Bliss House Scarves are woven by Dianne Figlewicz Lattemann, a Seattle scientist, and a longtime and ardent supporter of local arts organizations and activities in the Seattle area. Weaving and selling these scarves combine Dianne’s fascination with colors and simple shapes and patterns, and her belief that unique, handmade, everyday items should be affordable to all. Many of the scarves contain sheep’s wool or alpaca from local Puget Sound herds so the products are truly “Pacific Northwest grown”. The Bliss House Scarves motto “LOOK GORGEOUS. DO GOOD.” reflects Dianne’s commitment to donate $10 of every sale to a humanitarian non-profit organization. 2020 sales donations will target food and shelter needs generated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Future recipients would include Downtown Emergency Services Center (DESC) of Seattle which has carried out groundbreaking approaches to ending the cycle of mental illnesses, addictions, and homelessness; and Oxfam America, an international aid organization that funds projects designed and led by local people in countries around the globe, with a focus on self-sufficiency and self-sustainability of the projects. Please visit the websites of these organizations to learn more about their work.
