If you’re a fan of color, texture and pattern in your clothing, check out smARTWORKS, Inc. at Sugarloaf Craft Festivals. This Sheffield, Massachusetts-based textile and fashion design company creates bold, fun scarves handmade in the US by owner Sonya Mackintosh, all of which are perfect for just about any season.
smARTWORKS, Inc’s scarves are made of luxury fabrics like Merino wool, cashmere and 100% cotton, creating a feeling that’s just as soft and cozy as these scarves are beautiful. After getting her BA degree in textiles from the Rhode Island School of Design and working quite a few jobs within the world of textiles, Mackintosh began smARTWORKS, Inc with the hopes of owning her own business and designing her own creations. Since 1994, smARTWORKS, Inc has grown to include a slew of loyal customers, and Mackintosh continues to make each piece by hand in her studio in the Berkshire Mountains.
