The Product: A vintage Cambridge map printed on a luxury silk scarf
An ode to another iconic bastion of education, this vintage map of the city of Cambridge has been translated as a luxury silk scarf in pretty turquoise and green colours. Textile designer Helen Chatterton re-colours vintage maps to create these elegant, intensely-hued and tactile fashion accessories celebrating cities across Europe and farther afield. A brilliant gift for quirky, eclectic dressers and lovers of culturally rich cities, both near and far.
The vintage map scarves are digitally printed on silk twill in the north of England and come with machine-rolled hems.
How to style your Cambridge map silk scarf?
An elegant scarf ups the ante with any Spring/Summer get-up, whether dress-down country-casual or smart urban apparel. Go regal, turn it triangular, cover your hair and tie it under the chin. Go boho, bandana style and tie at the nape of the neck. Or go city chic and dress your neck/mac only. Whatever way you style your scarf, the charm of a silken map invites question and curiosity.
