“Black Bamboo” – a beautiful scarf whose timeless simplicity and remarkable monochrome elegance will enrich casual outfits.

Imagine the scene:
The first time I saw black barked bamboo was in a nursery in Dublin.
Vertical and elegant, the pot to contain it would cost more.
Twenty years later and it’s still growing in the back garden.
I think stem and leaf look best when backlit.
A simple over-exposure makes it something more.

Tencel is a biodegradable material derived from wood pulp, and is reportedly 50% more absorbent than cotton, making it more breathable and resistant to odours. On top of this, It takes less water and energy to manufacture than cotton, and requires less dye. You can read more about it by following this link.
