Classic hand-finished 90x90cm square scarf on silk crepe de chine. The background of this scarf is a rich grey, the dogs contain very subtle tones of moss green and rusty red. The silk is made in Italy and of exceptional quality. The crepe de chine is matte with a subtle sparkle, has a satisfying weight and drapes beautifully. This format is very easy to wear, dubbed 'the shortest path to style' by Hermès.

The Sleeping Dogs scarf is based on individual pen and ink drawings. It features all different dogs, a couple of labradors, a staffie, a weimaraner, a chihuahua, a ridgeback… and lots of mongrels. Some of the drawings are inspired by street dogs I photographed, others by friends’ pets. All the fur textures are a bit different but as a whole they form a unified pattern of dogs.
Dry clean.
Silk is a protein fibre which naturally repels dirt and hardly takes on any smells, so the scarf doesn't need to be cleaned often.
Steaming the scarf works wonders - it removes all creases and also 'desinfects' it (removing potential smells and killing microorganisms), and it usually ends up looking like fresh from the cleaners. For this you can use a garment steamer or simply hold it approximately 2ft / 70cm over a boiling kettle for a few seconds (don't scold yourself in the process :) If it needs a clean, dry cleaning is recommended (lukewarm water and mild shampoo or silk/wool detergent would not damage the print, but for the feel of the silk it's still better and safer to dry clean it).

Meet The Designer

ARLETTE ESS is a luxury accessories label based on artworks by founder and owner Arlette, a visual artist specialising in ink drawing. All the scarf designs are based on originals of monochrome indian ink artworks. The drawings have an emphasis on texture, which translate into intricate, refined prints with an understated elegance. The label started with her signature fur prints. Arlette often uses animals as subjects, but is interested in the meanings we project into them. Therefore the content of her collections draws from the collective cultural history, a part of our identity we share through image and myth. Her scarves are what she calls ‘honest luxury' products, without any compromise on the material quality or the production process. The choice of manufacturing and quality follows the ‘buy less, buy better’ ethos, so a silk scarf will look and feel great for a lifetime.
