The underlyinig image deals with the site where I sought refuge during a very difficult epoch in my life. This location, on the University of Chicago campus, provided me freedom. Many individuals throughout the world are seeking their own sites of refuge, their own freedom. This piece is intended to celebrate their quest and provide hope for the fulfillment of their dreams.

These scarves should only be dry cleaned.
These are large-scale, 100% pure silk scarves, 140 x 140 cm (55 x 55 in). Given their size, they are more properly called wraps (skraistės in Lithuanian). Most designer scarves, at their largest, are only 90 x 90 cm (35 x 35 in). These are two and a half times that size.
The mulberry silk used is of the highest quality with twill weaving. The printing techniques are state of the art. All materials used in the production process are environmentally friendly, non-toxic with OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 certification. STANDARD 100 is the strictest environmental certification in the world. The company that does my printing has 14 years of experience with silk. These scarves are heavy, durable and warm.
