Scarves are like vitamins; they give us a much-needed boost when nothing else works. For this sartorial help, we thank Alessandro Cattaneo of Unici whose decades-old atelier has perfected the art of printing silk.
Alessandro works near mythical Lake Como where stunning palazzos and gorgeous Medici-style gardens have held sway for centuries. Perhaps because he works so close to breathtaking beauty his patterns and prints are breathtaking too!
Hard to believe, but Unici’s luxury scarves are a newcomer to these shores, and we feel honoured to share them with you. If an update is in the offing we would highly recommend wrapping up in silk wool blend!
