The artist's description: I call this scarf Volare. It is poetic and sophisticated. The design is inspired by elements of decoration found in woven fabric depicted in antique paintings, ornamental wrought iron works in Florence, and the image of a baroque viola with wings. I hand paint the strokes of the wings. I feel they are evocative of the flight of our spirits and our hearts when we are transported by beautiful music. I think that the slight imperfections of patterns made by hand are more delightful to the eye than perfect geometries produced by machines.
Washing instructions: Hand wash in cold water, hang dry. Iron through a protective sheet of cotton or other natural fibre.
