Trying to Do a World of Good for the Little Ones at B Frog

Steven and Christian Cremer are the brains behind B Frog. Photos from B Frog Web Site.

In case you haven’t heard, it’s fall. Autumn! What a wonderful time of year, no? For weeks now, those in the rag trade have been rolling out their new stock for shoppers who may be in the market for a few more threads and layers or to get shoppers in said mood. To help trade and to help VEVLYN’S PEN readers and followers (potential shoppers), Yours Truly will be bringing to your attention over the next few weeks or so various fall collections. What shall I call these snapshots, for I won’t bore you with a treatise? Yes! I've got it: “Glimpses of Fall.” I reckon just about every Thursday through Thanksgiving or November (whichever comes first; I haven’t checked the calendar:o), I’ll provide a peek at a collection/line/brand that I deem captivating and worthy of your notice. Happy shopping! (potentially).

THE pink-orange multi scarf can be a source of brightness doing the bleakest of winter days when the air is heavy with cold and the landscape is covered with snow. Or it can serve as a bright counterpoint to an all-black ensemble.

The scarf, from the months-old company of Christian and Steven Cremer called B Frog, is handmade in the highlands of Guatemala from 100 percent soft cotton. The threads from which it is formed have many colors within each one. That explains the many colors of the scarves and the unique pattern of each.

The pink-multi scarve is light enough for summer and heavy enough for winter.

Mayans believe that the patterns are a sort of good luck charm, protecting the wearer from harm and/or guaranteeing wealth and procreation. Woven in a centuries-old Mayan method called Jaspe, the pink-multi scarf and the other three in a capsule collection that includes polo-style shirts are designed to attract attention to themselves and to a really good cause … More shortly.
