My long-time love of Hercule Poirot and the Art Deco period were the inspiration behind this design.
The striking imagery of sleek and repetitive geometric patterns on dresses, wallpaper, and windowpanes inspired me to create this design and are reflected in the colorwork pattern featured on both ends of the scarf.
