Solena Pure Silk Scarf
100% pure silk. Hand-made in the UK. Designed by Anni Taverner.
Our Solena design was inspired by the interior decoration of domed ceilings observed in Kuala Lumpur where beautiful circular patterns are used to symbolise heaven.
The artwork for Solena was created through the verre Eglomise process – the art of applying metal leaf to glass – a technique traditionally used in the decorative arts. First the design was reverse painted in tonal layers onto glass, then copper leaf was applied using water-gilding techniques to create a softly reflective surface and sophisticated surface pattern.
Creating Your Scarf
All our scarves are designed, printed and finished in England. Our pure silk scarves feature luxurious rolled edges which are hand stitched by our artisan partners to give the scarves a beautiful drape and elegant structure.
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.
