.
NYC Bedrock Scarf
The NYC Bedrock scarf is made from a photo I took of bedrock laced with leaves in Central Park. Most of Manhattan island is underlain with two types of schist; this one is from the Hartland Formation, about 400-500 million years old. This type of hard metamorphic rock makes the skyscrapers of the city (and their enormous weights) possible. They are also fun to climb when you’re in the park.
