Rare Vintage Christian Dior Silk Scarf with Irish Linen Cushion Pillow

About

Custom-made one-of-a-kind luxury cushion created from a rare vintage silk Christian Dior fashion scarf in an exquisite multicolored design. This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful scarves we have ever come across. Illustrating an idillic picturesque woodland scene depicting four colorful birds in amongst a luscious array of flowering plant life. Pretty blooms, seeds, pods, buds, petals and leaves of orange, pink and blue surround an enchanting central pheasant covered in delicately detailed sumptuous gold and turquoise plume, it’s glorious tail feathers sweeping down and across the frame. Bottom right is a plump partridge nestling in the foliage with another peering in from the left and an exotically vibrant colored bird observing from above. The prestigious brand signature is subtly placed along the lower right hand corner. A busy, lively, whimsical picture with charm, character and fantasy, one can imagine them chirping away to one another. It would make both and elegant and dramatic showpiece to either a contemporary or traditional interior with it’s spectacular splashes of uplifting color. Dior was hugely important in the 1950s emerging again after the war in their part in making fashion extravagant once again and is still today the ultimate in the couture fashion world. Made from a luxurious soft to the touch silk, backed in new 100% pure Irish linen, the aristocrat of textiles and certified by the Irish Linen Guild, lined in a layer of natural bamboo wadding, filled with new plush duck feather insert and a concealed zip. The traditional oatmeal color linen is a combination of the unbleached raw color of the natural flax plant on the weft intertwined with pristine white on the warp, resulting in a beautiful mottled effect. A contemporary cushion (pillow) constructed with antique elements by using fragments of precious fabric. Handcrafted in Ireland By designer-maker Katie Larmour Condition: This is a vintage item and therefore shows signs of age and use. The cream background carries light markings describing use from when it was once a scarf, these are a faint yellow cream shade apparent throughout. Also see in the close up photos tiny pulls in the fabric. We feel these do not take away from the items charm and character. Note it is also not that noticeable juxtaposed with such bold and vibrant colors. It is such a special piece and these are part of it. This is also reflected in the price.
