A walk through an English country garden inspired this limited edition silk scarf. There was something very magical and whimsical about the garden that I wanted to capture in this piece. A silk wrap, perfect for adding a vibrant touch to a tailored suit or dress. Think wedding, opera or garden party. When it is opened out to the full length of 200cm, the symmetrical layout is striking and drapes gracefully around the shoulders. Habotai silk is luxurious, extremely light and warm making it an elegant alternative to a cardigan ( with a dress ) or chunky scarf ( with jeans)
Looks elegant when paired with a cream tailored jacket. The vibrant mix of pastel and rich colours within the scarf, allows it to work with a range different colours
Wear it casually with a pair of jeans or chinos
Whimsical & elegant

Here are a selection of pictures I took on a recent visit to India. When I design print & pattern here in the UK, I like to look at the elements of nature at work, for example light, texture, shadows and reflection. The photos below however, confirm that my bright colour palette is inherited from the motherland!
Edge of the Meadow makes sense of two very different cultures working together in harmony.
Autumn is one of my favourite times of year. After a long summer of never ending green the elements start to change rapidly in a short space of time. Clear air, and intense light, bring out striking contrasts and we can enjoy deep shades of reds, orange and yellow.
Beautiful objects fall to the ground, not forgotten and happy to be found!
Digital print design is the perfect media for capturing magical realism.
The images below are Habotai silk swatches inspired by everyday objects photographed at home and whilst on holiday in Northumberland and Cornwall. When you look at something ordinary for long enough you may start to see it in a “different light”
Love to see geometric patterns and organic forms working together in harmony.
