This scarf was inspired by an excerpt of Karine's diary.
Excerpt: "While I was taking a walk between the millennium cedars of my beloved Lebanon, I started imagining all the things they could have seen ever since the world was new. Back then, could they have witnessed the oldest legends of all time? Were they present when Zeus fell in love with Europa, the beautiful daughter of the Phoenician king of Tyre? Have they seen him transforming himself into a magnificent white bull to seduce her, abduct her and rush into the sea? Have they celebrated when the European continent got baptised after her name?I wonder how excited they must have been when the Tyrian purple of Murex shells were discovered and artisanal carpets and sailing boats came to life."
