Announcing Acacia’s Spring Collection

image

When Brandon and I were trying to decide on a name for our shop, we knew we wanted something maritime-influenced and connected to Nova Scotia, Canada, where some of my family is from and still lives. Nova Scotia is where I first learned about tartans and clan tartans. (I am related to the Shaw clan through my paternal grandmother’s side and it’s impossible to go to Nova Scotia without seeing the provincial tartan somewhere.) When we looked at starting with tartan and plaid scarves this winter, we thought it would be great to find a name to bring all of these things together. The Acacia Valley is near the Port of Digby, Nova Scotia—and that’s where we would arrive by ferry when we visited. Acacia was the perfect name. 

Although we’re moving away from plaids for the warmer months, the Acacia spring collection continues to have a maritime influence. We found a great anchor print, a gorgeous print of boat plan schematics, and we chose solid colors inspired by the ocean: the deep blues of the water, the lighter blues of the sky, the taupes of the sand, the grays of the rocky shorelines.

What we really wanted to do this spring was create stylish, beautiful scarves that could be worn all year long. We wanted a scarf that’s refined enough to be worn to work but versatile enough to be paired with jeans or leggings on the weekend. 

Versatility in spring/summer scarves has a lot to do with fabric weight. Our fall/winter scarves are a heavier flannel. That’s perfect for keeping warm, but not ideal for spring or summer!

image

We chose two types of fabric for our year-round and warm weather scarves: fine cotton and linen blends. 

We cut our plaid winter scarves generously large—approximately 70 inches long by 40 inches wide. For our new collection, we wanted scarves that were smaller and more manageable but didn’t look anemic when tied. 

Our linen-blend scarves are approximately 70 inches long and 30 inches wide. 

image

Our cotton infinity scarves are approximately 12 inches wide and 40 inches long. They can be worn as a large open loop or looped twice (my favorite way to wear them, see below). 

image

We hope you enjoy our new spring and summer scarves as much as we’ve enjoyed making them! Watch for some new prints and colors over the next month too. 

Happy scarf shopping! 

— Jaclyn and Brandon

Paula Bianco’s popular knit scarves are on sale on Shopbop today in the three colors above for $52 (from $75). These hardly ever go on sale—at least not at this steep a discount—so it’s a good time to get one if you’ve been considering it. I love the cobalt one. Cobalt scarves seem to go with everything.
