The scarf print is based on a monochrome Indian ink drawing. ‘Koi I’ features 9 koi carp, 8 of them are red-and-white Kohaku, a classic breed and probably the most popular of all koi (some champion Kohaku are traded for millions of yen!). The 9th fish is black, this number and combination of koi is believed to be very auspicious.
The red has an orange hue, and when worn this scarf shows a striking pattern of grey, orange red and off white.
The scarf is made from 100% silk crepe de chine for its sophisticated matte texture with subtle sparkle. It has a satisfying weight and drapes beautifully.
Material: 100% silk crepe de chine
Made in Italy, hand rolled.
