Artist spotlight: Suzi Roher
Posted on July 09, 2015
Followers of Urban Swathe already know I can’t resist a good scarf. And while I don’t like to play favorites with them, I do recognize when I come across something really special. My latest find: Suzi Roher scarves.
Each Suzi Roher scarf is a one-of-a-kind. Every single scarf is handmade in Italy from a blend of cashmere, silk, and modal yarns, and then Suzi uses them as a blank canvas to make true works of art.
She uses a unique process of dyeing and washing so the scarf takes on a life of its own with rich, vibrant colors that showcase more depth than with more common methods. This method also leaves the scarves incredibly light and airy, meaning you’ll likely forget you’re wearing it, even on the warmest of days.
One of Suzi’s style trademarks is coming up with designs created from digital prints of original artwork. As a result, they have great versatility--with a simple twist, turn, or fluff of the scarf, the wearer can look like she’s sporting a completely new garment.
And the great thing is, it will look new forever! The quality is phenomenal, something Suzi insists on with all of her handmade items. Whether you throw it in the washer, or hand wash, because of a spill, it's a no fuss scarf, with no snagging or pilling, which is practically magic on a scarf this lightweight.
You can learn more about Suzi and her collections on her website. And of course, you can view more scarves at Urban Swathe.com, too. I'd love to hear from you and I’m happy to answer any questions you have about Suzi's scarves.
