Inspired by the splendid amethyst or in Italian “ametista”, Claudia F’s scarf in lightweight silk with an underlay in 100% cashmere speaks to the artist’s profound respect for the materials she uses.
Many believe that the crystals have many fine properties, not least of which their ability to ward off negative influences. Whether or not you believe in the amethyst’s power one cannot help but be seduced by the immense beauty of her creation.
In brush strokes that define her signature, Claudia’s double faced scarf is the essence of the true Made in Italy, and a precious timeless accessory available only in Limited Edition. Act fast, our amethyst scarf in silk and cashmere is a rarity.
About the Designer
“I am the daughter of immigrants from Lecce, simple people, tireless workers blessed with the gift of love and living with love.” This is how Claudia Franco, designer and creative director of her namesake brand Claudia F introduces herself.
She has a reserved pride veiled by a certain melancholy and mystery. Her beauty is subtle, her behaviour is poised, even noble, and her mane of dark hair coupled with exalting dark eyes reveals her southern Italian origins.
Claudia’s story, however, does not begin in Italy, but in the Black Forest where she draws her first breath. At six months of age her parents leave Germany to reunite with the family in Apulia. As a child Claudia spends much time with her beloved aunt, a seamstress who teaches her how to sew, embroider and crochet on textiles that soon become her passion.
