I know, I know… Not all of you are scarfaholics like me. Never the less, I just had to share these wee finds with you. The so-kitsch-they’re-cool Silken Favours hand drawn illustrative prints turn the cutesy into the oh-so-cool with their gorgeous range of scarves.
Discovered at the Liberty best of British open call in 2011, Victoria Murdoch is the creative talent and creator behind Silken Favours. Finding her inspiration in the natural world, Vicki uses traditional, intricate and very time-consuming pen and ink techniques, evoking imagery that is both otherworldly yet also strangely familiar. She takes a playful and warm-hearted approach to her subjects.
Have a look and see what you think…
But wait! – There’s more…
In the event you are not a scarfaholic, you can pick up one of Silken Favours gorgeous illustrative numbers in a silk cushion. One such as this, no less:
AND, if that wasn’t enough, I have still more!
Nope! It’s not a set of steak knives. It’s this wonderful discovery I made a while back where the gorgeous Liberty’s scarf alchemist, Lauranne Plat teaches you, me, and everybody, how to tie scarves like only the French, the Liberty style queens, and Hermes employees know how. Click through here to check out the You Tube vid’ if you don’t believe me… She’s gorgeous AND practical.
And, one last thing… While the Silken Favours collection is available exclusively through Liberty, Vicki Murdoch offers a bespoke service where she will design a personalised scarf for you or a loved one for £475.00. Bargain! You can see more here.
Oh – the Liberty sales started this week (online included!)!
oh those are PURDY! i never quite know how to tie scarves so don’t wear them but those are worth framing i think…
Hey Lucy – Thanks for stopping by… (where’s my tea cake?) They are purdy, aren’t they? Do check out the Liberty scarf tying vid’ – it’s a revelation!
I am a dog who does not shed hair and does not drool. I am very civilized. I swear when Beloved saw these scarves she drooled!
She is now waiting for the opportunity to click on the link and learn how to tie them. As she lived in France for 17 years you’d think she’d know but apparently not (or knot) 🙂
Zac – it has been said before – your Beloved and I have much in common and we share a love for scarves. If she finds the video helpful, there are several more to be found on You Tube. Woohoo!
It is nice to see different animals on scarves for a change. 🙂
Isn’t it, Mags. I am lusting after the Puppy Passions one.
Adorable! These are really fun J – really! 🙂
I think they’re fun, too. Kitsch but fun… 🙂
Crab on a scarf, brilliant images!
Lovely-jubbly aren’t they? 🙂
I know I’m not a scarfaholic, but that cushion is gorgeous – and that I Love Everything scarf is very cool too. You may be converting me, TSL! 🙂
OMG! – little wee moi converting the super-cool Sparks. Be still my beating heart!!!
The pillow… Now I would totally have that…
It is rather gorgeous, isn’t it, B?
I want the precious pussies scarf! (As my husband is allergic to cat fur and won’t let me get a cat this might be the next best thing!) Gorgeousness!
C – you could get a poodle! Naturally hypo-allergenic!!! The girls would love it… 🙂
…But, one of those scarves should also be considered!
I am really leaning now towards a poodle but my husband is now telling me no……but we will see. I would love to take her walking in the rain wearing matching rain coats…
I can see it now…
