Signature: Each piece tells a unique story
Based in: Chicago, USA
These unusual scarves each have a story printed on the fabric. Some stories are taken from the artist Scottie Kersta-Wilson’s own travels. Other stories are taken from nature. Many are inspired by history, especially stories she learned from her grandfather who survived the Bataan Death March in 1942, and her father who was killed in Vietnam.
Scottie says that storytelling is how she learns, and is how she communicates. She uses photography, collage, words, and images to design her scarves. She tells about the inevitability of war and of how history is full of military conquest. She hopes her scarves not only tell poignant stories of the past but also offer something of beauty and hope for the future.
