SAN FRANCISCO, United States — The wintry chills are upon us, so it’s no surprise that cashmere scarves are trending in the style section. This accessory provides versatility, functionality and keeps us warm, cozy and effortlessly stylish all winter long. This popular street style trend for both men and women, is seen frequently on celebrities and models in today’s fashion magazines, making these scarves the holiday season’s must-have and the perfect gift for under the tree!

Why North Fork Apparel?

North Fork Apparel is an affordable contemporary brand of luxury basics influenced by the simple and authentic lifestyle of Long Island’s North Fork. We love that the company values are based on designing quality apparel that’s both functional, fashionable and made in the USA. This brand creates simplistic elegance in casual wear using all-natural cashmere fibres, bamboo and silk/hemp materials made from sustainable fibres. We now appreciate the company even more for its contribution to a greener Earth.

Although the company only launched less than a year ago, it’s quickly gaining popularity for its collections, designed by Carol Cohen, the highly-revered New York outerwear designer for over 40 years. Cohen has designed for numerous distinguished high-fashion brands like Paraphernalia, Sanyo and Drizzle before venturing out on her own to start North Fork Apparel with her son Michael Cohen. During those years, she achieved both industry and public recognition as one of New York’s most respected designers. Cohen has been featured in top publications with numerous write-ups in the New York Times for her designs as being synonymous with timeless elegance and quality.

Carol Cohen, Founder and Designer of North Fork Apparel tells us the key component of her design process: “Our fabric selection is the most important part of our design process. Our goal is to create simple, well-tailored garments that make you look and feel great. That begins with choosing exceptional material that feels great on your body.” She continues, “All of our cashmere products are made of natural fibres. The content, distance it needs to travel and fit within our need are all key factors for us in choosing the materials we use.

We loved the bamboo terry weave the moment we touched it. The material is incredibly soft, durable, sustainable and has an exceptional hand.

Carol explains that it is also yarn dyed so it holds its colour very well and is woven with 3% spandex, giving it a little stretch. “We can’t wait to make more bamboo pieces. Several are currently in the works,” she adds.

Now, that’s why North Fork Apparel ranks number 1 on our list of best scarves. They select the highest quality of fabric and more importantly, it’s cut, ethically manufactured and sourced in the USA, for quality control and to support local job growth.
