Fall is my favorite time of year. I’m a sucker for cute jackets, turtlenecks, boots and of course, fun scarves! Therefore I’m super excited to be able to offer you a chance to win your favorite scarf for fall from Smiles by JEM! Smiles by JEM was founded by two friends, Janelle and Megan, who wanted share their passion for fashion, culture and travel with the rest of the world. Focusing their efforts on women’s accessories, travel, and philanthropy, they founded JEM. Smiles by JEM offers both handmade jewelry as well as handwoven scarves to compliment your perfect fall look.

How to Wear Your Favorite Scarf This Fall

JEM’s jewelry is made in Ventura County at the homes of Janelle and Megan. These two partners also work in Thailand with local artists to design and make their beautiful scarves. The pair have been traveling to Thailand since 2010. After meeting many local artists and seeing the beautiful items they produced, Janelle and Megan decided to design scarves while working in Thailand to create them. They fly to Thailand 3-4 times a year where they spend a few months designing and making scarves which they then bring back to the United States to sell. In addition they also purchase their beads in Thailand (as well as Peru and the United States) and bring them back to the USA to make their jewelry.

SOS Children's Villages in Thailand

JEM’s mission is a commitment to delivering the highest quality handcrafted scarves while giving back to the local communities where their products are made. They give 10 percent of their proceeds back to help develop and sustain local organizations. They donate 10% of their proceeds from scarf sales to SOS Children’s Villages in Thailand, and 10% of the proceeds from their jewelry sales to Food Share in Ventura.

I love love love fall! In fact, now that the nights have been dipping down into the 60’s I’m even more excited for fall to arrive. I even pulled out my box of hand knit hats and fingerless gloves to see what I have and what I might need. Okay, so I really don’t “need” anything new. But I do really want to add to my collection. So I’ve been browsing for some fun new hand knit accessories for fall. Following are a few of my favorites that I found.

Hand knit fantastic fox hat for fall
Handmade Fantastic Fox Hat from awberry – Fine. I admit I bought this one. But at just $25 with free shipping I couldn’t resist. I tried. Really. Just not very hard. *wink*

Hand Knit Burnt Orange Fingerless Gloves for Fall

Hand Knit Burnt Orange Wool Fingerless Gloves from reflectionsbyds – These would dashing with the fox hat, don’t you think?

DIY Knit Hat Pattern - Deer with Antlers for Fall

Deer with Antlers Hat Knitting Pattern from Tiny Owl’s Magic Attic – I absolutely adore this hat and if it wasn’t a pattern I would have purchased it already. Unfortunately I don’t know how to knit. Maybe if I buy the pattern I can find a volunteer who will swap their knitting skills for soap. What do you think?

Hand Knit Charcoal Leaf and Flower Scarf for Fall - Fun Fashion Accessory

Hand Knit Leaf and Flower Charcoal Colored Scarf from Leafy Design – I’m thinking there would be some scarf envy going on among friends if I wore this scarf out and about!

EcoShag’s Handmade Infinity Scarf Giveaway – Summer Style in Summer’s Hottest Color Trends

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

I am pleased to introduce the handmade shop, EcoShag™. Created and nurtured into life by Tania Hillberg, EcoShag™ sells handmade infinity scarves made of vintage inspired fabrics as well as handmade scarf necklaces born of upcycled materials.

Each handmade infinity scarf sold through EcoShag has been created soley by Tania’s own two hands. Tania feels that one of the most gratifying aspects of her work is in finding the fabrics she chooses to use. Unlike many scarf and accessory makers, Tania does not go to her local fabric store for textiles. Instead, she hunts down unique and interesting materials at estate sales, remnants when she’s fortunate to find enough, as well as organic/eco-friendly textiles. Even though it’s a lot more work, Tania loves that she’s able to create something she loves while also being eco-friendly, an aspect that’s very important to her. As for Tania herself, she is a mother, a wife, and a philanthropist. She likes to view each day as an opportunity to have a positive impact on the world and the people in it. Tania’s shop, EcoShag™, was actually inspired by the loss of her sister in 2008. Tania’s sister was her creative counterpart and in many ways, and her memory lives on with each item Tania makes.
I’m even more excited to announce that Tania is sponsoring a contest on Soap Deli News Blog and is giving away two infinity scarves of the winner’s choice! One winner will receive their choice of two of the following six scarves featured below.
