Silken Favours collection – ‘Best of British Beasties’
The collection is made up of four themed hand-drawn scarves each one representing the wildlife from a specific area, Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland. The labels creator Vicki Murdoch who finds her inspiration in the natural world, takes a playful and warm hearted approach to her subjects. Using a traditional and intricate technique of pen and ink, Vicki captures a unique and beautiful illustration of flora and fauna in every one of her designs. Each piece from Silken Favours is an artwork to be worn and treasured forever.
Sound the pibroch, shake the sporran
No need to visit somewhere foreign
Purple crags and awesome vistas
Aching calves and heels with blisters
A hotchpotch Scotch concoction
Lush and verdant, soft and clement, free from serpent.
Smokey peat fires, kindling desires.
Sonorous and luscious green
A male voice choir in a pastoral scene
A fusion of shades and melodic effect
All of Wales is pitch perfect
Tell all the ladies who hunt with the Quorn
To take off their jodhpurs, abandon the horn
Then put on some lippie and wear their best gown
That suave Tricky Dicky has moved into town.
