Tapping into the trend of stylish and functional scarves, the rocker-chic designs are wearable and collectible at an affordable price point of $39.50.
Garcia Artwear scarves capture the beauty of select paintings and drawings created by Jerry Garcia, who is not only revered worldwide as a beloved musician but also gained fame as a prolific artist. The collection will initially feature four designs based on Jerry Garcia's colorful, whimsical artwork. The designers of Garcia Artwear have deep roots in the fashion industry. Members of the team that originally created J. Garcia Art in Neckwear, neckties that were a popular fashion staple throughout the 1990s, have collaborated to develop this new collection.
Garcia Artwear scarves are available at www.GratefulGirls.com and will soon be sold on Amazon.

Jerry Garcia's Art: Inspiring Fashion
In addition to gaining worldwide fame as a guitarist in The Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia was a notable artist. Garcia studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and his art includes works in watercolor, gouache, pencil, ink, airbrush and digital media. His pieces are highly collectible and have been shown in galleries across the U.S. When his art was shown in a New York City gallery in 1991, a tie manufacturer thought it would look great on neckwear and thereafter, Garcia allowed his art to be licensed to J. Garcia Art in Neckwear. It was a popular sight in the 1990s to see men of all ages wearing a distinctive J. Garcia tie. And in 2013, a stylish collection of fashion scarves based on Garcia's artwork has been created for women.
