NEW ORLEANS (press release) – B. Viz is pleased to welcome Susan Walker of IBU for her first New Orleans trunk show, featuring the IBU Fall Collection. The November show will have a trove of goods – from fabulous embroidered coats to cashmere scarves, super chic jewelry and home accessories, all created by and in support of women artisans from around the world.

“We are always searching for the most unique and special pieces for our discerning clientele,” says B. Viz Founder, Rebecca (Becky) Vizard. “With its exquisite craftsmanship and great style, the IBU Fall Collection is a perfect fit for B. Viz. We are beyond thrilled to have Susan in New Orleans!”

Walker continues, “I am a longtime admirer of Becky’s work in textiles and interior design. It’s really a serendipitous match to be showing our collection at B. Viz. New Orleans has such a rich culture with influences from around the world – IBU will be right at home!”

Both Vizard and Walker have a solid following among creatives and interior designers. The two entrepreneurs say this trunk show is only the beginning, and to stay tuned for a future collaboration.



IBU is a global movement empowering women and cultivating commerce through hand-made luxury goods. IBU works with 101 artisan groups in 38 countries to translate traditional techniques – from hand dyeing and exquisite embroidery to weaving and beautiful beading – into clothing, jewelry, accessories and special pieces for the home.

In the Malay language of Indonesia, Ibu – pronounced {ee-boo} – means a woman of respect. By creating a marketplace and demand, women around the world are growing into economic self-sufficiency through the art of their hands.
