Vintage Bronze Gold Zebra Salvatore Ferragamo Silk Scarf and Irish Linen Cushion

About

Custom-made one-of-a-kind cushion (pillow) created from a stunning rare vintage, circa 1970s silk Salvatore Ferragamo fashion scarf in an elaborate flora and fauna design. Salvatore Ferragamo was an innovative shoe designer from Milan renowned for his iconic 1930s cork wedges and the 1947 ‘invisible shoe’. In fact in the 1980s Ferragamo used his early shoe designs as prints on their scarves. He first introduced silk scarves to his collections in the 1950s, the earliest depicting African zoological animals and flora theme, the brand is still known today for producing exotic animals and organic motifs on their luxury scarves. This particular silk is a very rare and exceptional piece, and we feel the zebra find is more unique than their usual tigers and large cats. The charming zebras gracefully appear set within luscious foliage. Exquisitely detailed, note the exotic hortensia/hydrangea flower pattern cleverly drawn covering the animals face and bodies making them appear delicately incased in an extra skin of camouflage. On a warm, rich ground of mustard bronze with a beautiful sumptuous antique golden sheen, it makes a spectacular and dramatic statement piece for an interior. 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. Also see our fabulous Ferragamo ‘pea pod’ print cushion. A contemporary cushion (pillow) constructed with antique elements by using fragments of precious fabric. Handmade in Ireland. By designer-maker Katie Larmour Color: Yellow ochre, charcoal grey, soft black, red, leaf green and faint brown.
