the souchi story

i have changed.....

ok, not really but...i met this man in tunisia and he has spent his days at his loom making beautiful rugs and i've thought of this picture a lot over the last few weeks.

this is how i have spent my summer: slightly slouching (i refuse to hunch!) over the looms in my studio, making beautiful fall pieces, re-orders and special orders from my stores and the various trunk shows i've done over the last few months. this summer has flown by and despite the exhaustion and overwhelming desire to be on a beach with a book (good or bad), my bff and a chilled bottle of wine far far away.....

i am often asked (many times by the souchi girls) how i can work this hard or go months without a day off? well, it's as simple as i love what i do. the reward may not be the beach and book as often as i'd like (say 6 months a year - under an umbrella with lots of sunscreen of course) but i get to see souchi on tv, in the movies, in magazines and on the streets in ny, chicago, sf, la, paris, london...even africa! so in the end, it's easy to give it everything i have. 

as next month approaches i am reminding myself not to hunch because september is a month to celebrate:  souchi's 12th birthday, the souchi store turns 5 and i say hello to 40! so friends and family i am still knitting and trying to sit up straight because i and souchi are just getting started. XO
