          The underlying image in this work is the outside window of where I lived during medical school at the University of Chicago. I sought refuge and found it  at a Jewish home for the elderly, Drexel Home. My room was in the basement. I received room and board, in addition to a small stipend. My job was to provide emergency medical services for the residents at night and on weekends.

          This is when I learned of the rich Lithuanian Jewish history.

          This building is located just one block away from the intersection of 63rd Street and S. Cottage Grove Avenue. This is the location of the legendary Leroy Brown (the song about him on the south side of Chicago). 


  • 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 13 years of experience and works only with silk, no other fabrics. This company’s Amazon rating is 4.7 out of 5. These scarves are heavy, durable and warm.
