Transport yourself to a bygone era of British gardening with this exquisite silk scarf inspired by the celebrated horticulturist Gertrude Jekyll. Known for her vibrant and flamboyant use of flowers, Jekyll was the go-to garden designer for the Arts and Crafts movement, frequently collaborating with renowned architect Edwin Lutyens to create some of the most opulent country estates and gardens of their time.
This enchanting scarf design takes cues from Jekyll's stunning borders and showcases her favorite blooms, including peony roses, delphiniums, pansies, and geraniums. The scarf's centerpiece is a charming garden bench in the signature Lutyens style, which he designed for many of Jekyll's projects.
Jekyll was an avid cat lover and even wrote a chapter titled "Pussies in the Garden" in her book "Children and Gardens" published in 1908. The scarf features Jekyll's cat Thomas, perched regally on the Lutyens bench at the heart of the design.
Featured in The English Garden magazine, this luxurious silk scarf is the perfect accessory for any lover of vintage British gardening and design. Made in Italy with rolled edges, it measures 90x90cm and is crafted from 100% silk, making it a timeless and elegant addition to any wardrobe.
