The shawl is a gift. By giving it, the giver wants to tell something to someone, “I give this unique shawl to my...”. For the receiver it is a way of expression. Depending on how the shawl is folded, emphasis is on either the alliterating typography or the decorative leaves. A new image every time as personal gift. To someone. Or to yourself. The scarves are hand made in a limited edition.
