About Briēs Cashmere shawl

10007434_1654368268164727_6616770249481548730_n“Briēs” is the Dutch word for breeze. My mother was 100% Dutch and in the late 60s flew for American Airlines. At five I was put onto a plane and from that moment on I have taken every opportunity to travel.

I realized I needed an accessory that could handle the many places I wanted go as well as the many climates. The desire to be prepared for any weather or temperature inspired me to create this “must have” accessory. The unique one piece construction makes this shawl versatile enough to wear many different ways, as a shawl, a poncho or a neck scarf.

Unlike a traditional scarf, a Briēs Cashmere shawl does not fall off your shoulders and is an elegant addition to any outfit. I have even used it as a blanket on long cold flights.

Briēs Gives Back

momUnfortunately, my mother passed away from cancer in 1995 .

In her memory,Briēs Cashmere is giving back to other patients. With every 20 shawls sold, Briēs will donate a 100% organic cashmere shawl to a patient who is undergoing cancer treatment at Cancer Treatment Centers of America.  We hope this gesture helps them feel a little more comfortable as they undergo treatment.
