Description

These double-sided scarves are incredibly versatile working equally well in summer as a loose wrap as in winter as a scarf. Available in any of the colours of the printed linen.

The Carolina Tree of Life collection celebrates the natural history of the
Carolinas in the American South, where biologist and designer Susy Paisley
spent much of her childhood. This design inspiration comes from free-flowing
17th Century tree of life prints. It depicts flora and fauna of the region
including: the extinct Carolina parakeet feeding on cockleburrs, and the
Monarch butterfly (whose milkweed dependent migratory life cycle is critically
endangered). Also present are carnivorous native plants such as the Venus
flytrap and the Mountain Sweet pitcher plant and wildflowers like the Devil’s
paintbrush, Grass of Parnassus and Gray’s lily. Flying creatures include a
Yellow-bellied sapsucker, a Luna moth and a Painted bunting. The black-
chinned red salamander is native to the southern Appalachians, which
have the greatest diversity of salamanders in the world.
