Sonya Mackintosh is the founder and designer of smARTWORKS, Inc. where she has been designing scarves and managing their production and business since 1994. Her BA degree from the Rhode Island School of Design and diverse textile-based professional experiences lead her to success and joy in owning her own scarf production company in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains.
Sonya can most often be found on the production floor, in her business office, or interacting with customers at fine trade shows. She feels at home as an entrepreneur in the Berkshires as it is reminiscent of her early years as a child in a family of business owners in London, England.
Drawn to the textures, colors, and patterns found in nature, Sonya's resulting scarves are nubby and uniquely three-dimensional with a mixture of fabrics and tones. Those who wear them can express their own individuality and satisfy a need for style and comfort.
Sonya achieves the quality for which smARTWORKS is known by manipulating traditional knitting looms and finding innovative ways to use them. She also enjoys experimenting with combinations of yarns that are effected differently by heat and water and uses only the finest Merino wool, cotton, and cashmere fibers.
Located in Sheffield, Massachusetts, in the heart of the beautiful Berkshire Mountains, the solo-studio space offers Sonya an inspirational environment for creating her designs. All of smARTWORKS' scarves are handmade in the studio, right here in the USA. Please call us for an appointment and directions.
