Oriental Rose

i like to give all of my scarves names – it sort of makes them more personal, or rather adds to their personalities… most of the names come to me in association with the colours to places i've been too – like the 'kimberley coast'… but some colours don't have that much of an association with places in nature – like this sumptuous red scarf/wrap…

to me the deep reds and the magenta edges have an oriental floral feeling – maybe like a peony…. but 'oriental peony' just sounded a bit strange. so it ended up being the 'oriental rose'…

it's a pity that you can't really capture the textures and feeling and shiny look of the silk in the photos.
