Inspired by a surreal journey in the Indian desert, the Peacock Scarf is serene and mystical, similar to the bird it illustrates. Peacocks are the national bird of India and represent true beauty, awareness and balance.
After a trip to visit the famous “aloo baba” in Pushkar, Rajasthan, Rachel and Fumie found themselves in the Aravali Hills surrounded by hundreds of peacocks as the setting sun lit their way home - an otherworldly scene neither of them will ever forget.
The background patterns are inspired by the stunning Amber Fort in Jaipur. Lush peonies adorn the scarf, representing romanticism and and prosperity. The Middle rope represents reincarnation and continuity of spirit, while the Hamsa hand provides protection and defense against the evil eye.
All of the illustrations are meticulously and lovingly hand painted by Fumie using Japanese watercolours. The illustrations are then digitally printed onto thick luxurious silk to create our signature silk scarves.
FABRIC + CARE
Silk is a luxurious, beautiful, and delicate fabric that should be treated with care. We recommend, always professionally dry clean your garment or hand wash carefully in cold water with a special silk detergent. This will keep the colour and silk strong. If silk is handled correctly it is durable and long lasting, but the yarn becomes porous and damaged if treated incorrectly. Avoid spraying perfume or deodorant on the garment and never expose silk to direct sunlight.
