Brighten up your wardrobe with the Squirrels Garden Silk Twill Scarf, inspired by the playful creatures that inhabit the gardens of Hong Kong.

Editor's notes:

Sparked my fascination with plants and small creatures, this design features delicate hand-painted brown squirrels, birds and ladybirds entangled with a mixture of wildflowers and vines inspired by the Hong Kong Gardens. A striking combination of pinks, greens, turquoise, blues and accents of coral contrast with the lovely salmon-pink polka-dot frame. In the most luxurious silk twill, this scarf will elevate any outfit.

Ethical standards:

For the production of the scarves I focused on 3 things: Reducing the carbon footprint of the manufacturing process, eliminating single-use plastics from production and donating a percentage of every sale to charities that work protecting the environment.
  • To reduce as much as possible the carbon footprint of manufacturing, we chose to work with a local companies. As with most manufacturing business in Hong Kong, their factories are in Shenzhen so samples and products could be send quickly by land and without involving planes in the process. 
  • To eliminate the use of single use plastic that are customary in manufacturing, we negotiated with my suppliers to wrap every silk scarf and presentation box in tissue paper, and then to send everything in big cardboard boxes. Usually products come from the factory individually wrapped in poly bags and then wrapped in bubble wrap. We reduced unnecessary plastic by 99%
The presentation boxes are made with 100% recycled paper and as a final touch we printed thank you cards in seed paper that can be planted to grow basil. 
  • We were mindful of minimising the impact of our products on the environment as much as possible, to support local business and to give back to nature. We donate 10% of the price to nature focused charities.
