Arbib also aims to bring production back to the U.S. to affect jobs and hand made techniques that are dying out due to cheap factory production overseas. APT did a small project in Colorado employing a family-run business to hand paint silk scarves, but Arbib says she hopes to do more on the North American continent this year.
To tackle this goal, she will be collaborating with artist and friend Jeffrey Gibson on a special collection of textiles and jewelry. Gibson, a renowned painter and sculptor, a TED Foundation Fellow, and a member of The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, will help Arbib to merge aspects of his Cherokee culture with her design aesthetic.
The collection will be released in Spring 2014, in stores and online on A Peace Treaty’s website.
