New York—Every September marks the kick off of fall fashion and it also marks the 13th year that the Carlisle Collection launches its “Fabric of Hope” silk scarf, commemorating the fight against breast cancer.
Carlisle creates a specific, one-of-a-kind design just for the Fabric of Hope silk scarf, each bearing a pink ribbon, the symbol for the fight against breast cancer, in one corner. The 2011-2012 design features a floral and butterfly design in royal blue, fuchsia, green and purple.
“The Fabric of Hope program enjoys tremendous support from our clients, who make donations through our consultants, payable to Susan G. Komen for the Cure in the amount of $125 or more. They receive the Fabric of Hope scarf as a gift with their donation,” says William Rondina, chairman, ceo and founder of Carlisle.
“We are very proud to have created a charitable program in which 100% of the donations go directly to Komen for the Cure. To date, contributions from our Fabric of Hope program have totaled more than $1.8 million,” Rondina says.
“Susan G. Komen for the Cure is thankful for its 13 year partnership with The Carlisle Collection,” said Katrina McGhee, executive vice president, chief marketing officer for Komen. “Their support over the years has made a difference in the lives of women facing breast cancer and will continue to do so.”
The latest Fabric of Hope scarf is available through June 2012
