Perspective in Form of a Scarf

slow factory scarf

I will not leave my house without a Slow Factory scarf these days. Wearing a NASA Space Telescope Image of a globular cluster or honoring Amelia Erhart gives me the perspective I need these days. Ever since the presidential election here in the U.S. I feel like there is a heavy gray cloud hanging over my world.

But we can’t have our spirits broken. We need to show up and be a positive force in the world. Slow Factory’s Scarves remind me of this. Every day. And yes, I am most likely their biggest fan.

Bruce Lee x Tattly Collaboration

Bruce Lee Tattly 15251685_1651885738437387_6263757287756660736_n

Best known as a legendary martial arts expert and inspiring cultural icon, Bruce Lee was also a profound philosopher and poet. Viewing the practice of philosophy as inseparable from day-to-day life, Lee carried a small pocketbook that he would fill with training regimens and general notes, as well as thought-provoking reflections, affirmations, and writings. To this day, more than 40 years after his untimely passing, these writings continue to inspire and motivate generations.

Team Tattly had the incredibly honor to collaborate with Shannon Lee, Bruce Lee’s daughter just launched a set of temporary tattoos in honor of her dad’s legacy.

Be Water My Friend is one of my all-time favorite sayings and being able to wear it in Bruce Lee’s handwriting makes me so happy!

The Be Water, My Friend set launched yesterday and is flying off the shelves! My heart!

Untranslatable Words

Untranslatable WordsUntranslatable WordsUntranslatable Words

The other night I got lost in this box of cards with untranslatable words. As someone who grew up in Switzerland, has lived in other parts of the world, having to learn and adapt to new languages, knows the pain of not being able to express something in one language but knowing a word for exactly *that* feeling in another. My love for words is deep. If yours is too, you’ll enjoy this.

Women In Science on Scarves

This collection titled Women Who Inspire by Brooklyn based Slow Factory is just what the world needs right now. It’s a line of eco-friendly and fair trade based scarves dedicated to women in science. Boss ladies that paved the way. I am wearing my Amelia Earhart scarf every day and am channeling her courage as much as I can. You should put a boss lady around your neck as well.

Also, you should know that Slow Factory is a labor of love of one of the most generous, good hearted, strong women I have ever met: Céline Semaan Vernon.
