Luca Giordano 1634–1705, St. Michael, c.1663
This piece by Giordano depicts the story of the Archangel Michael's victory over Satan and the renegade angels, as told in the Book of Revelation. As a Christian knight, St Michael was perceived as a triumphant symbol of the Catholic Church. In Giordano's version, the brightly glowing colour and powerfully thrusting figure of St Michael demonstrate the triumphal nature of the scene.

Luca Giordano (18th October 1634 - 12th January 1705) was an Italian late Baroque painter and printmaker in etching. Fluent and decorative, he worked successfully in Naples and Rome, Florence and Venice, before spending a decade in Spain.
In 1682–1683 Giordano painted various fresco series in Florence, including one in the dome of the Corsini Chapel of the Chiesa del Carmine. In the large block occupied by the former Medici palace, he also painted the ceiling of the Biblioteca Riccardiana and the long gallery of the Palazzo Medici-Riccardi.
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.
