Clothes that tell a story are always a little more fun to wear than ordinary finds, and while we all have pieces that we associate with certain memories, ones that come to us with their own history sewn in are extra special in their own right. Last week we introduced to you Farah Malik and Dana Arbib, the designers behind A Peace Treaty. Their backgrounds may not have the most seamless history, but the scarves, stoles, and neckerchiefs they design together are paving the way for a more close-knit future. In order to win the "Naim" scarf, a teal, black, and blue patterned version that sells for $100, all you had to do was tell us your favorite style from the Spring 2009 collection. Want to find out if you won? Read on and see!

Have you ever had the misfortune of sitting in the midst a heated conversation with completely opposing view points from both sides? It's enough for someone to throw in the towel and give up any hope on an agreement. All politics aside, designers Farah Malik, a Pakistani Muslim, and Dana Arbib, a Libyan Jew went against the odds with their line A Peace Treaty. Arbib and Malik met while living in Rome where they discovered they share a love for fashion and handcrafted goods. They started A Peace Treaty, a line of scarves, stoles and neckerchiefs that also creates employment for skilled artisans working in places of socio-political strife. In fact, the company travels to a different location every season so different local artisans can make their accessories. Watch the video to learn more about the designers and read on to see how you can win a scarf from their collection!
