The inspiration for this shawl was the pattern of blossom on the ground after a first wind of spring, at the point where two trees with contrasting blossom met, the scattering of their petals on the pavement was so beautiful.
Created from a simple motif that is joined as you go. This modular scarf is almost a piece of art, a show-stopper that can be customised to use as many colours as you like and to create any shape that you choose as the motifs can be joined in any configuration. Let your creativity flourish.
