This pocket square is inspired by a number of drawings in an album entitled Merian's Drawings of Surinam Insects & Birds. The album features drawings by the German artists Maria Sibylla Merian and her two daughters. The drawings are watercolours and body colours, heightened with white and gold, on vellum. They are inspired by the flora and fauna that Maria Sibylla saw in the early 1700s while in Surinam on the north-eastern Atlantic coast of South America. The centrepiece is an imaginative, if unlikely, battle between a Muscovy duck and a snake.

A visually interesting and colourful piece, it is guaranteed to enliven any jacket pocket while the white base keeps an aspect of versatility and allows it to be matched to a range of colour ensembles.

Testimonials


Daniel Öhrstedt - Datinventory

"I was eyeing the Rampley pocket squares for quite a while and was thinking that the idea of turning classic art into pocket squares was quite brilliant and interesting.

When I finally had the chance to see the products in person I was blown away by the rich details in the prints. What you don't realise from the pictures is that the print is actually incredibly detailed even on the back of the square. This results in making it much easier to…" click to read full review.

"My line of work gives me a pretty unique chance of studying finely crafted clothing and accessories and if pressed, I can roll a decent hand rolled edge myself.
