Have you ever wandered, innocently enough, into a library or bookstore? A brightly colored book attracts your attention and suddenly, you are transported into a completely different world. Sometimes strange, sometimes beautiful, sometimes tragically torn and being remade — but always, these worlds are “once upon a time”.
To make Literary Travels, we began with a soft purple wool suiting and a dark purple wool crepe. Purple, the ancient color of royalty and hence, somewhat magical and extra-ordinary, seemed an appropriately enchanting color. Then, we hand-embroidered the words “Once upon a time”. After all, that’s how all good stories begin!
Silk ribbon dances around the embroidery, forming our signature bow. We think the finished result is little short of enchanting.
