Venice by Akhriev
From my first step into Venice, I felt as if I was in a theater. Every part of every view is so well designed and attractive. Every detail of the city is reflected with stunning distortion in the water of the canals. I wanted to show the theatrical nature of the city, which is also known for Carnival and romance. It is playful and provocative. Many things are half-hidden, by masks or fog or shadows. But not everything.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Serithea is brought to you by Melissa Hefferlin and Daud Akhriev.
We met pursuing an education at the historic Russian Academy of Fine Art in Saint Petersburg (the Soviet Union's "Leningrad" at that time) at the end of the Cold War. Melissa hailed from the mountains of Tennessee, Daud from the Caucasus Mountains of Southern Russia. A passion to make art brought us together from disparate parts of the globe, and for thirty years we have been (and continue to be) professional fine artists, dividing our time between Andalusia, Spain and Tennessee, USA. 2016 sent us a hunger to make art wearable.
Lovers of rugs, scarves and textiles of all kinds, Daud's family mourns beloved heirlooms lost in the wars after the breakup of the Soviet Union. Melissa's people include architects, quilters, seamstresses and women who lovingly pass down a pair of foreign earrings, a grandmother's Hermes scarf, a fine pair of brogues.
We, too, want to create heirlooms to be worn against the skin. We hope that your life and the lives of those you love are enriched by Serithea's offerings.
SHIPPING + RETURNS
We want our customers completely content and loyal for life. If you are not satisfied with your Serithea heirloom you may return it in perfect condition for a refund of your purchase price. Our scarves are carefully hand-packed before traveling to you via priority mail with a tracking number.
