When it comes to design, we?re inclined to favor quality over quantity (an expensive handbag that lasts you 20 years always trumps the trendy clutch). Amy Sia seems to agree, as is evidenced by her new line of digital-print scarves.
The London-based textile designer?s work incorporates both a paintbrush and a computer, making for vivid prints that look like watercolors, yet infinitely cooler. To create her unique scarves ($80), she begins with one of her own inspired paintings, which she then scans and adjusts digitally before printing onto delicate silk fabric.
Sia?s prints are also available for purchase on Society6 and Deny Designs--two crowd-sourced websites that offer designers the ability to turn their work into things like iPhone cases, stationery, throw pillows, sheets and even custom clocks.
While her items are made in the U.K., Sia is kindly offering PureWow readers a special discount on international orders. Simply enter the coupon code PUREWOW at checkout now through October 5 to receive free shipping.
