A colourful scarf featuring nine different Koi varieties on 100% silk chiffon.
135 x 135cm (ca. 53×53 in), can be worn wrapped around neck or long and floating, wrapped around shoulders or as a beach coverup.
(The dress in the picture is assembled from three scarves).
Koi carp are wildly popular in Japan, China, and many other parts of the world, believed to promote peace of mind and attract prosperity. The colours are the actual colours of the koi breeds. They are Sanke, Kigoi, Asagi, Tancho, Kumonryu, Matsuba, Utsuri, Goromo and Soragoi. The scarf print is based on a monochrome indian ink drawing. You can read more about the inspiration and see work in progress images here (opens in new tab).
Care: Steam to refresh and remove creases. Dry clean (Silk is naturally dirt- and odor-repelling and doesn’t need cleaning often).
