Further Information

Each one of the 1,127 scarves of PROJECT ELEVEN27 is individually handwoven with silk, cotton, and recycled sarees collected from women in rural villages around Kutch, India. They are handwoven by artisans that have been practicing this artistry for centuries and Laura Siegel stands to sustain their cultures through bringing their traditional craft to the western world. 

During Laura's most recent trip to India, she collected used sarees and collaborated with local artisans to design this item that embodies their culture and unique craft.

Each scarf is made in memory of an individual that lost his or her life in the Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh in April of 2013. A portion of the proceeds from each purchase is going to Sreepur Village Organization.

    Yogis, world travelers, and Maha Mala creators Nora Wendel and Piya Jain have transformed traditional Mala jewelry into chic "dual purpose”necklaces. This New Delhi duo started out with the idea to create sacred healing objects -- what they ended up making were contemporary treasures that are equally stylish and spiritual. We caught up with these busy globetrotters and asked them to share the story behind their label and their favorite local tips for living large in New Delhi.
  • Just Back From: Nikoi Island, Indonesia

    I recently traveled to Singapore and Indonesia with my husband and three kids. The highlight was the four days we spent on Nikoi (www.nikoi.com), a private island retreat that is owned by a friend of mine, Julia Dixon and her husband, Andrew. Julia is an artist with an incredible eye and she and Andrew have been based in Singapore for ten years. They bought Nikoi a few years ago with three other couples and have turned it into an amazing resort that has only recently opened.
