This transforms the traditional men's houndstooth styling by featuring a more jagged and natural patterning that uses the dramatic qualities of obsidian to great effect.
Obsidian was created by rapidly cooling lava, which explains the swirls of once liquified lava. It has been used for millennia for arrowheads, mirrors, and even today as scalpels by surgeons as it is much sharper than steel.
The 30% silk mixed with high quality wool makes for a luxurious feel that is enhanced by the generous length (178 cms). The doubled up width means there is no front and back (found with cheaper scarves), so it can be worn any which way depending on the weather and occasion.
It has been digitally printed near the banks of Lake Como by the same company that produce our women’s scarves, and features an elegant fringe at each end, and a traditional unembellished pattern at one end.
