We have been working hard to get some new summer scarves ready for Spring. Our first two Spring/ Summer scarves will be available from next week at the Orwell + Austen online store (www.orwellausten.com)
The scarves are called the Sacha scarf and come in two colour ways (with a third neutral colour way coming later in April).
The Sacha print is an interpretation of falling petals crossed with the markings found on insects, and offset by a subtle underlying check.
The Sacha scarf is available in Watamu Sunset (rich, bright and vibrant pinks with contrasting ruby red and flecks of checked purple) and Nairobi Sunrise (turquoise sky blues, with hints of navy). The colours were inspired by our recent visit to Kenya and many happy days spent in the sun, early Kenyan mornings watching the sunrise, vibrant sunsets on the coast, white sands and warm evenings.
Our summer scarves are made from lightly hand woven cashmere and silk blend fabric (70% cashmere 30% silk). As the fabric is so light and soft, it can be worn when the weather is cooler and when the weather starts to (finally) heat up.
