Knitting itself is a peaceful endeavor; knitting scarves the Marash Girl way creates the image of peace; wearing those scarves becomes a statement for peace.

When Marash Girl takes two completely disparate yarns, conflicting in color, texture, weight and fiber, and knits them together into a harmonious whole, she makes real the beauty of conflict resolution. Folks who buy the scarves support Community Mediation Maryland. Folks who wear the scarves proudly exhibit their belief in the beauty of peace.
