I love accessorizing! What female doesn`t? Maybe not all, but most I know love it as well. So I`m always looking for new products and items to bring out an outfit or dress it up or just looks cool.Â Stone + Mann
has an awesome variety of things to choose from!
One of the products Stone + Mann
offers are scarves. You can also find pillows and soon to come you will be able to find lightening + vessels! I received aÂ Calla Scarf
and it is absolutely beautiful! The colors remind me of fire and the sun. It`s yellow, orange and a red/orange color. Perfect for the Spring/Summer weather! The scarf itself is made of quality material. It`s flirty and fun! It`s also made of silk chiffon! It is bias-sewn to create diagonal ruffles. Which I think adds a beautiful affect to it. You can find this scarf in 2 other color mix choices as well so if this color does not suit you, just see the other colors available.
As it turns out, wanting to design is completely unrelated to wanting to talk about yourself. However, there`s always an About page so ....
Years ago, we (Jackie and Kent, college sweethearts then, happily translated into wife and husband now) traveled a lot -- a big trip to Europe and another to Asia, extended stays in Tucson and Seattle, lots of time in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the California desert and on the South Carolina coast. And we thought, "Hey, we`ll build a whole life around things we really like ... nature and other cultures, architecture and craft and history, photography and tortillas and beer (ok, the last only applies to one of us). And of course each other.
Then came a move to New York (yea), 3 kids (triple yea) and corporate jobs (somewhat less yea).
Stone + Mann was started somewhere in the middle of all this. Some quick scarf sketches and samples, successful visits to a few NYC stores at Christmastime, a lucky meeting with a young woman starting a showroom in Japan and so it began. After a great 9 years designing scarves and handbags -- drawing on the shapes of Burmese pagodas, the colors of the desert, the cobblestone patterns on old streets -- and working with boutiques and department stores across America and Japan, including Barneys New York, Anthropologie, Felissimo and Nordstrom, we took a hiatus (see kids, above).
And now, after a sufficiency of hiatus and based in the beautiful Hudson Valley town of Tarrytown, NY, Stone + Mann is back with a full collection of scarves, and several new branches of individual and home accessories in the works. The collections will grow organically and maybe a little willy-nilly; the whole point is to go with what interests and inspires us, learn more about the world as we go along and let design + commerce mingle as easily as possible with actual life.
One of our favorite books is a children`s book, Miss Rumphius, in which a girl grows up to realize her personal ambitions to travel and live by the sea and, most importantly, to fulfill her grandfather`s wish that she do something to make the world more beautiful. Stone + Mann is our gesture in that direction. Stay tuned ... and thanks for the visit.

The customer service I received was absolutely wonderful! Everyone was very friendly and helpful with my order. The respond to emails in a timely manner as well as ship your product out to you in a timely manner as well. Two really important things for a business to be great in my book.

and browse around. They have a wonderful collection and working on adding more to it. If you like a variation of colors you`ll be sure to love their site as much as I do! The pillows would make great house warming gifts for you or someone else you may know! Just a little suggestion!
