The concept of the f street scarf started many years ago. Around 1995 I began to use vintage wool coats as the primary fabric for my handbags. At that time the beautiful woven damask labels were so plentiful and I sewed them to my market tent and booth curtains.Twenty some years later the labels are very hard to come by. How could I translate the nostalgia for the good, old stores into something that was affordable and wearable? That was when I started working on this scarf.
