Hey pretties! I wanted to give you all an update today on the difference we’re making with the GYPO Collection line of silk scarves.
But first off, for those of you who are new around here and not familiar with the line, a bit of backstory.
For the past few years, I’ve had several readers and members of the Style Challenge come to me asking for a retail line of accessories that we could easily add to our outfits to create interest. After collecting survey results, it was decided that the first pieces in that line would be printed scarves.
I knew that I wanted them to be high quality materials, made in the US and to support a great cause (more on that later) but still be affordable. I’m just going to be honest, not an easy feat to check all of those boxes!
We were able to commission a female Brooklyn-based artist who created some lovely watercolor florals for us that we put out to a vote. The top three vote getters were then sent off to be printed on silk scarves by a company in San Francisco, CA.
Not one single detail has been overlooked in this line, even our packaging is eco-friendly and comes from a US based woman owned business!
Each scarf arrives in our mailers, beautifully wrapped in tissue with a gift card explaining the ways intention has been woven into the line.
A total of six different scarf styles – one of each pattern in a bandana style and long scarf have been created for the line.
The GYPO Collection
Now to THE BEST part – as a result of this labor of love, to date we’ve donated 20 nights (and counting!) of warm meals, safety and restful sleep in a private room to women and children escaping abusive situations at Genesis Women’s Shelter in Dallas. Thank YOU for making a difference!
It takes a village and I’m SO grateful for the support of those of you who’ve helped spread the word. An extra special shout out goes to Shay Shull for featuring our line in her Friday Favorites on Mix and Match Mama!
I’d also like to take a minute to feature the GYPO Stylists who have generously shared the line with their readers and followers including:
