Most of you are aware that I LOVE knowing about up-and-coming fashion lines…  I am especially excited to come upon the accessories brand, A Peace Treaty.

For Farah Malik and Dana Arbib, APT is a product of their shared philosophy of peace.  Their goal is to not only employ artisans whose ancient crafting techniques can continue, but also support harmony in areas of the Middle East, South Asia, and Africa.  It’s worth noting that the owners practice what they preach–Malik is a Muslim and Arbib is Jewish.

This union translates into a beautiful ornamentation of scarves and jewelry.  The Tavla collection is inspired by the Op-Art movement and has a particular mod look.

I love the illusion of your ears being spiked by the Tekneci earring–the two pieces actually screw on.

My favorite scarf is the Aurora Neon.  Made of crepe silk, this generous scarf has a graceful drape and lightness.  It can easily be worn with denim, or as an evening shawl.
