Designing Mother's Day Scarves at Knotty

by Allison Spiegel May 09, 2016

This Mother's Day our design team took Mother's Day gifts to the next level for some of the special ladies in their lives (mothers, grandmothers, significant other's mothers). Each designer custom-designed a scarf or two.

Designer Laurel chose her design based on her mother's love for florals and the color pink.


Designer Dayna designed two scarves: one for her own mother and one for her boyfriend's mother. Dayna's mother recently underwent chemo and is now a cancer survivor. During chemo, Dayna's mother lost some of her taste buds, changing how she tastes things. With this in mind, Dayna designed her mother a scarf that artfully illustrates three new recipes for her to try. Her design for her boyfriend's mother was inspired by a fabric shopping trip shared by the two. Dayna took inspiration from a bird design her boyfriend's mother had liked, incorporating her favorite color red into the new design.



Designer Christiana also made two scarves—one for her mother and one for her 91-year-old grandmother. Her mother’s scarf design was inspired by a favorite piece of art Christiana had previously created for her. Christiana worked with her mother's favorite colors, observing how she wore the colors in her daily outfits. The design for her grandma was built from the same structural design as her mother’s but incorporated cheetah print because her grandmother has always loved wearing bold, animal patterns. 


Designer Almenia, had this to say about her design, "Probably one of the earliest memories of my mom is her love of flowers. Not necessarily bouquets, but remembering that our garden at home always had flowers that would bloom every year in the spring. Lillies, Azaleas, Honeysuckles and Gardenias would always let us know that spring arrived at our home in Lithonia. It was this along with her favorite color of purple that I was able to create the perfect scarf for her this Mother’s Day.“



Although it is too late to get your mother a custom scarf gift for Mother’s Day this year—there is always next year. But, why wait? Surprise her for her birthday, or just because! The Knotty designers would love to help you to create unique gifts for the special women in your lives, just as the designers did for their own moms.
