Hand-printed, Ethical & Awesome

June 17, 2013

A Peace Treaty has a gorgeous lookbook full of hand-printed scarves on natural fiber materials for spring 2013—how sweet do these look with the understated hues and scalloped shorts they’re paired with in the lookbook? The brand’s aim is to produce their items ethically, with artisanal details and a luxury end result.

More on their story below…

“Born in 2008, as a personal pact between Farah Malik, a Pakistani Muslim, and Dana Arbib, a Libyan Jew, A PEACE TREATY creates employment for skilled artisans working in places of socio-political strife, effectively supporting their technique and craft while elevating their products to the level of high design for an exclusive and international fashion audience.

Inspired by the hand-crafting cultures of the Middle East, Asia, South America and Africa, A PEACE TREATY was conceived when Arbib and Malik met while living in Rome. The two discovered that they shared both a love of high fashion and a desire to increase awareness of ancient, disappearing crafting traditions.

Intermingling Arbib’s humanitarian upbringing and her background in graphic, textile and product design with Malik’s history of developing multimedia marketing campaigns for social change and human rights as well as her training in ancient Roman jewelry and gold-smithing, they set about connecting discerning fashion connoisseurs with cache, boutique level artifacts from places typically seen only negatively through the media lens.”
