California College of the Arts graduate and designer Heather Johnson, has always found it ever so fascinating how people all over the world choose to adorn themselves in one way or another. That is why she chose to become part of the “adorner” world. In fact, it was this fascination that was the inspiration behind her businesses’ name, Primal Curiosities. In the past year, Heather’s hand-made line has taken off due to her darling, but cheeky hand warmers and cowl neck scarves. Did I mention they always come sprinkled with vintage buttons? I tease Heather and call her a fiber “snob,” however it is something very special and somewhat rare. She refuses to use anything but all natural fibers including some of her favorites, alpaca, merino wool and silk blends. Taking these modern adornments and adding a vintage flare of buttons seems to really be what draws people in. Both items when worn make anyone’s life cozy as well as effortless in everyday functions. Tasks such as texting and typing are easily done while wearing the hand warmers and the cowl neck scarves instantly envelop the neckline, not having to deal with loose ends as in other scarves. I rightly advocate coming into the shop and having a look-see. The weather is about to turn a bit chillier and Valentine’s Day is coming up….
