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 Shrill Carder Bee - our most endangered bumblebee, is exquisitely beautiful. This rare creature is featured in a repeat mirror image pattern with a border of emerald and midnight blue on ivory silk twill. Bees are the symbol of wealth and prosperity.
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!
