“Coquelicot & Barley Green” – a beautiful scarf whose timeless simplicity and elegance will enrich many outfits.

Imagine the scene:
You’re driving north from the Pyrenees and take a wrong turn.
“There. Did you see that?”
You detour, turn and loop back because of a barley field with solitary poppies, red on green.
It takes a few minutes to unpack the gear. Patience. Focus on setting up correctly. Might the light change? It doesn’t.
Later you learn that the poppies aren’t so random. Sensors not weeds, planted to help manage the soil to maximise barley yield.
Ironic considering the damage done by the product from poppies I’ve seen growing in South East Asia.

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.
