The background of this chiffon scarf is inspired by the vermilion (red colour) background from the six tapestries of the Lady and the Unicorn.

This famous series of wall hangings, commissioned by Jean Le Viste, member of a rich family from Lyon (France), is one of the tapestry masterpieces of the National Museum of Medieval Art, Paris. The six scenes stand out against a background of a multitude of cut flowers, like the bouquets that were strewn on the ground in front of processions or noble residences. Presented like a set of plant illustrations, these simple flowers that include the daisy, violet, carnation, periwinkle and mint evoke the domestic or courtly gardens of the end of the Middle Ages.
