"A scarf can completely change your day, your mood, your point of view," said Kubbins. Among the many styles she offers is one that contains 19 colors in a "missing weave" pattern. Woven on a huge hand-worked loom, it looks fragile but the fabric is strong, she assured me. Lately blanket wraps are popular, especially among young adults. The wraps are oversized at 42 x 82 inches. They were being made primarily for the European mar- ket when Pam's Pashminas began carrying them. Jamavars once were her bestsellers and they are still among her personal favorites. Jamavar patterns are reversible, woven from silk in India in thousands of patterns that date back four centuries. But now, patterns Kubbins and Helen Webster design and manufacture have taken the top spots. Kubbins' newest stemmed from discovering floral paintings by Carol Wallace, a watercolor artist in Connecticut. She worked to adapt Wallace's paintings of wild roses in a variety of pastels on sheer or- ganic cotton. Kubbins also works with Boston designer David Joseph, maker of bespoke clothing for women. Their collection, Atelier DJPK, ranges from formal evening wraps to silk and cotton scarves and custom-made jackets. "What I love about my business is that it has put me in touch with so many creative and talented people," she said. "I trade with Etsy artists and craftspeople around the world. Their energy wears off on me." 145 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | s p r i n g 2 0 1 8
