A colourful scarf featuring nine different Koi varieties, printed onto matte heavier silk chiffon with low transparency.
135 x 135cm (ca. 53×53 in), can be worn wrapped around neck or long and floating.
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).
The variety of colours combine well with either neutrals or other colours, so this scarf is very versatile and ideal for transitional temperatures. It can also be worn as a statement piece on a simple neutral dress.
Care: Steam to refresh and remove creases. Dry clean (Silk is naturally dirt- and odor-repelling and doesn’t need cleaning often).
