Isn’t it funny how friendships weave in an out of your life? I have known Paige and Abi for years and I am thrilled to tell you about their latest collaboration – AbiPaige Wraps, year-round cashmere wraps and ponchos perfect for travel and daily wear. Personally, I don’t like to touch those airplane blankets so this luxurious cashmere wrap is perfect. And they come in many colors so you can wear them to accent a pulled together look or just throw them on with jeans and a t-shirt. They are so versatile that the combinations are endless. By the way, they are the perfect gift too! I am showing them to you in a variety of ways in these pictures.

I wish you could feel how soft the cashmere is. That’s why I am rolling around in it. xoxo- Tanya

The AbiPaige Wrap Story:
Paige Lane has an affinity for friendships and style. Unlike many people who keep their favorite finds a secret, she proudly promotes and encourages her pals to enjoy every unique fashion or décor product that she discovers in her world travels. From interiors to wardrobes, her many treasured girlfriends have been influenced by her aesthetic point of view, and often replicate her look and make it their own.
Abi Ferrin, a Dallas based clothing designer, also loves her friendships and has been styling and encouraging women towards positive self image since 2003. Her favorite moment with any client is to watch them transform when they realize that her creations were made for their bodies, and that real women can pull off that look from the runway. Shortly after Abi moved to Dallas in 2005, she quickly met and designed a dress for Paige, who has influenced her life and designer point of view ever since. These two became fast friends, and Paige immediately began promoting Abi’s business and bringing great ideas to the table regarding design, sales and marketing…. And you guessed it, telling anyone who would listen that they must add Abi Ferrin’s creations to their wardrobe.
On a recent trip to Aspen, Colorado over a game of cards, the two began discussing an idea which turned into their first true design collaboration, a wrap line. They began with their signature “Edge Wrap”, as well as a fun and easy poncho. The Edge Wrap can be worn in many creative ways, and even looks fabulous draped out of a designer tote when travelling, while the poncho can also double as a vest wrap, and looks fantastic with a long statement necklace or a chain belt in front.
In keeping with Ferrin’s humanitarian efforts and commitment to ethical manufacturing, the duo’s wraps are crafted only by people who are paid fairly, empowered and educated through the programs they partner with. From Ferrin’s Dallas based design studio, to her partners in Nepal who teach and employ women and men rescued out of human trafficking and bonded slavery, lives are being changed, and the product is unique and luxurious. A true win-win!
Paige and Abi are thrilled by the immediate success this wrap line has enjoyed, and continue to offer limited edition cashmere colors, as well as an easy acrylic/wool blend option. Stay on the lookout for the newest AbiPaige creations as a must have staple accessory, and perfect gift item!Tags: cashmere
