From the Designer:
"The bird that inspired this design is the pretty Blue Winged Kookaburra of Australia. This bird is a member of the kingfisher family and smaller than the well known 'laughing kookaburra'). It has very distinctive pale blue eyes and its wings are the most beautiful shade of blue.
Blue winged kookaburras are truly fascinating birds. They mate for life and live as families with their children. So lovely.
This very pretty and unusual scarf design includes hand illustrated motifs of green tree snakes. Small reptiles (along with a wide variety of other small creatures) are part of the kookaburras' diet.
It might take a closer look at this scarf to see that the central motif, which looks a bit like a flower, is actually a stylised arrangement of handsome blue eyed kookaburras!
The vividly coloured corner motifs are inspired by gum leaves and red bottle brush flowers.
The fabric is 100% Twill Silk, soft and beautiful, with just the right amount of sheen."
5% of sales of this scarf are donated to Birdlife Australia.
