Style notes

Colorful silk twill scarf featuring fruit bats and baobab flowers, in a versatile 100cm x 100cm format on Italian silk.

‘Bats I’ features artwork of a nocturnal scene of African Straw Colored fruit bats in a baobab tree. These bats, as the name suggests, eat fruit and sometimes flowers and leaves. They are also the main pollinators of the iconic African Baobab tree, and can be found feasting on the flowers at night. The original artwork is an Indian ink painting by Arlette Ess.

The colors of this scarf are very elegant and combine well with almost anything – from beige trench coats to shiny black leather and anything in-between. It has a satisfying weight and drapes beautifully.
