Fashionista Tea + Tea Scarves = Connections

Thank you Brenda of Fashionista Tea for your Blog!  Tea Scarf and Fashionista Tea are awesome!   There are so many artists and makers who come to the Real NYC Designer Market and make friends/connections with their next door neighbor!  You never know who you will meet….  Keep your minds and hearts open and the right person will be dropped into your path!  We are inspired – REAL brings so much talent together and so many ideas all under one roof (and sky)!

“Recently, FashionistaTea was an exhibitor at the Real NYC Designer Market in the Nolita neighborhood of New York City.  The Market features handmade décor, fashion, leather work, jewelry and all kinds of accessories. I had the opportunity to meet, Artist Reed Slater who was exhibiting beautiful scarves made from Tea.

Reed launched Tea Scarf in 2013 with the desire to create sustainably produced, eco-friendly, luxury scarves.  The scarves are printed on sustainably produced bamboo fabric and each pattern is created using teabags (how cool is this??) which have been steeped and printed on paper.  Each design and scarf is unique and the original prints on paper are photographed and the designs transferred to bamboo fiber, becoming wearable art.  Reed works in Brooklyn, New York and they are the stylish accessory to wear on a cool summer evening.  Check out his web site at:  www.teascarf.com  

How could I not love this, fashion that is eco-friendly and the perfect combination of Tea and fashion!

Here are a few of Reed’s scarves that were featured at the Designer Market (www.RealNYCmarket.com)”

FashionistaTea Organic Orange Chamomile Blend

“The FashionistaTea Collection is sourced from small tea growers from around the world to assure the freshest and best possible ingredients. The line consists of all organic teas and botanicals and Fair Trade Tea wherever possible, which promotes fair wages for workers, helps to protect against land loss and promotes environmentally friendly processes for producers and their families. We love the idea of helping farmers in a small way in other parts of the world. For more information please visit www.fairtradecertified.org.

The unique feature of the collection is the custom crafted biodegradable silk pyramid sachets with a tea tag of a leopard print stiletto heel making its debut. More stylish tags will follow similar to fashion collections keeping the line fresh, collectible, current and ever-changing. This couture-inspired tag displayed over a tea cup not only allows for a visual experience but automatically becomes a conversation piece.

About the Owner

FashionistaTea was founded by Brenda Dillon Cavette. For as long as she can remember, she has loved tea, beginning with fond memories at the kitchen table drinking tea with her mom. Tea has signified many things, from sitting in quiet reflection taking a moment from a busy day, to gathering with friends and family celebrating special occasions. Travel opened a new world of tea for Brenda, revealing its history, wonderful flavors and sensibilities. The thirst to know more about this lovely, complex beverage led Brenda to study tea more intently and become a member of The Specialty Tea Institute, a division of The Tea Association of the USA.

A former television producer and Emmy Award nominee, Brenda produced numerous fashion and design segments. A love of all things stylish, from studying fashion design and merchandising in college, further inspired the connection of tea and fashion. These two worlds now meet in a collection of gourmet teas crafted to impart a unique taste and an aura of sophistication. The line was designed using Organic and Fair Trade teas packaged in beautiful, elegant tins. Tea is a healthy beverage and now FashionistaTea can turn any cup of tea into “Tea with Style.” ™”                                                       –FashionistaTea
