How to promote peace? Wear a peace scarf: Peace out of Darkness

by Mary DeArment December 13, 2015

The Paris shootings of November 2015 made me wonder, as I have in the wake of every terror attack, "What can I do?"  As a scarf designer, I have no voice in policy but as an artist who works with words, I literally make a statement every time I create a design. Peace became the inspirational word, and in a week I created a series of designs made with the word "peace." My vision is that women all over the world will promote peace by engaging with the concept: share the designs; discuss the meaning. Choosing an accessory becomes both a private statement of peace and the starting point of a conversation of solidarity.

Peace out of Darkness: black and blue with the peace effort, the components of peace emerge from a dark background. Some of the elements of peace fit together and stabilize one another. Other elements which make peace are interconnected. Some pieces of peace are fragile. Yet, together, the elements of peace form a unified whole, flowering out of the center.
