Our Terrier breeds of Britain silk scarf was produced in collaboration with Country Life Magazine and uses a collection of paintings that featured on their front cover. Including no less than 25 different breeds from the Norfolk and Highland through to the Lucas and Airedale, all labelled and reproduced in stunning detail. The scarf is then finished with a classic paisley border to add further colour and pattern.

Country Life is a British weekly magazine that was first launched in 1897. Originally, golf and racing served as its main content, as well as the coverage of high end property and estates which is still such a large part of the magazine today. Now the magazine tends to cover a range of subjects in depth, including gardens and gardening, country house architecture, fine art and books, property, rural issues, luxury products and interiors.
Macclesfield was once the centre of the English silk weaving industry and the world's biggest producer of finished silk. The area has been printing silk for over 300 years and at one point had over seventy mills operating in the town. The town is close to a water supply that passes through limestone, and when used in washing and dyeing it gives silk a uniquely attractive lustre.
Our silk scarves are printed at a mill that has been producing printed fabric on the same site for the past fifty years and the process uses water sourced from its own reservoir.
The art of hand rolling silk scarves is a particular craft and truly makes each piece individual and unique. We feel that the precision and care taken by our skilled artisans gives each scarf its own unique character, finish and feel. To create the finest rolled hems, the edge of the silk scarf must be softy turned over with a handheld needle and then small stitches are inserted approximately one half to one centimetre apart around the edge, creating a supple yet prominent border. It’s absolutely the best way to finish a scarf for a variety of reasons but the key ones are for both visual effect and structure.
Rolling by hand is the only way to get a really nice clean plump finish on the edge and this gives a really nice depth to the edges. It’s a more expensive process than machine rolling but by using a machine you’re often left with a flat edge and you don’t get the same luxurious feel.
