A colourful Italian silk twill scarf featuring nine different Koi varieties.
This scarf combines a classic easy-to-wear format with a playful ‘eyelash’ fringe. The deep colors of the print go through the beautiful twill fabric and are almost identical on both sides of the scarf. The many colors make it easy to combine, and the fringed edges add an informal elegance.
The print is based on a monochrome indian ink drawing of fancy japanese Koi carp.
The colors I added for the scarf design are the actual colors of the koi breeds. They are Sanke, Kigoi, Asagi, Tancho, Kumonryu, Matsuba, Utsuri, Goromo and Soragoi.
When you wear it, you can choose which colors you want to feature more prominently, as every corner has a different color combination. The color palette is vibrant but the colors still have a softness to them, as not to overpower the face.
The scarf is printed in Italy 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.
