Fab Gorjian, 2019, 'Spark', Acrylic on Board
Description from the artist: "A simple request, one morning, for a light begins a trio of pieces telling the brief story of a sunlit romance. Captured here are the sparks, in the moment just before the flame. Colour palette: A dewy summer morning, among grass and pale willow trees, with flashes of suggestive red."
We love the vibrancy of the tones in this pocket square. The lightweight wool/silk fabric makes for a beautiful summer pocket square.

Fab is an illustrator and poster artist, whose work is inspired by two things: the great Interwar and Art Deco artists of the 1920s -1940s, and also the tailors and shoemakers he works alongside on Savile Row and St James - some of the most talented and dedicated craftspeople in the world.
Trained in art-forms ranging from sculpture to theatre design, Fab now dedicates his time and energies to handmade illustration, which still deserves its place in our visual world of photography and digital art.
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 pocket squares 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 pocket squares is a unique 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 or cotton pocket square 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 pocket square 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. On top of this, the rolled edges add a lot more structure to your pocket square.
