Luxury devore scarf made with beautifully fine silk velvet and merino wool with equisite textures and tonal shades that are a delight to wear and make you feel extra special.
These unique scarves are hand made in three stages - initally the silk velvet devore design is created by removing areas of the velvet pile and then the scarf fabric is hand felted with a soft merino wool and silk blend to create a finely textured surface pattern. The final stage sees the scarves being individually dyed.
Our scarves are individually hand made and dyed in small numbers, therefore you can expect subtle variation in the pattern and colour between batch making these each scarf truely unique .
Each scarf is presented in a luxury box making a great gift box and place to store your scarf.
Looking for a scarf as a gift? We are happy to gift wrap the boxed scarf and enclose a hand written personal message in a gift card for the recipient on request. Please email me with your message and recipients details.
Translucency & Opacity Collection
The 'Selfridge Spot' Devore Felted Scarves are part of the Translucency & Opacity Collection, a range of felted textiles developed during my MA research into haptic perception.
Intrigued by our instinct to touch and its’ importance to the human experience, I wanted to create a collection that explores tactility and engaged the senses. Investigating the relationship between actual and perceived textures the felted devore fabrics are deconstructed before being reconstructed to develop a complex surface and structure. These sumptuous fabrics invite tactile curiosity and question our perception of texture, especially when the hidden textures and patterns are revealed when illuminated.
Each design within the collection has been inspired by my love of architecture, with the designs developed from my photographs and drawing of iconic buildings. The Selfridge Spot is inspired by the iconic spotty Selfridge building in the centre of Birmingham, a building I passed everyday whilst at studying at BCU.
