I don’t wear hijab on daily basis. I only don hijab if the occasions calls for such dresscode. I do however, have soft spots for beautiful shawls and I usually style them up to pair with my outfits. Shawls are very useful to me, especially when I’m traveling. They not only serve as a fashionable ‘blanket’ whenever I feel cold during those long hours on the bus or on the plane but they make great additions to my limited wardrobe too as I can pair them up with just one plain shirt and yet produces a couple of different looks depending on how you style them. I have plenty of shawls and scarves at home, but a woman can never have enough. I’m constantly on the lookout for pretty shawls to add to my collection and it has come to my attention that a Malaysian artist cum actress, Emma Maembong has launched her shawl collection; My Sketchbook Shawl. Her collections is something worth raving about, I must say.

So what’s unique about her shawl collections? Well, it is common for actors and actresses to come out with their own brand of clothing and use their fame to sell their clothings to their fans but this one’s rather different, as unlike others, the designs of her shawls collections are her very own work of art.

A daughter of a painter and a painter by profession prior to her involvement in the entertainment industry, Emma Maembong has produces plenty of artworks on both paper and canvas but never thought to do it on other materials until her family encourages her to draw it on shawls and turn her drawings and paintings into wearable artwork.

All the shawls in My Sketchbook Shawls collections are also syariah compliance and the length and width of her shawls are more than enough to cover one’s aurah, making her collections a perfect choice for devout Muslims to wear. The shawls are not only stylish, but covers one’s modesty as well.
