If there was one designer that has captured the heart and soul of Calexico, it is Faliero Sarti. These exquisite scarves have been with us since the boutique first opened its doors eleven years ago.
It was Faliero’s daughter, Monica, that was the catalyst for Nicky’s love affair with the line. Monica explained that she had written a love letter to her son and printed it on one of the collection’s scarves and Nicky knew she had to bring the line to Calexico shoppers. Monica’s European essence including her love for family, travel, land, connection, and simple daily pleasures continues to weave itself into every Sarti scarf.
Another thing about a Sarti scarf is that they quickly become collector’s pieces and you’ll find over time they continue to grow in sentimental value. In fact, Nicky recently shared her own special story. Nine years ago, her sister had stolen one of Nicky’s Sarti scarves without her knowing (as only sisters can). Then for her recent 40th birthday, her sister finally returned the scarf but with interest by having it framed, and turned an already beautiful piece into an even more meaningful gift.
