Size 131 x 23 cm

This silk scarf is sewn at double thickness to create a smart scarf that's neat & tidy to wear (& won't dangle into your coffee-cup ;-) It will mould into soft folds once handled, and can be worn by men too. It could last you a lifetime!

These silk scarves are made from the, somewhat old-fashioned, 100% Silk 'Satin-Crepe'. I love quality and its a sumptuous, shiny, weighty silk. Satin-crepe is a type of weave with a beautiful drape and luxurious feel.

The designs are created from motifs drawn of butterfly wings which I layer into complex patterns in the studio in Devon. The hand-painted patterns are then printed on the beautiful silk by the Centre of Advanced Textiles in Scotland. Once the fabric has returned to the studio, I cut and hand sew the prints into silk scarves.


As a lifelong lover of the Arts & Crafts movement, my ambition was to create a collection of fabric patterns to equal to of William Morris - albeit in an original and contemporary way ;-)

As a student of Visual Culture, I understand that we engage with patterns in different ways. I've been inspired to layer my motifs & colours according to these different modes. The result is a mix of rule & intuition.

Layered over a pencil grid (inspired by minimalist artist Agnes Martin) the colours are built as a series of rules according to contemporary visual-philosophical systems. Following on from the structural colour-work of artists that runs from Duchamp through Ellsworth Kelly to Damien Hirst.
