Echo Design



I'm on the rooftop of The James Hotel New York and probably on my second coffee.  (Yes, pinch me please for getting to start out my workday this way).  I am full on lounging in a chaise by the pool and have all my vices (paper, magazines, iPad, camera).  I'm in awe of the view.  It's a cloudy day, 100% change of rain in the forecast, and I have my  bare legs wrapped in a towel.  And then, this ray of sunshines appears onto the deck.  She is perfectly dressed, reminding me of Miss Weather with her yellow welllies, for the expected rain.  She is perfectly friendly so I instantly strike a conversation and compliment her super fun bag.  Turns out she is an account manager for the company behind the bag, Echo Design.  A company that began in 1923 on the wedding day of the founding couple, Edgar and Theresa Hyman. What started as a scarf company evolved into much more over the years.  

The ray of sunshine...

                 



the perfect tote

Echo Design went through many fazes of scarf design, keeping up with the events and trendsof each decade.  A few of my favorite decade designs....


1940's Air Raid Scarf


 I love the different ways they wore scarves in the 1970's, especially around the waist.




Head on over to their beach and swim line for some bold summer pop!
