FOREST SQUARE SILK SCARF
Forest is an addition to Transition Collection created during 2020 lockdown. This piece takes characteristics of a place very dear to Abeer, her homeland Kashmir. Abeer grew up exploring beautiful trees and natural landscapes, observing transformation of season and space. Intrigued by this consistent shift, seasons spoke to her in ways metaphorical; a tale of gradual painful undoing paving towards the re-establishment of something with remarkable magnificence.
She believes nature is our first teacher, repeatedly revealing to us tales of resilience after battling the inevitable. This piece is an evident jumble of colours- revealing both the season of decay and regrowth. The elevating citrus and evergreen vs. the rich earthy brown and rust tones. Two juxtaposing elements that cannot survive without one another. However, united they sum up our will to persevere and carry on, for no season is absolute.
The Forest silk scarf has an optical repetitive pattern that overlaps itself to birth new forms. The base is composed of an earthy brown and rust pattern, which alters as a new layer is introduced. The rust shifts to a citrusy tone- highlighting the connection between Autumn and Spring as they are a season apart, yet a hope away to a striving heart.
Silks are incredibly soft, designed in Abeer’s home studio in Southampton and printed in the UK using specialist dye inks. Suitable as a wearable piece of art or a wall hanging. They come packaged in a luxury gift box and can be personalised with a handwritten note to make it extra special.
Abeer is taking commission work. Why not expand the Transition Collection by giving it a sentimental touch of your own? If there is an exceptional heirloom object or an object that reminds you of a special time, why not create an extension to it and transfer the colour and emotion into a unique silk.

Treat your scarf with care. As a natural fibre, silk is easily damaged by substances containing alcohol. If you intend to use perfume and/or hairspray, then let it dry completely before wearing the scarf. Any sharp jewellery or object worn will be at the wearers own risk. It is advisable to dry clean our silk scarves. To avoid damage, use a cooler temperature setting on the iron.
