ABOUT


 

Our Poetry of Place, a custom scarf company, grew out of an Illustrated map designed for the New York Historical Society's show “Madeline in New York: The Art of Ludwig Bemelmans". 

We are sisters, Adrienne and Elise, and have been working together since childhood. Between us we have years of experience in illustration and cartography (Adrienne), and textile design and development (Elise). We work with museums, individuals, organizations and other entities to design custom scarves that reflect your story. We are committed to collaborative team work and believe good working relations result in thoughtful beautiful results. 

 

There is a long tradition of maps on fabric. From the exquisite Srinagar map embroidered on an 1870 Indian shawl to the maps on silk scarves carried by the pilots of WW2. These days, we are all “on the map," with satellites, google maps, and easy internet map technology making it increasingly obvious that everything is connected. Within this massive global cultural shift, Our Poetry of Place offers individuals and institutions the ability to be present on the map in a meaningful, artistic way.
