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.

This design is based on the Lewa Wildlife Conservatory in Kenya. This incredible place was a cattle ranch 40 years ago and has been transformed by the Craig family into one of the most successful private wildlife conservation initiatives in the world, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There is a theme of myrmecophagous species that specialise in ants and termites. The species featured in this design include Jackson’s hornbill, termite mounds, a young aardwolf, A mother Temnick’s ground pangolin with her baby riding on her back, a colony of naked mole rats, a carpenter bee, and lucky beans tree, whistling thorn acacia (which has an incredible symbiosis with biting ants), and the full moon setting over Mount Kenya, as visible from Lewa.
