Pins & Needles

My very good friend (& talented textile designer) Nat Stoker and I were on a bit of a last minute mission to find a smart but interesting scarf for a certain occasion recently. Looking at the scarf designs available on the high street most of them seemed to fall into two categories: Bright and flowery or skulls. Skulls. Skulls. 

Now I don't mind a bit of noggin anatomy but there are other ideas to use for interesting, bold, edgy motifs. This is where green fingered Natty (her apartment balcony is spilling over with a forest of foliage), was inspired by her visit to the Royal Horticultural Society Flower Show to create this design.

Nat says: "What particularly caught my eye was an incredible display of cacti, with their natural, prickly symmetry perfectly designed for surviving in harsh landscapes." 

These bold cacti and spicy succulent silhouettes combined with a trans-seasonal colour palette make for something really fresh and different. 

Her design now features in an online competition via Front Row Society so if you have a spare minute and like this original design show her your support and give her your vote!
