Birmingham in Blue
Silk-cotton scarf. Made in the UK
Our Brilliant Birmingham Collection celebrates the culture, architecture and diversity of this magnificent, creative and ambitious city.
Birmingham in Blue is a versatile medium-sized scarf in a beautifully light silk/cotton mix. This design captures the contemporary beauty and rich architectural heritage of the city in a sophisticated muted colourway. In the words of our designer Alex, “There are so many great buildings in Birmingham. I couldn’t fit them all into one picture so I decided to create a montage with this piece, cherry-picking the most iconic”. How many buildings can you name?
Did you know that Birmingham is one of the UK’s greenest cities with over 8,000 acres of parks and green spaces?
The Designer Alex Edwards
Alex was born in Birmingham and attended Bournville Institute of Art & Design and University of Wolverhampton. His early career was as an Environmental Graphic Designer, before becoming a full time artist in 2017. Influenced by art, design and architecture, Alex often uses geometric patterns and architectural features; his work interprets places and spaces, creating unique visions of buildings and city skylines.
Firehorse scarves are designed and made in England where we have a silk weaving and printing heritage spanning four centuries. Producing a Firehorse accessory is a work of art, British artisan craftsmanship at its very finest.
