Yigal Azroul's Scarf for Obama's Runway to Win


About six weeks ago, I was taking a work break from my NYC communal office at GreenSpaces, and I wandered into Yigal Azroul’s shop in Tribeca, CUT 25, where I was lucky enough to stumble across a most gorgeous, full-length, awesomely printed skirt (on sale).

Coincidentally, when I was virtually wandering through the Runway to Win online shop, which Vogue‘s Anna Wintour put together to raise money for Obama’s re-election campaign, I was immediately drawn to this totally gorgeous scarf—which of course is by the aforementioned Azroul. And it is Made in the USA! Kismet!

Designed by Yigal Azrouël of Yigal Azrouël. Oversized scarf measures 70” X 48,” made of a 70 percent bamboo/30 percent cotton gauze for a super soft feel. Edges are left unfinished and hand frayed making each scarf unique. Made in the USA.

There’s just about a month left to support Obama’s campaign; consider this lovely scarf as a way to help the President (perhaps it will buy him some fair-trade coffee or even better, a large organic green juice for energy for his next debate!).
