There is no doubt about it, Australian organisation, One of Twelve, is our kindred spirit! Passionate and dedicated to the art sector, they have created a range of scarves that celebrate emerging and established artists within the Asia Pacific region in a tangible way. As many of you are aware, art is at the heart of everything we do here at Skarfe — it is in every silk fibre that hangs in our store— so it seems only natural that we should welcome One of Twelve into our collection.
Working directly with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art centres, the range includes works by five artists: Margaret Baragurra, Derek O’Conner, Ham Darroch, Jimmy Donegan and Samuel Miller. Each vibrant design is realized on a silk satin square with hand-rolled hems and is accompanied with the artist’s card, detailing their background and practice. While each scarf is utterly unique, there is an intrinsic harmony that is so undeniably Australian. It is this focus, this interest in our country that makes these works so empowering.
We are so excited to have found our soul sister, or brother from another mother, in One of Twelve and hope you too will be captivated by their cultural synergy.
