    £85.00 Members' price *


    Part of our Made in Britain range, this luxurious scarf features two traditional British fabrics: Harris Tweed and English dress velvet.

    Harris Tweed is the only fabric in the world governed by its own Act of Parliament. It is only made in Scotland on the Isle of Harris or the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides and is thicker than the softer Scottish tweeds. Like the other Scottish tweeds the colours are striking and within each tweed, upon close inspection, a rainbow of colours can be found. In English history, velvet is associated with luxury- King Richard II of England directed in his will that his body should be clothed in velveto in 1399. The combination of velvet and orb- marked Harris Tweed fabrics on this scarf makes for a striking, fine-quality garment.

    This scarf is handmade by Helen Chatterton- a Liverpool-based artisan. Because each scarf is created from different swathes of fabric, each one is unique and will differ from the one pictured here.

    A one- off, well made item that will last for years to come.
