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)”
