These ladies silk scarves, so luxurious and long lasting, bring a real meaning to the newish term 'slow fashion'.
Take good care of them and they could become a family heirloom - after they have served you for many years, of course.
Instead of the 'fast fashion' of cheap, disposable clothing, which brings with it all the problems of wastage and the lack of sustainability in our fragile eco-systems, 'slow fashion' means that we now are able to choose high quality garments and accessories that will last.
All scarves are attractively finished with colour co-ordinated edging. Because of the individual nature of each
artwork, sizes may vary slightly. To purchase, please choose from the Paypal drop-down menu, below.

These square scarves feature the phenomenon of coral spawning, which occurs at much the same time, usually in November or December, every year, right across the vast reaches of the Great Barrier Reef.
Various species of hermaphrodite coral polyp eggs are simultaneously released, along with sperm, to unite on the surface of the ocean and form 'babies'. Inner reefs may spawn, following the full moon, as early as October, also depending on species.
This orgy of procreation, happening as it does in the build-up to the monsoon season, at night and at around full moon is an exciting and unforgettable experience.
This design is especially popular amongst visitors to North Queensland, probably because it is a true souvenir (French for memory, as we know) of their experience - or maybe they just like the colours!
