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

Imagine the scene:
Looking out towards the sea from a hotel room, I saw a black dog watching his family playing frisbee on the beach.
Patience? Frustration? Adoration? Jealousy?
I’d been abstracting summer beach scenes using overexposure and a telephoto lens.
Imitating the sunlight of artists like Sorolla was my challenge.
Later, the lens rolled off a sofa.
The impact on the wooden floor crumpled the filter ring.
My impatience and frustration aren’t in the photograph.

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.
