The inspiration of the 'fur scarves' was the intriguing thought of very elegant ladies wearing dead furry animals complete with paws, dried nose, glass eyes and all – could this be the bizarre primal remains of our stone-age status symbols, or of ancient shamanic practices where we all interacted with the spirits of animals...? Nowadays we easily label creatures 'vermin', and not enough love is lost on them. With the Fur scarves, it is completely up to the beholder to care for the little creatures, shed a tear, confide in them, absorb their spirit, love them or smile at them, preferably all of the above. And be elegant, of course.
