I daydream about touring famous gardens and decided to make a few of my favorites into a new pattern line for spring. We wanted these patterns to reflect each garden, but with a unique take on botanical imagery. This pattern is inspired by a famous garden in Marrakech. It was built in the 1920s by the painter Jacque Majorelle and then saved from oblivion by Yves Saint Laurent. I think of blue and yellow and geometric forms when I see this garden in my mind’s eye, and someday I hope to get there. The second pattern was inspired by the Italian Garden at the celebrated Butchart Gardens near Vancouver, B.C., Canada. Explore more: https://www.butchartgardens.com/garden/italian-garden/. Our limited edition chiffon scarves are double sided to increase their versatility and are sewn at another women-owned business in Colorado.
I travel a good deal and like to keep my suitcase small and at my side. Black and navy are pragmatic but often drab and make me look a bit like a pilgrim without the hat. This blue floral and yellow pattern scarf is a way to keep color at hand. I use mine around my neck, my waist, as an impromptu pareo and on the ground for a picnic in the park.
Printed Chiffon. Chiffon is an ultra-sheer, lightweight 100% polyester fabric. Printed by Spoonflower in the USA using ecologically-safe inks. The fabric is then cut and sewn by a small crew of dedicated makers in the USA.
Wash separately in cool water on a gentle/delicate setting, using phosphate-free detergent. Machine dry using a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly to avoid wrinkles. Iron if necessary with a very light touch on a synthetic setting with the printed side down for best results.
