colour GREY - a tribute to the intellect, so controlled yet inconspicuous and filled with authority

UPCY – 100% silk scarf in grey

Availability: Out of stock

£225.00

Another exquisite 100% silk sensation, this time slightly thicker, yet fluffy, and certainly created with much love for the environment in mind. These prestigious scarves uniquely use the up-cycled outer part of the high end Eri silk reject cocoons which would otherwise go to waste; in grey uni colour, empowered inconspicuously with 5.5 mm semi-precious Silver Moonstones in complete synergy with the stitched mantra 'Anima'. Completed with a crystal closure bracelet made from same stone to style & hold the scarf in place.

Feeling (attracted to the colour) grey? 


It invokes refined elegance and long-lasting neutrality while paying tribute to the intellect – so controlled and inconspicuous yet not without raising expectations ever so subtly


The fundamental grey
which differentiates the masters,
expresses them
& is the soul of all colour.
~Odilon Redon
(symbolist painter, printmaker,
1840-1916)

Silver Moonstone invokes the reflective, intuitive power & goddess energy of the waning moon.  It bestows upon its wearer a sense of calm & self-assuredness while easing frustrations and lending flow to move with life’s natural tides. 


— Reinstates trust in the universe

Anima of Grey Wolf


The properties of Anima, the life force that harnesses the energy of both sun & moon, amalgamate with Silver Moonstone. As it protects, grounds & balances, let the dark silver lustres of Grey Wolf cover you in times of welcome solace & inspiration.


We are the living links
in a life force
 that moves
& plays around & through us,
binding the deepest soils
with the farthest stars.
~Alan Chadwick
(proponent of organic gardening,
1909-1981)
