Browse for the perfect gift for Mom and meet special in-store vendors Clothe My Soul and Priya Himatsingka. Brooklyn-based artist Jean Lugrin Ferlesch created Clothe My Soul as a way to use embroidery to tell her personal stories. Each piece begins with a hand-drawn sketch. Once scanned into a computer and digitized, it is created and assembled in her studio using rayon thread and dupioni silk, linen or leather. Born in Calcutta, Priya Himatsingka grew up in a family of textile designers, though her materials of choice have been jewelry and metals. Each piece of her jewelry, handmade using mainly silver and high-karat gold, is stylishly simple. She also offers a collection featuring rosecut diamonds—smoky-colored stones custom-cut for her studio.
