Another colourway of the bestselling ‘Koi II’ silk twill scarf. The light soft green and deep purple colours brighten the face and add extra colour, creating a more ‘summery’ feel than the original on dark blue background. (Summer is also a state of mind, of course 🙂
The deep colours of the print go through the beautiful twill fabric are almost identical on both sides of the scarf. The many colours make it easy to combine, and the fringed edges add an informal elegance.
The print is based on a monochrome indian ink drawing. You can read more about the inspiration and see work in progress images here.
The colours I added for the scarf design are the actual colours of the koi breeds. They are Sanke, Kigoi, Asagi, Tancho, Kumonryu, Matsuba, Utsuri, Goromo and Soragoi.
When you wear it, you can choose which colours you want to feature more prominently, as every corner has a different colour combination. The colour palette is vibrant but the colours still have a softness to them, as not to overpower the face.
The scarf is printed in England onto 100% Italian silk twill, a classic scarf fabric with a subtle sheen. It has a satisfying weight and drapes beautifully, and the artwork shows exceptionally well on this fabric. Silk is a naturally sturdy material, and in this quality a scarf will last.
