Market of Stars Folklore Scarf


Airy and ethereal, Folklore is our nod to the romance of the Arts and Crafts movement, and the beauty of “non-finito” — art that is a work-in-progress. The printed Bird-of-Peace comes from original embroidery exquisitely hand stitched by Vancouver Island fiber artist Kim Donohoe, who used single-ply thread to capture every detail of the intricate plumage. Inspired by a 19th century embroidery panel found in the British Museum, it is a marvel of craftsmanship. The background panels come from 3 separate works created in 1885 by famed British textile designer and artist William Morris. All 3 are unfinished, and Morris’s original pencil and ink sketch marks can be seen where the designs remain incomplete. We left these in intentionally, to celebrate the profound beauty of the artistic process! The result feels like a fairytale you can wear.
