Titian (Tiziano Vecellio) ca. 1485/90–1576, Venus and Adonis
This pocket square features the stunning 'Venus and Adonis' by Titian. Titian was often inspired by tales from Ovid’s Metamorphoses for the paintings he called poesie, 'poetry in paint'. In this painting, the goddess Venus has fallen in love with the handsome hunter Adonis. She foresees that the hunt will be fatal for him and tries in vain to restrain him from leaving with his hunting dogs. The tragic end of the tale is juxtaposed by the mood of sensuality created with the beautiful view of Venus seen from the back.
Numerous paintings from the mid-1540s until the end of his life were created around the subject by Titian and his school. This version was painted at the end of his career and the beautiful quality shows it was certainly produced by the artist himself.

Tiziano Vecellio known as Titian (ca. 1488–1576), is widely seen as the greatest Venetian artist of the 16th century, and gained international fame for his stunning works. He is primarily known for his remarkable use of colour and his approach and teachings were highly influential well into the 17th century.
Titian contributed to all of the major areas of Renaissance art, painting altarpieces, portraits, mythologies, and pastoral landscapes with figures. Although Titian's artistic manner changed considerably during the course of his life, he retained a lifelong interest in colour. His mature works may not contain the vivid, luminous tints of his early pieces but their loose brushwork and subtlety are without precedent in the history of Western painting.
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.
"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. Rampley & Co’s products are as good as it gets where handwork is considered. The pocket squares I own so far are on the same level, or better than, pocket squares that usually retail for several times the price that Rampley & Co charge. The silk is finely woven and neither too thick to become bulky in ones pocket, nor is it..." click to read full review.
