UPCY – 100% silk scarf in dark brown

Availability: In 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 dark brown uni colour, empowered inconspicuously with 6 mm Brown Labradorite stones 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) brown?


It eagerly says reliability, stability & approachability. It is the colour of our earth and the DIRE WOLF species & is therefore associated with all things natural or organic. Without being boring, it provides a sense of wholesomeness & order.


God had a brown voice,
as soft & full as beer.
~Anne Sexton
(poet & Pulitzer Prize winner,
1928-1974)

Labradorite – a stone of transformation, mystical & protective in nature – strengthens trust in the universe. Fears & insecurities are banished & immaterial. Wearing Labradorite stimulates analysis & rational thought & joins forces with inner sight.


— I am rock solid

Anima of Dire Wolf


The properties of Anima, the life force that harnesses the energy of both sun & moon, amalgamate with Brown Labradorite. As it protects, grounds & balances, let the dark brown hues of Dire Wolf cover you in times of welcome solace & inspiration.


Vitality
shows in not only the ability to persist
but the ability to start over.
~F. Scott Fitzgerald
(author of novels & short stories,
1896-1940)
