Womens fashion scarves in pure silk are designed for you in the classic square size of 90cm x 90cm. Such a versatile size and shape means that you can wear the scarf in a number of different ways, some modelled for you by the lovely Trudi, in the photos, below.
the tropical macadamia nut, which is indigenous to the tropical
rainforests of North Queensland, the design has been translated into the
softest pure silk, a delight to wear and to feel against your skin.
The beauty of silk scarves is that 'fashion' can be anything that you want it to be - casual or more formal, restrained or more flamboyant. Part of the image that you present to your friends and to the world will depend on your own personality and how you, therefore, present yourself in certain situations.
But I can't think of any situation (except, perhaps, if you are in pyjamas!) when a carefully chosen silk scarf would look out of place. Just a tiny touch of colour at your neck might be perfect in one circumstance whereas a full-blown sarong floating in the breeze might suit another.
Pure silk feels so luxurious against your skin, doesn't it. This feeling of harmony extends to the colours used in this 'Macadamias' design.
Trudi has tied her Macadamias scarf in a couple of different ways but you will most likely want to try others. To see enlarged images, click on each thumbnail, then hover over sections of that larger image to appreciate even more detailed sections of each.
I made a number of sketches of macadamia nuts and trees then worked
out a colour scheme that would be well balanced, then developed these
into a painting, from which designs could be identified and created.
with lemon and golden yellows, transparent layers of various blues were
added to the original painting, plus a little bit of deep red to
achieve - who could have guessed - many different greens and a touch of
soft brown! No opaque colours were used except a touch of white
watercolour pencils to emphasise 'line' in some places.
The magic comes when you team the scarf with some of the 'hidden' colours. Try it!
