The idea behind the design is an idealistic attempt to cope with some of the complexities of modern life. The fly lace pattern represents a synthesis of two conflicting identities most of us are living with – being a product of nature on the one hand (in our original environment likely to be visited by flies), and being a sophisticated member of society on the other (clad in elaborate man-made fabrics, perfumed and deodorised...)
The fly lace bandanas are therefore a playful approach for us to be more close to ourselves, remembering the wild creatures we could be.
Medium-sized square silk scarf in two design variations (see also Fly Lace 2).
The colour is a silver grey silk with black pigment print, and it comes in a bespoke gift box.
Wear as a loose or tight neck scarf, around your head, around your wrist, around your bag, or anywhere you like.
Can be handwashed and ironed (silk settings).
