Squar’d Away Founder Sara Harari-Buchnea wanted to create simple objects that make people happy whenever they look at them or hold them in their hands. An art world veteran, Sara used her eye for aesthetics to reinterpret and elevate the classic bandana, fascinated by their ability to soften a look or give it an edge as well as the countless ways to style it. In support of Sara’s dad Isaac, 20% of the proceeds from the sale of each square are donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
The squares are designed in Brooklyn and crafted in San Francisco by women who are all paid fair wages and given benefits. Whilemost printing processes for silk generate a lot of dirty water as a by-product, Squar’d Away scarves are made using a zero waste water process.
