Get ready to scarf up these um…SCARVES!
Stevie Howell is a fellow California girl, a brilliant artist and textile designer living here in San Francisco. Trained as a fine artist specializing in painting and photography, Howell has funneled her artistic passions, creativity, and craft into a career in fashion.
Howell chooses her materials for their sustainability. Her scarves are made of natural fibers, are sewn here in San Francisco, and are printed in limited-edition runs.
Bright and light these scarves are the perfect compliment to your daily attire.
Much like Stevie Howell’s fine art work these beautiful fabrics all hold a deeper meaning for the designer. Visit her website http://www.steviehowell.com to learn the backstory for each piece in Howell’s own words.

For those of us who swear by Harwood’s easy-chic tunics in a myriad of fab fabrics, the new duster is just a common sense must!
Harwood dusters in camel cashmere and black and white wool bouclé are just the thing for the San Francisco gal. Lightweight and minimal. Pretty and effortless – it’s too good.

1. Jeanine Payer
A local San Franciscan and pioneer of poetry and prose engraved jewelry, Jeanine Payer brings her collection to CARROTS. Jeanine Payer’s designs are whimsical, romantic, delicate, and thoughtful. Each piece is engraved in the most minute script (we can’t believe they can do this free hand) and each quote makes each piece all the more personal.
2. Martin Margiela small leather goods
Impeccable finishing, fine leather, and convenient sizes. The bordeaux color just in for Fall is really rich and pretty.
3. Faliero Sarti
A scarf for every season.
This L.A. collection is a new one for us. We love their soft and cozy t-shirts and tunics. I almost wore mine to bed I felt so comfy!
5. Eli Halili
Some of you well traveled types might know Eli Halili for his gorgeous jewelry shop in New York. Eli is now doing handbags and they speak to the designer’s impeccable taste. Structurally they are exquisite in their shape and design. The calf leather, ostrich leather, and sterling silver hardware is superb.
6. Parker Blue
New basics just in!
7. Ilia cosmetics
We love this all organic, ‘no-bad-stuff’ cosmetics line. The new lip crayons just arrived.
8. Goldsign virtual in focus
It’s nice to have a higher rise for a change.
9. Avant Toi
Coming soon! The best kept secret in cashmere – Avant Toi will be at Carrots this Fall.
10. Hitchcock Madrona
A recent discovery from Seattle: Hitchcock Madrona … what a good name. This ultra-cool design duo is, in fact, Erica Nelson-Sheehan and Dustin Nelson. They also own a great shop in Seattle, but you can get a piece of the action here in SF with their leather and metal cuffs.
