Designed to act as an extra layer in-between seasons, this double cloth cotton snood is the perfect accessory for erratic temperatures. As the weather turns, the cotton snood works as a handy extra layer when you have dressed a little too hopefully. Woven with lovely soft cotton fabric, that's breathable and light on the skin. The cotton is Global Organic Textile certified, which means it is grown and produced with care at all stages of the process.
Each one is handwoven on a loom in my North London studio. I only make one of each design at a time, and they take over a month to weave 6 metres of fabric.
The inspiration behind this new City Collection comes from walking around London and Liverpool. I found myself continually looking at the towering office buildings and, in particular, the blockiness of the 60's office blocks. The colours and lines of the architecture kept leaping out at me in the form of double cloth. In particular, the colour palette draws from photos taken in that golden hour just before sunset. The colours captured evoke a romantic air of cosiness and warmth.
