Award winning illustrator meets accessories company devoted to promoting ethical fashion… The outcome? An amazing intricately designed, handcrafted, square, silk scarf going by the name of “My Favourite Bird”… An affordable luxury with a hidden message.
“My Favourite Bird”, displays a majestic image of the flamingo bird, designed by illustrator Hannah Davies, surrounded by her gorgeous trademark fine detail, hand drawings.
The image of the flamingo brings certain elegance to the scarf, dressing up any outfit with the greatest of ease. The colours chosen for the scarf make it even more appealing and “wearable”. Choose from a beautifully, bright red with candy pink detailing for a statement, colour block style, or opt for the mint green colour with gold and cream detailing for an understated but tasteful look. They are both so easy to wear and the perfect finishing touch for your spring/summer outfits… not forgetting that green is the colour of 2013.
Behind the product are NV London Calcutta – a completely ethical company who tie together the brilliance of British design with age old, traditional Indian craftsmanship creating luxurious accessories. The “My Favourite Bird” silk scarf is priced at a more than reasonable £40, a completely affordable luxury.
Providing jobs to the people of Calcutta where poverty is a major issue, NV London Calcutta are focused on supporting the growing population and absolutely define the phrase “giving something back”. The Indian craftsmen and women work extremely hard to complete the work given to them, but NV London Calcutta really do make it worth their while, providing them with resources and work they can enjoy and be proud of. They are completely committed to making a difference to people’s lives via their very own brand of ethical fashion.
NV London Calcutta have recently become fully certified members of the Ethical Forum’s Fellowship 500 programme, an industry body which strives to promote, support and raise awareness needed to reduce poverty and enhance standards in the fashion world.
What’s more, exciting illustrator Hannah Davies acquires her drawing inspiration from the natural world, and her pieces of art are almost always nature themed… Her work fits hand in hand with the message NV London Calcutta are trying to spread, making this scarf extra special, as well as right on trend for this year’s Spring/Summer! Here’s hoping that the “My Favourite Bird” scarf is just the latest in a long line of beautifully mastered designs and products from the collaboration of Hannah Davies and NV London Calcutta.
