Giant silk moths printed on dark mesmerising ‘Astrakhan’ background. The moths featured on this scarf are Samia Cynthia, Samia Cecropia and Samia Ricini, all part of the ‘giant silk moths’ subcategory of Saturniidae moths. The original moth drawings are pen and ink and watercolour, and the Astrakhan (Persian lamb fur) drawing is pen and ink.
The design combines the vivid yet earthy hues of the silk moths with the dark textural fur print background, in a classic easy-to-wear size with a playful ‘eyelash’ fringe. The print is going through the beautiful twill fabric and showing almost identically on both sides of the scarf.
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 can last a lifetime.
