Echo New York founded National Scarf Day on September 27, 2018. While scarves have been around since ancient times for purposes ranging from cleanliness to religion to warmth, Echo believes we are responsible for bringing the scarf to the world of fashion.
The Registrar at National Day Calendar® proclaimed National Scarf Day to be observed annually in 2018.
ABOUT ECHO SCARFS
Edgar and Theresa Hyman founded Echo Scarfs on their wedding day in 1923. They went to City Hall to get their marriage license and decided to incorporate their business while they were there. Soon after, they set up shop in the heart of New York City, capturing its vibrancy in the gorgeous colors, patterns and textures of their scarfs.
Over the years, Echo has established itself as the destination for beautifully made, fashion-forward scarfs. Today, Echo is a global brand with products in multiple categories sold in department and specialty stores throughout the world in North America, Japan, Europe and the UK, as well as on our website echonewyork.com.
We’re proud to say that after more than 95 years, our love affair with beautiful print, pattern and color is still going strong. Today, the rich heritage of timeless quality, unparalleled craftsmanship and fashion sensibility lives on in every new category. Still located within a block of the original showroom, Echo continues to draw inspiration from the vitality and diversity of the city.
One family – four generations. And to think, it all started with a scarf and a wedding. Now that’s the power of a scarf!
