|Kate Design West Indies Collection Shot|
Their first collection, the West Indies Collection, launched a few months ago with 5 fabulous designs…3 of which are available on Shoddy-Ba-Chic. Each scarf, says Kate, "starts life as a large oil canvas in my studio. It’s a combination of design and figurative painting. The understanding of the harmony of color has really been my study,” Once the design is complete, the scarves come to life. Woven in Kashmir from the finest fabrics, hand dyed by artisans, washed using natural Kashmir spring water, and finished manually…the finished product is second to none. To see it is to love it…to wear it is to be obsessed! So soft to the touch... whether you wear it around your neck as a scarf or around your body as a cover up, wrap, or sarong…you will never want to take it off. It is like wrapping yourself in a gorgeous work of art.

How lucky we are that these two fabulous women met. I am thrilled to have discovered them and to be able to showcase their collection on Shoddy-Ba-Chic. What a wonderful way to love and appreciate one of the the Carribean's greatest artist! Available in a single weight ($225) and a double weight ($325)…the reasonable prices make these works of art accessible to the many art and fashion lovers around the world.
