 Not just a scarf, this is art:

“Manuelle Scarves” is a collection of unique digitally printed silk photo scarves, each series originating from photos taken in NYC, Asia, and Europe.  Each season consist of limited scarves.
Photographer / Artist  Manny Sanchez currently resides in Brooklyn, but he loves to travel.  Born in Long Island  New York to Cuban parents, Manny was raised in Los Angeles, but eventually came back to New York.  Travel and photography had been life long passions, but inspired by the fashion of New York City he began to work with fabrics as an art medium. Soon he began transferring his pictures onto silks -thus the idea for Manuelle Scarves.

I recently caught up with Manuelle and discovered that The American Museum of Natural History in NYC asked him to develop a limited edition of silk scarves inspired by their Hall Of North America Diorama’s and their hall of Planet Earth, quite an honor!

I asked what he was up to now and Manny answered, “My last collection of scarves and summer wraps consisted of a series of photographs I captured in Havana, Cuba.  I’m currently working on my spring/summer collection, the theme is “From the Desert to the Sea.” I grew up in Southern California and being away for several years has made me long for the beauty this state has to offer. The series will consist of images from Sequoia National Park,  California Beaches, and Palm Springs.  I also continue to produce exclusive digitally printed scarves for the AMNH. I recently designed a Scarf for their Nature’s Fury Exhibit currently running in NYC until Aug of 2015.”
