Alice Acreman silks 'Algonquian Silk' is Hand-painted, square Silk Scarf from the Evolution Collection which combines traditional textile design with the more modern printing techniques. Large 98x98cm size with vibrant red boarder, as seen in the National Portrait Gallery Gift shop.
The beautiful design takes influence from Victorian natural history artwork, originally created to document species before the invention of cameras. Striking botanicals and small creatures flutter out from a central point, creating an unusual layout and framed by a vibrant red boarder. Historically, pineapples thought to represent prosperity and the tulips are regarded as a traditionally regal flower across Europe while butterflies represent new beginnings.
Perfect as a cosy Scarf or displayed as a wallhanging.
