f you have ended up on this page because you googled “Steam Punk scarves”, then this design needs no introduction. For those who don’t know what this is however, here is a brief description.
Born as a direct reaction to “Cyber Punk”, “Steam Punk” gives us a retrospective view of the future. Taking its inspiration from Victorian writers such as Jules Verne this genre projects itself forward into a fantasy future where technology, as we know it, has never existed. Just like H. G. Wells’ “Time Machine” we enter a Victorianesque world pre-occupied with time travel and exploration, where everyday objects are driven mechanically, powered by the rhythmic click and whir of brass cogs.
In my design an army of clockwork beetles, butterflies and bees scuttle across a tarnished backdrop of star charts, whirring cogs and ticking clocks marking the relentless passing of time.
I’ve chosen 12mm satin silk satin for this design because of its’ lustre and excellent soft drape.
Its generous dimensions of 60cm x 180cm and light weight means that it works just as well as an evening wrap, or scrunched for an everyday scarf all beautifully finished with a hand rolled hem.
This designs is currently in production but is available to pre order.
