Fend Off the Chill with Aporta Scarves

It's a Wrap

aporta scarves!

It’s tough to avoid looking round in winter.

So it makes sense that the girl with the key to avoiding that look is named Sharp.

Salt Lake City born and School of the Art Institute bred, Noelle Sharp is a third-generation knitter, weaver, and artist. Her collection, Aporta, is flush with lusciously thick knits and woven accessories inspired by nature and the Wild West.

Mile-long, chunky fringe scarves do triple-wraparound duty in deep purple and forest green; oversize braided cowls are keep-on-all-day toasty. Fasten soft organic bamboo and mohair orange, white, and gray bandana scarves with large vintage metal pins; wool beanies cover and slouch in all the right ways.

If you’ve got vintage fur lying around, Sharp can craft the scraps into elegant, custom-lined bandanas or hoodies.

Up next: sweaters, women’s/menswear, and historical costume-inspired designs.

Things are really taking shape.
