Necklush is a patented infinity scarf necklace hybrid developed by Stephano Diaz and Troy Mattison Hicks originally in Brooklyn NY - now in Athens GA. We first started selling our Necklush circle scarves on the streets of NYC in 2008. The results were instant and over the top. People go nuts for Necklush! Our pieces are spotted all over the world now, its always exciting to hear how far our scarves will travel.
The patterns/prints you see on our scarves we print by hand, they are not store-bought material. So when you buy a Necklush you are buying a little work of art(!) hand crafted and handmade for you to order. We have recently moved our studio to the wonderful city of Athens, GA. We are loving the new surroundings and pace of life here:) Now that we have a great place to work we are doing exactly that: working on fantastic new designs, prints and pieces. We feel like this is a new beginning for us and we are excited to present our new work to you!
In 2011 Necklush was featured in the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum's Design Triennial "Why Design Now?" We are very excited that Necklush was chosen from over 800,000 artisians to represent Etsy in the exhibit. Stocklist has included the Art Institute of Chicago. Santa Monica Museum of Art, The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, The Institute of Contemporary Art Boston and the Weisman Art Museum Minneapolis.
