Thought have based many items in this collection on inspirational women from history, but whom aren’t necessarily household names. This scarf’s print is based on an extraordinary 18th Century English woman, named Mary Delaney. She was born in 1700 and lived a full life in royal and aristocratic circles. At the age of 72, Mary began a remarkable artistic journey. She was inspired to create over 1,000 collages of plants in cut paper, all of which she painted and assembled with astonishing skill and botanical accuracy. These works can still be viewed at the British Museum, where they are kept and displayed. Only two are shown at any one time to preserve their freshness – and now, you can wear a print around your neck with pride! For this Elsie print, Thought referenced and reimagined Mary’s artworks, scattering petals and leaves to give the impression of a work in progress.
