Agnès Hardi presents this small bandana scarf, 50 centimeters square, printed on 67g / m² silk twill. The San Marco motif is a geometric mosaic inspired by the paving of the Basilica of the same name in Venice. Its Topaze coloring is a mixture of gray and beige blues accented with yellow ocher.
This pattern is part of a collection of scarves with varied patterns and shimmering colors entirely designed by Agnès Hardi. There are geometric patterns, flowers, leaves, old documents, Asian or architectural inspirations. You will find different formats in this collection: the 50 x 50 cm bandana, the 90 x 90 cm square scarf, and the 180 x 90 cm stole.
All the squares, regardless of their size, are printed on 67 grams per square meter silk twill, as well as two stole patterns: Rosko and Vitralo. The stoles of the other patterns are printed on 40/45 grams per square meter cotton voile. The finish of all items printed on silk is a hand-crafted French roll. The finishes of the cotton voile stoles are machine-made flat hems.
Origin of San Marco by Agnès
I am fascinated by floors all over the world – the small pebbles polished by the sea and meticulously arranged in the alleys of Salobrenia in southern Spain; the tombstones which we walk on in our gothic cathedrals; the white powder floor, made daily by the Indian women of Tamil Nadu; or the sophisticated multicolored hard-stone marquetry of Maltese churches – floors talk to us about our history.
A mosaic from the Venetian “Basilica of San Marco”, its mysterious three-dimensional star, inspired this tribute to the floors.
