NEW Pure Silk Scarves - The Insect Collection
We are thrilled to have discovered this range of stunning silk scarves, designed in Britain and printed and hand-rolled in Italy.
Each study features a single, detailed insect and begins as a unique piece of delicately wrought needlepoint which is then photographed, edited and transformed into the finished repeat pattern. The designs are then sent to Como in Italy where they are transposed onto the finest silk twill. Each one really is a work of art, opulent and timeless.
The Ladybird ( or Ladybug to our American cousins) - a magnificent rendering of everyone's favourite beetle juxtaposes the vivid crimson wings and black spots with softly luminous white silk. Ladybirds represent good luck.
Each scarf is boxed and wrapped in tissue paper .
Scarves are 80cm x 80 cm square and should be tied loosely at the neck or worn as a headscarf a la Audrey Hepburn!
